Mack Wilds Performs ‘Own It’ on ‘Arsenio’

Arsenio and Mack Wilds

Fresh off his first Grammy nomination, Mack Wilds performed his single “Own It” on “Arsenio.” The actor-turned-rapper was in Virginia when he heard that he was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

“[The label] sent a picture and I damn near wrecked the hotel room,” he said.

He plans to take his father and grandfather to the ceremony in January.

After starring in the “Roc Boys” video, he and Jay Z developed a tight bond. “He’s always kinda kept me under the wing like a nephew,” said Mack, who shared Jay’s advice. “Never ask for no handouts. Prove what you can do and then the people who can give you handouts will be more willing to.”
