5 Nick Cannon’s Siblings Ranked Oldest to Youngest

Nick Cannon is one of those entertainers that has been a staple in American homes for decades. For so many of us, we grew up watching Nick Cannon’s rise to fame as a teenager on the All That show, starring in the emotionally gripping marching band film Drumline, or as the creator and host of his wildly successful MTV improv comedy show Wild n’ Out.

Beyond his success as an actor, he’s a man of many talents and proved himself to be quite a successful business entrepreneur, and successful enough to capture the attention of the Queen Diva herself, Mariah Carey! 

Joined by his four siblings, the Cannon ensemble has supported and collaborated through Nick’s successes and struggles. Information on the family is conflicting and clouded in some mystery, but that won’t stop us from doing our best to do a deep dive into Nick and his brothers while we rank the Cannon siblings from oldest to youngest!

5. Reuben Cannon (Unknown)

Age (as of July 20, 2022): N/A
Born: California
Occupation: Musician
Known For: Brother of Nick Cannon

Reuben Cannon is the oldest brother amongst the Cannon siblings, but his exact date of birth is unknown. Compared to NickReuben’s image is more mysterious. 

We know that as of 2021, he’s been focused on a solo music career and has released a few songs as an independent artist. His mixtape, “Play My S—t,” has over 4 million plays on SoundCloud. People appreciate his unapologetically straightforward message instructing them on what he wants them to do! 

Did You Know?

Reuben’s first venture into music came as a young boy when he, Nick, and Gabriel formed their group 3YB, which stood for Three Young Brothers. They might not have become the next Boyz To Men, but the music was a retreat from the streets and gang violence they grew up in. 

Reuben has a YouTube channel where you can listen to his catalog, including “Play My S—T,” which was released in 2018.

4. Nick Cannon (October 8, 1980 – Present)

Born: San Diego, California
Occupation: Host, Rapper, Actor, Comedian
Known For: Wild n’ Out

For any American that subscribed to cable television over the last two decades, there’s almost no chance you haven’t seen Nick Cannon flood the airwaves through his pursuits in acting, television hosting, music, and comedy. He’s a staple in entertainment and felt the love and the controversies attached to life in the petri dish we call celebrity culture. 

Cannon’s big break came on the Nickelodeon show All That – a sketch comedy series that first aired on April 16, 1994, and ended on October 22, 2005. The show was a massive success and was the career springboard for other names you might recognize, like Amanda Bynes, Kenan Thompson, and Jamie Lynn Spears. 

Before his television career, Cannon was raised in the Lincoln Park Bay Vista Housing Projects of Southeast San Diego, which was notorious as a heavily gang-occupied territory. He wasn’t immune to the allure of the lifestyle and became a member of the “Lincoln Park Bloods.” He credited the death of a close friend as the reason he left the life and focused on his academics and athletics, running track and field and becoming President of the African Student Coalition of Monte Vista High School. 

Nick took his short-lived experience as a member of his brotherly group, 3YB, and joined the rap group “Da G4 Dope Bomb Squad.” The name is a little cheesy, but it was enough to capture the attention of an actor/rapper living legend named Will Smith. After founding his record label in 2005, his music career slowly fizzled out in favor of his blossoming acting career. 

He starred in DrumlineLove Don’t Cost a Thing, and Roll Bounce, proving he could hold his own as a leading man in films that, over the years, have evolved into fan favorites, especially in the case of Drumline, which sits at an 82% on Rotten Tomatoes. Nick Cannon epitomizes what it means to be a go-getter. He flexed his entrepreneurial spirit as the creator and co-host of the TeenNick original series The Nightlife, TeenNick Top 10, and NBC’s Caught on Camera with Nick Cannon. However, no one would contest that his crowning achievement has been Wild n’ Out. 

Wild n’ Out premiered on July 28, 2005, on MTV. It has since become one of the network’s best shows through its ability to weather generational changes in music and culture. The sketch comedy show is on its 17th season and boasts a 313-episode repertoire. As of 2019, Nick Cannon’s enterprise has expanded to VH1 and shows no signs of slowing. 

Nick’s high-profile dating history and romantic escapades are reflective of his high-profile career. He has had eight children with five women and briefly dated names like Kim Kardashian, Christina Milian, Jessica White, and Selita Ebanks. But in 2008, he married acclaimed singer/songwriter Mariah Carey. In 2011, they welcomed fraternal twins –  Moroccan and Monroe. Their marriage lasted six years, but they divorced in 2016. As of 2022, Cannon announced he is expecting his ninth child in October with DJ Abby De La Rosa. 

Did You Know?

Nick came under fire in 2020 for racist and anti-Semitic comments he had made, as well as for expressing admiration for Louis Farrakhan – a controversial figure among the black and Jewish communities. The fallout was catastrophic, and companies like ViacomCBS and several endorsement partners cut ties with Cannon over his hateful speech. Cannon apologized, stating: “I want to assure my Jewish friends, new and old, that this is only the beginning of my education.” 

Thankfully, VIacomCBS rekindled their relationship with Cannon and brought him back as host of Wild n’ Out after they felt he expressed remorse for his comments.
