Nick Cannon Early Life

Nick Cannon was born in San Diego, California on October 8, 1980. He was mostly raised by his grandfather. He grew up in Lincoln Park’s Bay Vista Housing Projects. Cannon was affiliated with the Lincoln Park Bloods street gang as a teenager, but left the gang behind when he lost a close friend to violence. He began performing at the early age of 8, and at age 11 he was already performing comedy on his father’s local cable access television show. Cannon graduated from Monte Vista High School in 1998. Nick later moved to Hollywood where he landed several stand up comedy gigs at such places like The Laugh Factory, The Improv, and The Comedy Store. Nick’s big television debut came when he landed a role on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy show, “All That”, in the mid-90s. Cannon was also part of a rap group as a teenager, Da G4 Dope Bomb Squad, and the group opened for popular nineties acts like LFO, 98 Degrees, Montell Jordan, and Will Smith.

On-Screen Career

In 2002, Nick had a small appearance in “Men in Black II”. His first starring role came when he played main character Devon Miles in the movie “Drumline” in 2002, and the following year in the comedy, “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”. Other films include “Shall We Dance”, “Roll Bounce”, and 2006’s “Bobby.” His role in “Bobby” got him a nod from the Screen Actors Guild Award in 2007, and he was honored with the Breakthrough Actor of the Year Award at the Cannes Film Festival for his performance. Nick later starred in 2015’s Spike Lee flick “Chi Raq”. Cannon ran “Wild & Out”, a successful television comedy sketch show on MTV from 2005-2007, for a total of 4 seasons. The show was revived in 2012 with Nick as the host.

Nick Cannon began his professional career not long after graduating from high school, although this was initially a variety of smaller roles and songs. While he was involved in a variety of things during these early years, there are a few of them that stand out from the rest during this time.

For example, he had several guest roles in a variety of popular television roles during this time. While he was far from the biggest name in any of these shows at the time, they did help him to become more popular and gain a significant amount of attention.

Some of the more prominent roles during this time include appearing on All That regularly between 1998 and 2000, as well as Kenan & Kel between 1998 and 1999. Alongside this, he appeared in a few episodes of The Parkers and Taina during this time. All of this eventually led to the rising star starting The Nick Cannon Show between 2002 and 2003.

Life Before Fame

Nick Cannon was born in San Diego, California, on October 8, 1980. When he was still young, his parents divorced, and he spent much of his childhood being raised by his grandparents. While still young, he began learning a variety of musical instruments, many of which were bought for him by his father.

During this time, he was a member of a local gang called the Lincoln Park Bloods, although he subsequently left after a close friend of his was killed. Following this, he eventually graduated from high school in 1998, after which he began his comedy career.

Alongside this, he would form a rap group with his friend Steve Groves, called Da G4 Dope Bomb Squad. However, it would be several years before the group saw success. During this time, he began getting involved in a variety of other creative outlets, many of which would prove to be useful for his career in the following years.
