Nick Cannon Says He Wrote for Kanye West, Has Third Child on the Way
Nick Cannon paid a visit to Power 105's The Breakfast Club this week, revealing that he's written for Kanye West in the past. Cannon points to Rhymefest's "Brand New" off his 2006 album Blue Collar, specifically one line in Kanye's featured verse.
“I ain’t never wrote no smashes, but I’ve been in the Kanye camps early on,” he says in the above video. “I was there doing ‘Gold Digger.’ I wrote the bar for Kanye, ‘We don’t need to stunt/I make black history every day, I don’t need a month.’ That was me. Kanye’s bar. Stuff like that. That’s why I love Kanye and his movement because he knows how to make great music, great songs. That ego doesn’t get into the art form. He’s like, ‘If somebody say something dope, let’s get to it.’ Being a part of that process, I’ve learned so much from him in making songs because…anybody can get in front of a mic and spit bars, but to create a song, that’s a true talent.”
Cannon as well confirmed that he and girlfriend Brittany Bell are expecting a child together, what would be Cannon's third. “Absolutely,” he tells the radio show. “God said ‘Be fruitful and multiply.’ I’m doing the Lord’s work out here.” Just yesterday word broke that he and ex-wife Mariah Carey had reached a divorce settlement, years after the two decided to split.
