Nick Cannon Says Mariah Carey Could Only Do A "Verzuz" With R. Kelly
As Hip Hop is still reeling from the high of seeing The LOX and Dipset on the last Verzuz, conversations have already begun about future appearances. Now, The Breakfast Club has shared their own ideas and opinions on who they think should show face on the popular series. Previously, when Nick Cannon paid them a visit, they questions him as to who he thinks would be able to match the talents of his ex-wife, Mariah Carey.
"Who could go against Mariah? Sh*t, I don't think—it's unfortunate, and this is...I don't even wanna open up this can, but the only person who has the level of talent and hits," Nick began as Charlamagne continuously interrupted him. Whitney Houston's name was thrown out but Cannon disagreed.
"'Cause Mariah writes, a lot of people gotta understand, Mariah's a musician. I'm not impressed by people that can perform songs that it took thirty people to make with you," Cannon added. The hosts argued that statement negated artists like Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, and Rihanna. Cannon stuck to his guns and basically said that the greatest of the greatest are those who can lock themselves in a room and come up with a hit on their own.
"The only person in this day and age that could have gone against Mariah Carey because she writes all of her songs, she actually produces all of her songs, she puts the songs together and performs them at a high level...R. Kelly." Cannon continued to boast about his ex-wife's talents and said even a Verzuz with Mariah and Janet Jackson would be "fire," but he doesn't believe there are many artists who could hold a torch to the mother of his twins, Monroe and Morrocan.
