Nick Cannon stopped by the L.A. Leakers to spit some bars and took a dig at all of the haters who’ve criticized his lifestyle choices over the years.
“I’m over here painting pictures and y’all worried about the captions,” Nick spit as he meandered over EARTHGANG’s “Power.”
“Just read below right here, in the comments, and I promise, it’s happening,” he continues. “They got’ be like, “That n-gga ain’t snappin’, Cannon give up on that rappin’, that’ll never go platinum, but my haters say I’m overrated, y’all quit all of that cappin’! Ain’t no way a n-gga from Nickelodeon going’ to be flowin’ like that man. ‘He too old to do that again, need to go back to hosting shows, and being Mariah’s hype man!’”
He continued to rap about how he takes care of all his kids, which is often a talking point for critics who over the years have condemned him for having 8 kids with different women, (he currently has another on the way with Bri Tiesi).
“I got you for life and I’ll always be there, all of my children will always be friends, even if they mama’s is not in agreeance,” he raps.
HipHopDX spoke with Cannon and asked why he thinks people have such a problem with his fathering habits.
“I don’t know, but I embrace it,” he said over Zoom in May. “That’s why I talk about it on this music. I’ll take it. I get why it’s pretty fascinating because, at times, it’s very unorthodox. I’ve always been an anti-authoritarian.”
He continued, “I get it, I’m outspoken and I try to do things my way, so when it comes to my personal, the people are like, ‘How did he do this?’ I’ve been like this since I was a kid. People always question how I was able to interact with certain women, how I was able to move the way the way I move.”
