Wild N’ On Campus

While it’s unfortunate Wild N’ Out isn’t performing on Elmhurst College’s campus (yet), that doesn’t mean we can’t experience their college appearances for an hour road trip over break. Cast members B Daht, Darren Brand, Nate Jackson, and RIP Michaels will be leading the MTV show’s improvisational games and acclaimed WildStyle rap battles with Northern Illinois University students.
