Los Angeles, CA – After filming in New York City for several seasons, MTV2’s Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out returned to Los Angeles in 2016, where it all began. Since then, the popular sketch comedy and improv show has continued pumping out episodes, culminating with Season 8, which kicked off in August of last year.
The series puts two teams of A-List celebrities — the Gold Squad and Platinum Squad — against each other in a series of “Wild ‘N Out games,” which are essentially “improvisational” comedy games. This season, the Gold Squad is led by Cannon while the celebrity guest is captain of the Platinum Squad. After three games, the Gold and Platinum Squads square off against each other in the final “Wildstyle” round, and must execute a punchline directed at their opponent’s team member(s) packaged in a freestyle rap.
MTV2 has already knocked out 10 episodes of Season 8 and on March 2, the series picks up again with a fresh batch. The most recent episode aired on October 6, 2016 and welcomed guests Stevie J and Joseline of Love & Hip Hop, and Yo Gotti. Past guests this season also included Timbaland, Erykah Badu, T.I., Jadakiss, Tyga, and Travis Scott.
Of course, no episode is complete without a musical performance and for the premiere of Season 8, Episode 11, the musical guest is Flo Rida, who will be followed by Big Baby D.R.A.M. on March 9. Migos returns to the show on April 6 as well, which will undoubtedly result in plenty of debauchery.
Tune in for the premiere Thursday (March 2) at 9 EST.
