Before he was spitting rhymes on WWE television, R-Truth was honing his skills with some of the top rappers in the world.
2Pac is unquestionably one of the greatest rappers of all-time, but even Pac needed to get some bars off R-Truth.
Appearing on New Day: Feel The Power, R-Truth recalled the infamous photo of him alongside 2Pac.
"We went from Atlanta to Virginia to DC, it was a thing called Jack The Rapper convention. That's where rappers went to...it was demo tapes, songs were on reels. I had my box of demo tapes. Tupac had just done Juice when I met him, so he was 'hot hot' at the time. I ran out of money and was on a budget. Pac, Eazy, Sinbad, Tracie Spencer. I was the show opener for a lot of people that came through North and South Carolina and you made friends. Just passing through and see him at every Jack The Rapper convention and every promotion we were doing. Bumping arms with one of the greatest icons ever. A voice of the music industry, not only the music industry but the acting world too. Just to see him from afar, he had the energy that attracted people to him. I would watch him and be in awe of somebody coming from where he comes from and has the mind that he has and the individual he was. He was a good-hearted dude," he said.
R-Truth may not have made it as big as 2Pac in the rap world, but 2Pac never made it as big as R-Truth in the wrestling world. Call it a wash.
