Nick Cannon has four siblings: Gabriel, Reuben, Javen, and Caleb.

To say that Nick grew up with a big family would be an understatement. Per The Celebritist, Nick is the oldest of five. His siblings are Gabriel, Reuben, Javen, and Caleb.

According to The Things, the brothers were surrounded by gang violence growing up but found refuge in the church. As a result, the brothers grew fond of music and performing.

King Cannon has become a fan-favorite on ‘Wild ‘n Out.’

The key to becoming a fan-favorite on Wild ‘N Out is to come through with hilarious jokes and a fun personality. Javen had a rough start on the show after getting roasted for his shoes, but he has quickly become one of the funniest comedians on the show.

One of King’s most talked-about moments on the show comes from his epic “Wild Style” battle in Season 15. Not only did he roast battle rappers Conceited and HitMan Holla, but he also threw shade at Rip Michaels for him only having a career because of Nick.

King also won fans over after facing Charlie Clips during their infamous Lil Fizz vs. Omarion face-off skit.
