MTV's Wild 'N Out is a great showcase for the on-the-spot lyricism and off-the-cuff humor that makes for some of the best--and worst--freestyle moments. Nick Cannon and the crew have always brought out the best in hip-hop for some of those brilliant moments, and it's easy to see why rappers readily welcome the challenge.

This week, Waka Flocka Flame heads up the Platinum Squad and rocks with Nick Cannon & Co. on the always-popular Wild 'N Out staple "Remix." The battle leads to the ultimate showdown between Wacka and Nick Cannon; they go head to head in the “Wildstyle” final round. Waka clowning Nick's shoes is a highlight--and he breaks a Wild 'N Out Girl's heart when he tells her he's married. Catch MTV’s Throwdown Thursdays with Wild 'N Out tonight, August 18, at 10/9c!

So in the spirit of hip-hop and hijinks, here are our favorite 10 rapper moments from MTV's Wild 'N Out.

  • Nelly

    Nelly showed that if you've got the right flow, you can make anything sound cool in a freestyle.

  • Tech N9ne

    The Platinum Squad got fierce on this one--and there's no way you want to battle anyone affiliated with the Strange Music guru.

  • Tyga

    Tyga's appearances are always welcomed--and the versatile rap star is Throwdown Thursday fam. Check out Kingin' With Tyga.

  • Iggy Azalea

    Iggy had to answer the tough questions. And we all know we wanted to ask it, too.

  • A$AP Rocky

    Rocky has to be one of the most clever guys in hip-hop--so you would expect him to thrive on a show that features wit and rhymes.

  • Kanye West

    Who says Kanye has no sense of humor? Yeezus proved that he still can appreciate a good snap with the rest of us.

  • Rick Ross

    The Bawse is always a funny guy--and the Miami rap superstar showcased all of his skills on the show.

  • Asher Roth

    It's been a while since he "loved college"--but he got a hilarious dig in--all the while looking like a 70s singer-songwriter.

  • Snoop Dogg

    Snoop D-O-Double-G is a veteran and he shows why; the Long Beach O.G. is still good for a few bars and a few punchlines.

  • A$AP Ferg

    Ferg led the Platinum Squad in one of the most memorable rounds on the show. Check out that last punchline!
