Few people can boast that they took their skills as a champion underground battle rap emcee, catapulted their notoriety as a gif to the world virtually, secured himself into the heart of pop culture as a comedian on the longest-running show in the history of MTV and then secured his own TV show.
But Conceited can.
Brooklyn’s own Conceited (whose real name is Reggie Sergile) has been a cast member of Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out for 9 seasons, most noted for his signature ‘Cut the Beat’ during the ‘Wildstyle’ round that combines freestyle rapping with jokes. He cuts the beat because in the battle rap culture, where he made his name before the show, he rhymed acapella.
Now in addition to his ensemble work, he has been pegged to be the host of the new show, Sneaker Wars.
An online digital show, the game show series combines the ingenuity of the Food Network’s Chopped or Beat Bobby Flay with the fashion-forward creativity of Project Runway.
On the show, two sneaker customizers go head-to-head to see who can make the most fire kick using the secret material or accent, within the time perimeters, and with the most creativity.
You can catch the show on the Wild ‘N Out YouTube channel every Tuesday.
Conceited is a host and a judge and two of his co-judges are influencer and sneaker designer Sean Wotherspoon and Brittney Elena, NBA correspondent and pop culture fly girl.
The winner of Sneaker Wars gets a special ‘Sneak Awards’ trophy, basically stating that their skills are better than ever… making them like the “Iron Chef of Sneaks.”
Conceited proves over and over again that battle rap can propel you into your glory. One time for real rap!
