Nick Cannon believes the public is harasher on black actors with messed up pasts.
While I was a fan of Nick Cannon's Wild 'N Out for a bit, I fell out of watching it. Well, that's how I like to frame it; if I'm keeping it a buck, I probably aged out of the show. MTV really is for the kids, right? Either way, I was still surprised to hear that Cannon's literally taken his show on the road, with Hitman Holla, Conceited, and other guys from the show traveling across the country, recreating the hilarious series for a live audience and, at times, inviting some musical guests to perform.
This past Saturday, Nick Cannon and company slid through Orlando to perform Wild N' Out live (with word that a portion of the proceeds would be going to help the victims of Hurricane Irma). Their special musical guest? Florida native Kodak Black, who made waves when he apparently didn't finish his set.

Kodak's abrupt ending got blamed on everything from Kodak “tweaking” to his music kept skipping and his mic stopped working, but according to Kodak, it had something to do with his contract.

He alludes to Nick Cannon and/or the promo team for this show (tour?) breached their contract due to them leaking his “surprise performance three times.” He went on to say that he was only contracted for one song and he “sorta” did three for them.
If Kodak's contract really said that his performance was supposed to be secret, then he might have a case, considering that Nick Cannon tweeted about Kodak being on the show a few days before they hit Orlando. Without seeing the contract, it's hard to know who is actually right, but it is interesting to see Kodak take this much of a stance due to perceived contract disputes (or, at the very least, coming up with good lies as reason to cut his show short).
For those who are wondering, the Wild 'N Out tour has four more stops in October and November.
