Nick Cannon Early life
Nick Cannon was born on October 8, 1980 in San Diego, California. Cannon was largely raised by his paternal grandfather, whom both he and his biological father called “dad”. As a child, Cannon grew up in Lincoln Park’s Bay Vista Housing Projects, which is a gang-ridden section of Southeast San Diego. While in his teenage years, he was affiliated with the “Lincoln Park Bloods” street gang, but stated that he left behind his affiliations after losing a close friend. In 1998, he graduated from Monte Vista High School in Spring Valley, where he was president of the African Student Coalition and participated in track and field. Cannon received his first break doing stand-up comedy on his father’s local cable access program
Nick Cannon Music
As a teenager, Cannon was one-thirds of the rap group “Da G4 Dope Bomb Squad”, they opened for the likes of Will Smith, LFO, 98 Degrees, and Montell Jordan.
After signing with Jive Records in 2001, he was featured alongside Romeo Miller and 3LW on the Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius soundtrack with a cover of the 1988 hit song “Parents Just Don’t Understand”. His debut self titled album was released in 2003 and included the single “Your Pops Don’t Like Me (I Really Don’t Like This Dude)”.
In 2005, Cannon formed his own record label, Can-I-Ball Records, with plans to release his second studio album, entitled Stages, later that year. The album’s first single, “Can I Live?”, an anti-abortion song, was released in July 2005 followed by the second single “Dime Piece” in March 2006. It was never released because of Nick Cannon’s acting career.
In 2009, Nick Cannon formed a new label after cancelling his old label Can-I-Ball Records entitled N’Credible Entertainment. In 2010, Cannon created a parody of hip hop pioneer Slick Rick entitled “Slick Nick”. He released two songs by the character such as “I’m a Slick Rick”, a freestyle of Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How to Dougie” in which he attempted to diss hip hop mega-star Eminem, and “Nick’s Story”, a freestyle rap version of Slick Rick’s “Children’s Story”. On December 6, 2011, Nick Cannon released his debut mixtape entitled Child of the Corn.
On July 26, 2013, Nick Cannon premiered his new single “Me Sexy” and announced over seven years after the shelving of his album Stages that he was working on a new second studio album entitled White People Party Music featuring collaborations with Afrojack, Pitbull, Future and Polow da Don.
The album’s second single “Looking for a Dream” was released on February 11, 2014. The song features Afrojack. The music video was released on VEVO on February 13.
On November 16, 2016, Cannon released his second mixtape The Gospel of Ike Turn Up: My Side of the Story. Prior to the release of the mixtape, a music video for the single “If I Was Your Man” was released on November 7, 2016.
On December 2, 2016, Cannon released a single called “Hold On” on iTunes.
Cannon released “The Invitation”, an Eminem diss track, on December 9, 2019, as a response to Eminem’s feature on Fat Joe and Dre’s “Family Ties” dissing Cannon. The track featured former record producer and convicted felon Suge Knight, as well as rappers Hitman Holla, Charlie Clips and Prince Eazy, whom Cannon referred to as “The Black Squad”. After Eminem responded to Cannon with two tweets, Cannon released a second diss track the next day featuring the same rappers as well as Conceited titled “Pray For Him”.
America’s Got Talent
From 2009 to 2016, Cannon served as the host of America’s Got Talent. He announced he would not be back for 2017, citing creative differences between him and the executives of NBC. The resignation came in the wake of news that the network considered firing Cannon after he made disparaging remarks about NBC in his Showtime comedy special, Stand Up, Don’t Shoot. “I love art and entertainment too much to watch it be ruined by controlling corporations and big business,” Cannon said in a statement, referring to the cable giant Comcast’s ownership of NBC. Cannon, however, was technically under contract to host America’s Got Talent and could have been potentially sued by NBC for breach of contract, though this was considered unlikely. NBC executives did not accept his resignation and had been stated to be keeping their fingers crossed that he would instead choose to return. Cannon’s resignation was ultimately accepted as final without further incident. He was replaced in his position as host of America’s Got Talent by Tyra Banks, known for also having hosted America’s Next Top Model.
Nick Cannon Personal life
Cannon married singer-songwriter Mariah Carey on April 30, 2008, at her private estate on Windermere Island in the Bahamas. On April 30, 2011, their third wedding anniversary, Carey gave birth to fraternal twins: daughter Monroe (after Marilyn Monroe) and son Moroccan Scott, because Cannon proposed to Carey in her Moroccan-style room; Scott is Cannon’s middle name and his grandmother’s maiden name. Monroe, like her mother, has no middle name. After six years of marriage, the pair separated and filed for divorce in 2014, but reunited briefly in 2015. Their divorce was finalized in 2016.
Cannon’s son with model Brittany Bell, Golden “Sagon” Cannon, was born on February 21, 2017.
Cannon was hospitalized on January 4, 2012, for treatment of “mild kidney failure”, and again on February 17, 2012 after a pulmonary embolism. On March 5, 2012 he announced that his kidney problems were due to lupus nephritis.
Cannon enrolled at Howard University in 2016 and graduated in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in Criminology/Administration of Justice and a minor in Africana Studies
