Nicholas Scott Cannon (born October 8, 1980) is an American actor, rapper and comedian.

Biography

Early life

He was born in San Diego,Califorina to James Cannon and Beth Hackett. He attended Avocado Elementary School in Spring Valley California, Quail Hollow Middle School in Charlotte, North Carolina and Monte Vista High School in Spring Valley, California. He began performing at the age of eight, and later formed the rap duo"Da Bomb Squad" with his best friend. Together they opened for the likes of Will Smith, LFO, 98 Degrees, and Montell Jordan. When Cannon was sixteen, he moved to Hollywood, where he performed at such comedy clubs as The Improv, The Laugh Factory and the Comedy Store.

Career

Cannon began as a writer for the famous duo Kenan & Kel then he moved onto working for Nickelodeon. Nick started off as a stand-up man to warm up the audience of All That. He quickly landed a starring role on the show in 1998. He landed his own show on the channel, The Nick Cannon Show, which he starred, executive produced, created and composed the theme song for. He has also appeared in several films, including leading roles in 2002's Drumline, Love Don't Cost a Thing, and the 2005 Underclassman. He voiced as Louis the mouse in The Garfield Movie, and voiced Officer Lister in Monster House. In 2006, he appeared in the movie Goal! 2 as a player for the English football team Arsenal and also in 2007 the Day of the Dead remake.

Cannon also has collaborated with many musicians such as Lil' Romeo, 3LW and appeared on soundtracks. He released his 2003 eponymous debut album, which sold 200,000 copies, and went on tour with B2K in the summer of 2003.

Cannon has recently created a song "Can I live?" which is being associated as a pro-life message, even though he himself has denied that the song is a political statement. The song is about his mother, who at 17 in 1979, leaves an abortion clinic after she feels her growing baby is speaking to her and feels she cannot end his life. The song is meant as a thank you to his mother for sparing him from an abortion, and as a message to all women facing this difficult decision. His mother makes a cameo appearance at the end as he speaks:

It's uplifting, for real y'all. I ain't passing no judgment. Ain't making no decisions. I am just telling y'all my story. I love life. I love my mother for giving me life. We all need to appreciate life. A strong woman that had to make a sacrifice. Thanks for listening. Thanks for listening. Mama, thanks for listening...

The song's chorus is Nick and a group of children singing, "Can I live, Can I live." The words are supposed to be from the unborn babies to their mothers.

Cannon is the producer and host of MTV's improv comedy show Wild 'N Out which debuted in 2005, and features actors such as Katt Williams. He also released his first single, "Can I Live," featuring Anthony Hamilton, from Cannon's upcoming album, Stages, the same year.

Wild 'N Out returned for its third season on August 10, 2006 and ended October 5 of that year. A new sketch comedy show created by Cannon, called Short Circuitz debuted on April 5, 2007.
