Nick Cannon has hip-hop fight night all sorted out- especially when it comes to Kanye West.
The 38-year-old entertainer, speaking with Raq Rants on BET Sunday, was asked about his past beef with the Famous singer – and what might have happened if the two fought.
Last fall, tensions flared between West and Cannon when the former America’s Got Talent host hinted at a past relationship between West’s wife and rapper Drake, but tempers eventually cooled.
Asked about what would have happened if things came to blows between he and Kanye, Cannon replied, ‘Who do you think?’ bandarq
The San Diego, California native made clear he has no intention to rehash his hard feelings with West, saying that ‘hopefully it would never have to get to that,’ as ‘two kings shouldn’t be fighting.’
Cannon still asserted himself in a playful manner, pointing to a home gym set-up in the background: ‘For conversation’s sake you see that gym over there – we ain’t playing around.’
Cannon wasn’t fully down on Kanye’s fighting ability, as he said he would pick the Heartless singer to take Drake in a fistfight, citing his fiery passion.
‘Kanye got more fire than Drake – Drake ain’t built like that,’ said Cannon.
Things heated up between Cannon and West last fall when Cannon, speaking with Complex’s Everyday Struggle, hinted that there could be more of a history between Kim and Drake then the public is aware of.
‘As a fan, stepping back, there’s something real personal Drake holds over that whole family, that he’s like, “Y’all don’t want me to let this out,”‘ Cannon said.
Kim, who formerly dated Cannon around 2006, posted in response on Instagram, ‘Never happened. End of story.’
In a response clip he posted to social media, Kanye put his foot down with Cannon.
‘Like, I understand that you used to date my wife, but you get in an interview, don’t mention my wife,’ the Runaway singer said. “If someone brings my wife up, you say, “Hey, I respect that man, I’m not speaking on that.”
‘Don’t be making no suggestions, like nobody f***ed my wife.’
Cannon’s interview airs on Tuesday at 11/10c on BET.
