Nick Cannon seems to have a false sense of what his stature in pop culture (as well as music) truly is. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Cannon truly solidified why folks tend to identify him as “corny.” His attempts to explain the meaning of the album’s title, in addition to constantly referencing “white people,” was cringeworthy. Spewing vapid and extremely irrelevant comparisons to one hit wonders, whose songs were actually catchy, Cannon managed to turn the interview into an incoherent stream of name dropping. He even accomplished the feat of branding Eazy-E’s “Boyz-N-The-Hood” as “White People Party Music,” saying:
“Stuff that started off as hood, black people music ends up being white people party music. Like Montel Williams’s “This is How We Do It”? Nah, that’s white people party music at this point. All those types of things. You know what’s crazy? Even Eazy-E’s “Boyz-N-the-Hood” is white people party music at this point.”
A timeless joint transcends the notion of being specifically meant for one race or creed of people. Based on that quote, as well as the entire interview, we should all be reminded to never trust Nick Cannon’s stance on anything remotely related to music (shit, pop culture in general) if it isn’t related to Nickelodeon.
