After a far too long hiatus, Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out” returns July 9 to MTV2! As we await the highly anticipated sketch show comeback, each Throwback Thursday we’ll be getting nostalgic about some of the most memorable moments and cast members from the series’ first four seasons. We can’t think of a better way to utilize the #TBT hash tag!
#TBT: Kanye West performs on Season 2 of “Wild ‘N Out”
If you think Kanye West‘s shocking behavior started with his online rants and VMA stage crash, think again! West was “Wildin’ Out” years before his anger issues became office gossip. Way back in 2006, during his Christmas sweater phase, the rapper let his freak flag fly on the zaniest comedy show MTV had to offer: “Wild ‘N Out.”
The still above features Kanye performing his then hit single, “Brand New,” during his second stint on the show. When he first appeared during Season 1, he not only rocked the stage with “Diamonds,” but also demolished Nick Cannon and the rest of the Red Team during the Wildstyle Freestyle. Note to all aspiring comedians: Never battle Kim K‘s baby daddy in a freestyle war. You will lose.
