Epps' first on-screen appearance came in Vin Diesel's second directorial film, Strays in 1997. In 1999, Epps was then cast as Ice Cube's co-star in the sequel, Next Friday . This followed weeks of auditions, after Ice Cube attended a stand-up set Epps did, and then asked Epps to try out for the role of Day-Day Jones. [6] Later that year, Epps had a cameo in 3 Strikes , and supported Jamie Foxx in Bait .

In 2010, Epps also released a stand-up comedy special, Under Rated & Never Faded , and hosted the 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards .

Epps starred alongside Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston in the 2012 remake of Sparkle , in his first non-comedic role as the main antagonist, Satin, a stand-up comic by day, an evil and abusive drug kingpin by night, who is engaged in an affair with the titular character's sister. Epps' performance was well received by critics and audiences. In 2014, Epps landed the coveted role of Richard Pryor in a planned Pryor biopic to be directed by Lee Daniels; [7] [8] however, the project has remained in development hell.

Cole's second album Born Sinner . Mike Epps was also known in his hometown of Indianapolis as the CEO of Naptown Records.[ citation needed ] In 2006 he signed local artist Philthyphil.[ citation needed ] This artist had just been released from prison after serving three years for a drug indictment in which he was the suspected distributor of large amounts of narcotics.[ citation needed ] The record deal which was reportedly worth $175,000 was later terminated after Phillip "Philthyphil" White was charged with first-degree murder in Oakland, CA in 2007.

Epps has been criticized by disability campaigners for mocking physically and mentally disabled children in his stand-up act. [16]

On June 1, 2014, Epps purportedly assaulted fellow stand-up comedian LaVar Walker outside of the Uptown Comedy Club. It was stated Epps and two of his bodyguards did this in response to Walker making a parody video about Epps and comedian Kevin Hart. Epps allegedly struck him in the face and kicked him in the stomach and back, while one of the other two men threw the victim's cellphone and crushed his prescription glasses. Atlanta Police issued a warrant for Epps' arrest two days later on June 3. [17]

Around mid-2017, Epps received criticism for bringing a kangaroo onto the stage during one of his shows. Many noted the animal looked distressed, with Epps grabbing and holding it against its will. Epps later apologized, saying it was completely unscripted and that he would never hurt an animal. [18]

[19] [20] He was previously married to Mechelle McCain, whom he married in July 2006. The pair lived in Beverly Hills, California together until they divorced in September 2017. [21]

In a 2019 GQ interview, Epps denied the long-standing rumor that he is related to fellow actor Omar Epps, saying, "Are Mike Epps and Omar Epps related? No, I think we got the same master, though." [22]
