Nick Cannon Puts Cory Gunz Under His Wing, Overseeing Debut & Reality Show

Former XXL alum Cory Gunz continues to stack up the cosigns. Known for getting props from everyone from Jay-Z to Lil Wayne, the son of Bronx rap vet Peter Gunz, is now working with Mr. Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon.

MTV News reports that the young upstart is currently working on a reality television show with Cannon, among other projects. “It’s about bringing hip-hop back and taking it all the way to the top,” Cannon told about the project.

Canon will also be overseeing the 22-year-old MC’s highly anticipated debut album, as well as several other ventures. “Me and Nick got a couple things under wraps,” Gunz revealed. “We’re trying to make a couple big things happen. We’re trying to do things real elegant for ’09, ’10 and beyond. We caught a couple projects in the works. Nick has been real instrumental behind the scenes on the project. And he’s opened a couple of doors for me. Nick is my big brother now, for real. He’s opening doors for me, giving me opportunities in and out of the studio. It’s about to be ugly.”

As previously reported, Cory’s next project will be his long delayed Gangsta Grillz mixtape with DJ Drama. Titled, Heir to the Throne, the tape is done and will be the streets shortly. –Max G
