Wild ‘N Out’s Conceited Gets His Kicks as Host of The New MTV Show ‘Sneaker Wars’

Few people can boast that they took their skills as a champion underground battle rap emcee, catapulted their notoriety as a gif to the world virtually, secured himself into the heart of pop culture as a comedian on the longest-running show in the history of MTV and then secured his own TV show.

But Conceited can.

Brooklyn’s own Conceited (whose real name is Reggie Sergile) has been a cast member of Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out for 9 seasons, most noted for his signature ‘Cut the Beat’ during the ‘Wildstyle’ round that combines freestyle rapping with jokes. He cuts the beat because, in the battle rap culture, where he made his name before the show, he rhymed acapella.

Now in addition to his ensemble work, he has been pegged to be the host of the new show, Sneaker Wars.

An online digital show, the game show series combines the ingenuity of the Food Network’s Chopped or Beat Bobby Flay with the fashion-forward creativity of Project Runway.

On the show, two sneaker customizers go head-to-head to see who can make the most fire kick using the secret material or accent, within the time perimeters, and with the most creativity.

You can catch the show on the Wild ‘N Out YouTube channel every Tuesday.

Conceited is a host and a judge and two of his co-judges are influencer and sneaker designer Sean Wotherspoon and Brittney Elena, NBA correspondent and pop culture fly girl.

The winner of Sneaker Wars gets a special ‘Sneak Awards’ trophy, basically stating that their skills are better than ever… making them like the “Iron Chef of Sneaks.”

Conceited proves over and over again that battle rap can propel you into your glory. One time for real rap!

Will Smith Talks ‘I Am Legend’ Comparisons Amid COVID-19 Crisis

There’s no telling how long we’re going to be in this coronavirus pandemic, but it’s starting to feel real ‘I Am Legend-ish’ in here. The 2008 film starring Will Smith is about a virologist who’s the last man on Earth after a virus kills everyone.

The Smith family did a Red Table Talk episode with virus expert Dr. Michael Osterholm to talk about the coronavirus and everything we need to know.

“I wanted to do this because in 2008 I made I Am Legend so I feel responsible for a lot of the misinformation. [Laughs.] Just as a family we’ve been sitting down and we’ve been talking. When I was preparing for I Am Legend my character was a virologist so I had an opportunity in my preparation for the role to go to the CDC,” Will said.

Who would’ve thought that his role would’ve been so important more than a decade later? Will Smith revealed that the role helped him prepare for the current pandemic because he learned so much during research. “There was a basic foundational comprehension of viruses and viral pathogens that I developed and it really changed my life and how I looked at the world. There’s basic concepts that people do not understand,” Will Smith said.

Tyler Perry’s Family is Questioning His Nephew’s Suicide While in Jail… Especially, After Being Disciplined for a Fight Days Before…

2020 has come in like a ravishing storm,
breaking hearts all over the place by taking some of our most beloved
influencers. We send our condolences to all of the family of those celebs that
we know like Kobe and Gianna Bryant, Pop Smoke, Ja’Net Dubois, Katherine
Johnson and most recently our beloved B. Smith.

But we have recently heard about the
death of Tyler Perry’s nephew Gavin Porter. On Tuesday, February 25th
committed suicide while being imprisoned in a Union Parish jail in Louisiana.
Porter was only 26-years-old.

According to Union Parish
Sheriff’s Office media liaison Johnny Gunter, he died around 8:30 pm. His body
was found swinging in his cell. He had recently been disciplined on Saturday
for a fight with other inmates over the weekend. Authorities are currently
investigating Saturday night’s fight and have sent Porter’s to Little Rock,
Ark., for an autopsy.

In 2017, Porter had pleaded
guilty in the 21st Judicial District Court at Amite in St. Helena Parish to a
charge of manslaughter. Reports say that he was originally charged with second-degree
murder.

According to sources close to the family,
they suspect foul play.

DaBaby to Judge North Carolina ‘Making The Band’ Auditions

Making the Band is coming back and Diddy is calling on his friends to make sure this go-round is lit.

The mogul was joined by his sons, Quincy Brown, Christian Combs, and Justin Combs, for the promotional video announcing that they will be judging talent in New York, Atlanta, Houston, and Charlotte.

DaBaby announced that he will be joining Diddy in his hometown to look for “real R&B singers.” Monica and Quality Control’s Pee and Coach K will serve as judges for the Atlanta auditions.

Although the “Suge” rapper might be considered a rookie he solidified his mark in the game. Ahead of the new year, Brother Love proclaimed that DaBaby is the “hottest n*gga in the game right now.”

Do you agree?
