Nick Cannon’s Wild N Out has been on the airwaves for several years, bringing up and coming talent to its stages such as John “DC Young Fly” Whitfield, who has been a recurring guest on the show the last seven years.
DC Young Fly is considered by many to be the best roaster on the show, but there’s more to him than just that. First of all, he is part of the comedy team of 85 South, which also features comedians Karlous Miller and Chico Bean.
The trio has become very popular on the comedy circuit, and several clips from their comedy show have gone viral across the internet.
The multi-talented performer is also an up and coming rap artist and dancer who has released a few singles as well. A month ago, he released a video for his single “24 Hours,” which showcased his dancing and rapping skills.
The Atlanta native also may be taking a step forward entering into the world of acting, having roles in the BET series and movies “Tales,” “The Quad,” and the “New Edition Movie.”
He also had a small role in the Chris Brown movie “Almost Christmas.”
This young artist is a star on the rise in both his career and personal life. He and his long-term girlfriend, Jacky, are expecting their second child soon as announced via Instagram back in March.
“With so much craziness happening in the world, here is my little chunk of peace & happiness. God chose me again & I’m so grateful to bring another life into this world.”
One thing is certain, DC Young Fly is ready to take over the entertainment world but is the world ready for DC Young Fly? They better be.
