Nick Cannon Speaks on SideStepping the Gang Banging Lifestyle

In Nick's recent interview with VladTV, where he dispels the notion that in spite out gaining celebrity from a young age that he is he is out of touch or "in a bubble" when it comes to those from less well-to-do communities. "I'm on the ground level," he said, "I do so much that people don't know about...to make sure these young people have opportunities." From there, Nick describes his career arc, from growing up in a rough neighborhood, to breaking onto Nickelodeon, to making money and gratifying his ego, and now to giving back to his community. He also states that while a lot of celebrities claim gangs, it's a source of insecurity and that he "never wants to glorify it."
