John Cena's Freestyle Raps
A few weeks back I noted that The Sun (UK) was accepting questions from fans for an upcoming John Cena interview. The interview has completed, and The Sun has posted it online. Here's a portion of the interview, courtesy of The Sun:
John, your rapper character has really taken off but why don't you actually rap anymore?
In the beginning a lot of my raps were completely freestyle and that's why I got away with so much on TV. I got to go for the throats in the way I wanted. But as of late they've really been cracking down thanks to the Janet Jackson incident. So I've had to scale back on my TV raps, because I have to run it by so many people and I'd rather be able to rap the way I want to than put something out there that's just watered down and stupid. I have to go through 150 committees and if one person says "I don't like this" then I have to go back and do it again. By the end of the night I'd just be generic and cookie-cutter. So I said: "Forget it. I won't rap unless you're going to let me be me. But when you don't I'm still going to go out there and speak from the heart and be hip hop at the same time."
It is frustrating but it means the fans know that whenever you see John Cena rap on Smackdown or a PPV then it's going to be something special.
