Mac Miller and Chanel West Coast were among the stars psyched to see “Wild ’N Out” revamped on MTV2, but Nick Cannon’s next opponent may be the biggest super-fan of them all. Tuesday’s celeb guest, Machine Gun Kelly, tells us in the backstage interview below that the show’s return reminds him of the hottest musical sensation in the last 10 years.
“’Wild ’N Out’ is like Justin Timberlake,” MGK says. “When it’s there, it’s sweet and you love it, and then when it goes away, you miss it…and when it comes back, you’re back on the train,” he explains. Well, when you put it that way — consider us the conductor!
Like Joe Budden, MGK’s confident in what he can bring to the Wildstyle. “It’s like ’8 Mile’ all over again in that jump,” he says. That’s a tall order, MGK — let’s hope you can put your money where your mouth is!
Check out the clip, and tune in to “Wild ’N Out,” Tuesday at 11/10c on MTV2 to see if MGK reaches Eminem levels of rap mastery.
