Everyone knows August is when summer slows down. The temperature is checking in at between unbearable and the surface of Venus, everyone but you is on vacation, and all anyone really wants to do is crank on the air conditioner and never leave. Lucky for you, MTV has another great — actually three great reasons — to embrace the AC and chill this August:
Wild ‘N Out
Nick Cannon makes his triumphant return to MTV’s Thursday night lineup with the 8th season of Wild ‘N Out. The show brings the best of hip-hop and comedy together on one stage and is still the premier destination for hungry young comedians looking to make a name for themselves by teaming up and spitting hilarious one-liners while trying to rack up points. To warm you up for the boldest season of Wild ‘N Out yet, Cannon is dropping an all new mixtape on August 2 with DJ Drama — Wild Style Vol. 1 — featuring Future, Too $hort, Jeremih, Migos, OG Maco and more.
The tape — available as a free download on Datpiff — also includes appearances by show veterans DC Young Fly, Hitman Holla, Conceited, Traphik, Emmanuel Hudson and JackThriller.
Joking Off brings some of the best standup comedy duos onto the same stage — including Desus and Mero, hosts of hit podcast Bodega Boys — to riff on memes, Tweets, hashtags, and viral videos. The pairs have to rack up laughs and points or else get booted from the competition by host DeRay Davis. This is comedy for the social media age, where no Instagram post, goofy selfie, or embarrassing Snapchat picture is safe from getting clowned on.
Kingin’ with Tyga
If you want a glimpse into the lavish life of a guy who knows how to enjoy the finer things like Lambos, yachts, and, uh, panthers, then look no further than Kingin’ with Tyga. The show follows the platinum artist around the world on tour as well as documents his unbelievably baller life at home in Los Angeles. Smalltime isn’t in Tyga’s vocabulary, so you can be sure this season will be as over-the-top as it gets. The Young Money crew veteran makes his return to MTV on Thursday, August 3rd with the season 2 premiere of Kingin’ with Tyga.
The mercury is rising all over the country and you’re tired of sweating so kick back this Thursday, crank the AC to somewhere below “arctic blast,” and tune-in to MTV’s new lineup starting 10:00 PM EST/9:00 PM CST.
