Nick Cannon’s first album was a straightforward rap record, and his following two LPs contained only stand-up comedy. His latest, provocatively titled White People Party Music, is filled with tongue-in-cheek EDM and includes everything from a Fatman Scoop-assisted club track dissing people who request songs because it’s their birthday to a self-satirical Pitbull song in which the two artists profess their love for a woman named America. It’s a spot-on parody, of course, but it’s also a loving tribute, and a few days after its release, Cannon – backstage at a taping of America’s Got Talent wearing a three-piece suit and leopard-print socks – talked to Rolling Stone about his reasons for making the album, his wife Mariah Carey’s favorite song on it and how fond is he of the culture he’s sending up.
