Wild ‘N Out
In July 2013, Bean became a recurring cast member on Wild ‘N Out, a sketch comedy and improv game show series hosted by Nick Cannon. It runs on MTV, VH1, and MTV2. When asked how it is on the show with Nick Cannon, Chico joked: ”It’s great … to be around somebody who has that much money and doesn’t gonna really share much with you … that’s pretty cool.”
Also in 2013, Bean hosted the TV series Guy Court.
In 2016, Chico performed a song called “Mouth and Lip Service” that appeared on the Wild ‘N Out: Wildstyle Vol. 1.

In October 2020, Anthony with Karlous Miller and DC Young Fly appeared on The Breakfast Club, a podcast hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne tha God.
”I hope that there is some beacon of hope to where it could come back the right way, but for us, when we say it’s over, it just feels like it culminated,” Chico said in the podcast whether he would return to the Wild ‘N Out without Cannon. Bean added: ”If Nick isn’t the host, then we ain’t even thinking about going back over there.”
Note – On July 14, 2020, Nick Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS, the MTV parent company, who owns the rights to his show.
”I wanted [it] to be given to me from the O.G. It’s his shit. It’s not corporate shit. Corporate didn’t hire me. Nick hired me,” — responded DC Young Fly on The Breakfast Club, after he was asked whether he’d take the hosting position of Wild ‘N Out. DC Young Fly also said: ”So, it’d be a backstab for me … I wanna be part of a family, and Wild ‘N Out was family.”
