During a recent interview on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club Friday (Nov. 18), Nick Cannon spoke on how he once participated in Kanye West's writing camps during the beginning stages of 'Ye's rap career. According to Cannon, he played a role in piecing together one of West's memorable verses stemming from Rhymefest's 2006 song "Brand New."
"I ain’t never wrote no smashes, but I’ve been in the Kanye camps early on," he said. "I was there doing ‘Gold Digger.’ I wrote the bar for Kanye, ‘We don’t need to stunt/I make black history every day, I don’t need a month.’ That was me. Kanye’s bar. Stuff like that."
