What happens when you get Nick Cannon together with celebrities like performer Iggy Azalea, rapper Tyga, and Kardashian clan member Scott Disick? Nothing short of a wild time, which is why the upcoming season of Wild ‘N Out is set to be its best yet.

“We’ve got bigger talent, more fun, and its really just diving into everything that people are scared to talk about,” says Cannon of the show, which first premiered in 2005. “They come on the show and they let it all out, from Tyga, to Iggy Azalea, to Scott Disick. All the people we’ve had on this show are just having the best time, but they’re in rare form.”

In its newest iteration, the show – a mix of rap battles and rapid-fire improv – will move from MTV2 to its original MTV home, and will see the its guests go head-to-head over the day’s hottest headlines. No one and nothing is off the table – not even when it comes to the host himself, who is roasted in an upcoming episode opposite Tyga.

“It’s full of surprises and we don’t pull any punches. All the things that you see in the media about him and me, we both go at each other in a real way,” says Cannon of the rapper, who famously dated Kylie Jenner. “He’s bringing up my exes, I’m bringing up his exes, there’s a whole lot of exes going on. No holds barred.”
