• Nick Cannon to release musical comedy album; listen to a track here

    Man, Nick Cannon’s come a long way since his start on Nickelodeon’s All That. Turns out, in addition to being a comedian, he’s trying on the musician mantle. PerezHilton tells us that accompanying his upcoming stand-up comedy special will be a musical comedy album called Mr. Showbiz, featuring Akon as guest vocalist. Two releases at once? Damn.

    Curious what the album will be like? Take a listen at the first single from the album, called “Famous.” Catchy!
