The Gospel of Ike Turn Up, My Side of the Story

Stream Nick Cannon’s Mixtape ‘The Gospel of Ike Turn Up’

Nick Cannon bares his soul on his new mixtape The Gospel of Ike Turn Up, My Side of the Story, out today (Nov. 16).

The 17-track effort includes appearances from Jeremih, Quavo, Gucci Mane, Keke Palmer, K. Michelle, and his ex-girlfriend Christina Milian, plus production from Zaytoven, Bobby Kritical, and Jahaan Sweet. It also allows the Ncredible MC a chance to open up about his life story in a vulnerable way.

“The names and faces have been changed to protect the innocent,” he says on the intro. “But I gotta get this shit out. At least that’s what my doctor said. It’s killing me inside. I pray y’all can handle it. It’s my truth.”

Even though Nick vows to change names, he drops a few references to some famous bombshells from his past, including Kim Kardashian, Nicole Scherzinger, Selita Ebanks, Meagan Good, Brandy, and ex-wife Mariah Carey — and that’s just on the intro.

The Gospel of Ike Turn Up also features influences from the ’90s. “That’s what’s inside me,” Nick recently told Rap-Up. “I’m a student of that. That’s when music felt good and was fun and that’s what I do well.”
