MVP Says He Nearly Formed A Hip-Hop Supergroup In WWE
Former WWE Superstar MVP appeared on MLW Radio this week and revealed that he had planned to create a hip-hop supergroup with John Cena. You can hear the full interview at MLW.com or on iTunes.
“When I got to Raw, I had asked Cena about making music and we discussed it. When we were on the bus together or the hotel lobby and Cena would break out some instrumentals, we’d start freestyling together and it was really a trip watching all these people say, ‘I didn’t know you could do that!’ My cousin ended up producing this really cool beat and Cena came by my house when Raw was in town. He recorded a verse on it. I recorded a verse and my idea was for the three guys on the roster who actually rap their own theme music [MVP, Cena and R-Truth], let the three of us all get together on this one track. Kevin Dunn said it was really good and that he really liked it.”
“I approached Vince with the idea and Vince wasn’t interested. What I saw was, if you take me, Cena and R-Truth and put us all together, even for a little while and let us run like a little bit of a clique, I thought it would be a lot of fun and that the crowd would really get off on it. Especially if we weren’t all on the same show. If I’m on Smackdown and those guys are on Raw, but something goes down and the music plays and here I come running out or I’m in trouble on Smackdown and those guys come running out, almost like a really cool urban hip hop stable, John [Cena] being the leader . . . the song would have been a platinum single.”
