Nick Cannon claims he is a better rapper than Lil Wayne, Andre 3000, and Drake.
The host of the popular comedy skit show Wild’N Out stopped by TMZ’s Van Lathan’s podcast “Red Pill” to talk his upcoming late night show, recent beefs with Kanye West and Azealia Banks, and to let the world know that he can rap better than some of the greatest musicians of our time. While with Lathan, the Cannon discussed how he was once a battle rapper and how he could still spit some bars if given the opportunity.
“I am a better rapper than Will Smith. I’m better than 90% of the rappers out there. I freestyle so well that I don’t even do it no more. […] I would call Lil Wayne one of the greatest, Drake one of the greatest, Andre 3000, but it’s like, you put those cats in a battle form going back and forth and they not gonna be able to do it,” Cannon said. He also said that he would be up for a battle with Smith, and that he out rap every person he named.
While Cannon didn’t make it as far as a rapper the media mogul did have a few hits like “Giglo,” “Feelin’ Freaky ”and “Your Pops Don’t Like Me (I Really Don’t Like This Dude).”
