R-Truth Talks The Miz’s Rap Skills, How John Cena Inspired The ‘U Suck’ Remix
The latest episode of WWE’s Break It Down has R-Truth discussing his Awesome Truth theme song “U Suck.” The song was a remix to “What’s Up?” and it has an entertaining origin story involving The Miz and Joh Cena.
“I remember [Miz] always brings this up. He came to me and was like, ‘Hey Truth, I wrote a rap. I want you to check it out.’ I was like, ‘You wrote a rap? OK, cool. I’ll check it out.’ He started rapping this thing to me, man, and I don’t even know if he was supposed to be on beat or not be on beat but he was rapping and I couldn’t tell him it was bad. So, I just didn’t say nothing.
“Before I could say anything, John Cena out of nowhere in the back heard the rap and yells out, ‘Tell the truth, Truth. Tell him it sucks.’ That was why we came up with that song, the ‘What’s Up?’ remix to ‘U Suck.’ One of the reasons was because Cena yelled out that it sucked. Miz always says I buried his rap, I didn’t bury it. He gave forth a damn good effort.”
