If you’re an avid watcher of MTV2’s improv show “Wild N Out,” then you’ve witnessed how Nick Cannon’s past relationship and his underwhelming rap career are the butt of many jokes. Well, those jokes may have gotten under his skin a bit because he’s ready to prove he has a nice 16 in a rap battle against anyone willing to put their money where their mouth is … literally.
On June 25, “WildStyle,” which is the name of Wild N Out‘s last rap freestyle segment, will make its debut on the BET Experience stage and the comedian took to Twitter to challenge those rappers who want to go bar for bar with him. The catch: both parties are required to put up $100,000.
After announcing the challenge, the “America’s Got Talent” host followed up with tweets that exude a sense of anxiety and confidence that he will come out victorious in the challenge. He’s threatened to call out the rappers who turned down the offer behind the scenes and has already decided what he’d do with the money once he wins. “And once I win… I’m donating their 100K to the Children’s hospital!!! …,” Nick tweeted.
Since then, a few rappers, including Murda Mook, Adrien Broner and Bow Wow have expressed their interest in the battle. However, Canadian battle rapper and former Freestyle Friday champion, Charron, took it a step further and posted a YouTube video accepting the offer in the form of a freestyle coming at the “Wild N Out” host. Furthermore, he provides a bank statement and two conditions that must be met for him to battle; one being an agreement on the judges and a chance to join the Wild N Out Cast as their newest member.
The rap challenge is nothing more than a meeting of the minds. BET was known for Freestyle Fridays on their former hit show “106 and Park.”
No official announcements have been made on who Nick’s official opponents will be, but this resurgence of freestyle battling is definitely great for the culture.
