VH1 announced today that its super series Wild ‘N Out will air its 300th episode on Tuesday, February 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on VH1. Fans can catch all-new episodes every Tuesday and Wednesday night after the debut. The news follows the series’ recent nomination for an NAACP Image Award.
In celebration of the new season, Wild ‘N Out will team up with Super League Gaming for three weeks, beginning Tuesday, February 22 at 9 p.m. ET, to broadcast live streams demonstrating an immersive metaverse experience. The live broadcasts will present a new theme and challenge each week within Minehut, Super League’s wildly popular Minecraft community, where players can freestyle rap, share their thoughts on the new Wild ‘N Out episodes, and even diss resident Metaverse Remix hosts Nick Cannon and Justina Valentine, all through the Minehut Lobby in-game chat.
