Host Nick Cannon enlisted Lil Chano for the iconic show’s first episode of season nine, which airs June 29 at 11 p.m. EST on MTV. Chance will be the special guest captain for the return of “Throwdown Thursdays.” It’s another event he can add to the long list of successes he’s had in 2017, which included his three Grammy wins.
The series is back in New York after spending last season in Los Angeles. For season eight, Cannon had 2 Chainz, Migos, Lil Bibby and Omarion all participate in the show.
Cannon repped the program by teaming up with Conceited, Charlie Clips and Hitman Holla as The Black Squad in a video for an “All About The Benjamins” remix.
