It’s been nearly three months since Nick Cannon and Eminem engaged in a mostly one-sided beef. But naturally, it’s still a topic of conversation whenever the Wild ‘N Out host sits down for an interview.
During a recent conversation with Miami’s 99 Jamz radio, Cannon suggested the situation was too much for both Slim Shady and his longtime friend/collaborator 50 Cent. He also made sure to point out Shady was the one who reignited their discourse with the Fat Joe single “Lord Above.”
“I’mma match your energy wherever you at,” Cannon said. “I didn’t start it, he came at me. I just swing heavy.”
He agreed nobody expected him to reply to Eminem but insisted he’s not intimidated by either of them.
“That’s the thing,” he added. “Everybody was saying, ‘You better not say nothing,’ and I’m like, ‘Why not, nobody’s scared of him.’Even with 50, ain’t nobody scared of 50 either. I’m like, ‘Let’s go!’ I match energy. It might have gotten a little too intense for them,” he added. “But [Em’s] welcome to come on my show [Wild ‘N Out] whenever he wants to get down.”

Cannon ended the interview on a positive note and said the invitation is still open for Em to appear on Wild ‘N Out despite what he said on “Canceled: Invitation.”
“We keep telling him to pull up,” he said. “He’s king of the jokes, king of being petty. He’s perfect for it.”
He also showed some love to 50 for all of his television success.
“When I see another black man getting like that, we put all the jokes and the Hip Hop stuff aside,” he said. “I salute him 100 percent with that.”
