Nick Cannon is looking to bury the hatchet with Eminem.
Despite their history of beef, Nick said he wants to sit down with the Detroit rapper and attempt to resolve their issues. During an interview with Fat Joe on Instagram Live, Nick extended an olive branch to Slim Shady.
“One day, hopefully dude and I will get an opportunity to sit down ’cause I do respect his ability,” said Nick.
He has even spoken with Em’s close friend Royce da 5’9″ about making it happen. “We tryna really get it poppin’ ’cause I think at the end, two men need to have that conversation.”

Nick also revisited his idea of having Em appear on “Wild ‘N Out.” “We’ll set up an exclusive ‘Wild ‘N Out’ Detroit,” said Nick, adding, “We got to get to the bag, Joe.”
Fat Joe even offered to help them squash their beef. “Fat Joe’s gonna try to be the mediator, be the big man of this and try to get y’all together,” he said.
The two have been at odds for over a decade. Last year, Nick dropped a series of diss tracks aimed at Marshall Mathers including the Suge Knight-assisted “The Invitation,” “Pray for Him,” and “Canceled: Invitation,” on which he calls Em the “KKK of this generation.”
Prior to that, Em reignited the feud when he dissed Nick and his ex-wife Mariah Carey on Fat Joe’s Family Ties track “Lord Above.” The “Rap God” responded to the “Wild ‘N Out” host on Twitter, but never issued a response record.
While a sit-down with Eminem may be up in the air, Nick recently sat down with Kanye West for a two-part interview where they discussed his bid for president, religion, and his controversial comments about slavery.
