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!

[WATCH] LL Cool J Says He Stopped Kobe Bryant From Making a Gangsta Rap Album

During and after the emotional memorial of basketball icon Kobe Bryant, many fans and notables have spoken publicly about their memories of the NBA star, but none have a memory of the “Mamba” quite like rap ver LL Cool J.

In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, the “Mama Said Knock You Out” emcee talked about the time that Bryant played an album for him and needless to say, Mr. Smith wasn’t giving the project the nod.

Two decades ago, Kobe did drop a full-length studio album entitled K.O.B.E., which featured supermodel Tyra Banks on the title track. LL says that this wasn’t that. See the interview below.

In an exclusive interview on Fox Soul’s One On One with songstress Keyshia Cole, Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa’s former flame expounded on how the tragic death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna in that horrific helicopter crash on January 26 inspired her to get the tattoo of her children’s names that she always wanted.

[WATCH] The D.O.C. Reveals New Details About The Night Of His Near-Fatal Car Accident

“Not the D.O.C., but similar to them letters ’cause no one can do it better..” -Jay-Z “P.S.A.”

Even with the accolades from Hip Hop’s next generational leaders, Dallas-born emcee/songwriter Tracy Curry aka The D.O.C. has virtually faded out of the realm of recognition when it comes to his decades-long contribution to the culture. From co-writing N.W.A.’s pivotal Straight Outta Compton album to his 1989 No One Can Do It Better solo LP, D.O.C. is undoubtedly one of the most underrated figures of Hip Hop’s Golden Era.

Six months after the release of his solo album, Curry was involved in a horrific car crash in California that left his voice box and larynx crushed, making his voice virtually inaudible. Curry’s unwavering spirit kept him in the game, appearing on Dr. Dre’s iconic The Chronic album with his unmistakeable overtly-raspy tone.

In an exclusive two-part interview on The David Banner Podcast, D.O.C. unveils some of the intimate happenings inside of the N.W.A. camp, but more importantly, some never before heard details about the car accident that almost took his life.

[WATCH] Actor Jason Mitchell Denies Sexual Misconduct Allegations On ‘The Breakfast Club’

Actor Jason Mitchell, who was fired from his management company, The Chi series and the Netflix series Desperados because of the sexual misconduct accusations made against him, speaks about the controversy in his interview with The Breakfast Club yesterday.

Mitchell, who lost two acting gigs due to allegations made against him, gave his version of what happened in Mexico City during the incident in question in his interview on Power 105.

“To be honest I’m not 100 percent sure what the allegations themselves were, but I can tell you what happened. We were in pre-production and I went out with a co-worker of mine and she got drunk. Being the person that I am, I felt responsible to make sure she got home…we’re in Mexico City and we’re in a foreign land and we should stick together. This isn’t where I leave her. I made sure she got home and the next day it kind of all slapped me in my face,” Mitchell said.

“I felt like I was doing the right thing. The next day, they said they needed to talk to me about this activity and I told them my side of the story but it felt as if there is something that I missed,” continued the Superfly co-star.

When it comes to his firing from The Chi, Mitchell contrasts the story told by the show’s creator, Lena Waithe and Season 2 showrunner, Ayanna Floyd Davis.

According to reports, Mitchell’s girlfriend on The Chi, Tiffany Boone is one of several actresses who made complaints about the actor who played Eazy-E on Straight Outta Compton. Sources say Waithe didn’t do enough to protect her female cast members, but she vehemently states she yielded all the power she could to rectify the situation.

“Tiffany Boone left the show because she got a better job. She put in two seasons with us and she went on to get a better job. Anybody who knows Tiffany Boone knows that she is the epitome of a Black woman…if you try her, she will get you together, right then and there. I encourage people to be more like that. Had me and Tiffany ever had a situation in which she felt sexually harassed, she would have told me about myself in that moment,” said Mitchell.

Today In Hip Hop History: Ice Cube Dropped His ‘Death Certificate’ Album 27 Years Ago

O’Shea Jackson, better known to the world as Ice Cube, mad a lot of people mad when he was fed with the bs and released this scathing album, appropriately entitled Death Certificate 27 years ago on this date.

The album cover itself speaks volumes. A Caucasian corpse with a toe tag that reads “Uncle Sam” draped with the stars and stripes with the recently self made solo artist pledging allegiance is as anti-establishment as you can get. Not only had Ice Cube been freed from his situation with the legendary Niggaz Wit Attitudes, but he had also been released into a sea of information that would make his metamorphosis from a mere emcee and rhyme writer of a “gangsta” rap group to an unparalleled entertainer unlike anyone else. The LP’s insert is just as powerful as the cover, with Ice Cube and his Lench Mob crew doing the knowledge to the Nation Of Islam’s Final Call newspaper.

The album features melodic, yet truthful messages from the late Dr. Khalid Abdul Muhammad throughout the duration of the album. Songs like “I Wanna Kill Sam” and “Horny Little Devil” echo NOI sentiments, but that doesn’t take away from the surgical lyricism from the former NWA frontman coupled with production from Sir Jinx, the Boogiemen and Cube himself. Timeless gems like “Black Korea” and “A Bird In A Hand” tackles real life issues in the urban community and the scenarios he addressed still ail our society today, yet are significantly ignored by today’s artists.

CHECK OUT THE EXCLUSIVE THESOURCE.COM ICE CUBE ‘DEATH CERTIFICATE’ 25TH ANNIVERSARY INTERVIEW HERE

One of the most memorable tracks from Death Certificate is of course the infamous “No Vaseline” aimed at Eazy-E ,Dr. Dre, Ren Yella, and their financial arm Jerry Heller. In the song, Cube spits darts like, “..lookin like straight bozos/ I saw it comin’ that’s why I went solo/ and kept on stompin’/ while y’all motherfuckers moved straight outta Compton..” and went straight at Heller’s neck with rhymes like, “..it’s a case of divide and conquer/ ’cause you let a Jew break up my crew/ house nigga gotta run and hide/ yellin’ Compton, but you moved to Riverside..”. N.W.A. never recovered from Cube’s blow, which made this record the ultimate diss record of all time. Ice Cube’s continued success which is still evident today, is just the icing on the cake of how he “dropped four niggas, now he’s makin’ all the dough”.

The Source sends a supreme shout out to Cube, the Lench Mob(you too Kam), Dr. Khalid(RIP) and everyone else involved with this timeless classic!
