10 Things Vince McMahon Wants You To Forget About John Cena

7. He Made A Rap Album

Speaking of rap albums, of course John Cena has made one himself. This was way back in 2005 and Tha Trademarc, Cena’s cousin, also got in on the fun. At the time, Cena was the “ruck fules” hip-hop thug who spit rhymes in the ring, so it made sense for him to log some time in the studio. Forget the horrible album cover with the comic sans font, and forget the cheesy music videos that Cena’s team somehow had a budget for. The weirdest part was that the album actually did well.

It landed at the coveted number 10 spot on the US Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and number 15 on the US Billboard 200. Whether it was curiosity or not, the same level of “ingenious” lyricism that appeared on his theme song (“I got my soul straight/I brush your mouth like Colgate” is just one of many gems) was featured on this album, plus plenty of F-bombs. (You know, for the street cred.)
