LOS ANGELES, CA Monday Dec.8.2003 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Sure, Nick Cannon has a hit song, but he is more than an artist who writes his own stuff. That in itself isn't too bad. Most new artists don't get the chance to record their own songs until they've proven themselves. Nick has a head-up on the competition.

Growing up in San Diego, Nick learned to play several instruments that were given to him by his grandfather. He had developed his performing skills by age 8 through stand-up and recording with the duo Da Bom Squad. He moved to Hollywood at age 16 and has been in numerous movies and produced his own show for Nickelodeon.

Besides MTV, Nick can currently be seen on HBO as Devon Miles in the theater hit "Drumline."
