Nick Cannon Pays Homage to Grandfather Who Passed Away (Audio Tribute)

It is with a heavy heart that I report that Nick’s grandfather James Cannon, Sr. has passed on to glory.

Nick paid homage to his grandfather via a series of Instagram posts on Sunday.

Will forever cherish this moment!

Nick was very close with his grandfather and stated several times he was very influential in him becoming the man he is today.

For those of you who listened to Nick’s radio show “Rollin’ with Nick Cannon” you will remember that he spoke to his grandfather on air several times during shows run.

Check out a few of the sweet and funny moments Nick and Grandpa ‘Pop’ Cannon had on “Rollin’ with Nick Cannon”.

Rest In Paradise, Grandpa Cannon.
