Nick Cannon readies the release of his new mixtape, The Gospel of Ike Turn Up: My Side Of The Story, set to be released exclusively on livemixtapes.com tomorrow (Nov. 16). To heighten noise around the project, he releases a new track off the tape featuring K. Michelle entitled “Baby On The Way.”
The song seems to be (loosely?) inspired by his current situation: he’s expecting a baby with 28-year-old Brittany Bell, former beauty pageant contestant and Cannon’s on and off’ girlfriend since 2015.
On the song, K. Michelle takes the hook (which features an interpolation of Jodeci’s “Forever My Lady”) while Cannon takes on the verses about becoming a father (for the third time, if this is autobiographical).
“Uh oh what we gon’ do / My baby mama don’t know about you / But I love you, ever since we met in 2002,” he raps on the first verse.
Could he be referencing his ex-wife Mariah Carey as the “baby mama,” with whom he shares 5-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe?
