Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon is a multi-talented celebrity TV host, actor, rapper, and producer from San Diego, California. He first broke into the world of entertainment as a teenage actor on Nickelodeon’s long-running series All That. He eventually went on to star in The Nick Cannon Show, a self-titled comedy series on the network. With experience as a comedian, Nick Cannon began to explore the world of hip-hop as well. As a 21-year-old rapper, Cannon signed a deal with Jive Records. After dropping his first album, he formed his own label entitled Can-I-Ball Records. But as he was gearing up to drop his second album, his acting career hit another stride when he got the opportunity to host and executive produce his own show on MTV called Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out. Cannon made his way to the big screen, as well, by starring in movies like Love Don’t Cost A Thing and Drumline. In 2008, he married Mariah Carey, and the couple would eventually have twins. Unbeknownst to Cannon at the time, that marriage would go on to spark a beef with Eminem, which to this day, has never really ended. That beef didn’t affect his bag, though. In 2009, he began to host America’s Got Talent and was also named as the chairman for Teenick–a role he still holds. In 2019, it was also announced that Nick Cannon will be hosting his own talk show, which is in the works for 2020.
