Nick Cannon wants the rap game to put some respect on his name! In a recent 'The Red Pill' podcast interview with Van Lathan, Cannon claims to be "better than 90 percent of rappers out there."
Nick went on to say he believes he's a better battle rapper than Will Smith, Lil Wayne, Drake and Andre 3000.
"I am a better rapper than Will Smith [...] 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 also added that he would win in a battle rap against those listed above. Watch the clip from Van Lathan's IG:
Nick later doubled back, claiming he was only joking and trying to get Will Smith on his MTV show 'Wildin' Out'. See his Instagram post below:
