VIBE Exclusive: Is Nick Cannon Resurrecting ‘Soul Train’?


| May 10, 2013 - 6:23 pm

Nick Cannon Presents Wild ‘n Out isn’t the only cult classic that Cannon plans to give new life.

Trusted sources tell VIBE that Nick Cannon is rubbing his jaws of life over the Soul Train franchise, as he negotiates a multi-million dollar deal for complete rights to the urban music variety show.

The source says that deal is still in the works, however, the NCredible CEO plans to revive the show in a modern-day format, with the modern stars like The-Dream or Meek Mill commanding Soul Train dance lines.

With Cannon’s ties to TeenNick, MTV and NBC—where he signed a production deal in November—it’ll be interesting to see where Soul Train finds its new home. —John Kennedy
