Soultrain.com recently sat down with R-Truth to discuss his life in professional wrestling, as well as his love for music and rapping. Here are a few highlights, courtesy of Soultrain.com
SoulTrain.com: For those who might not know, you’ve got a lot more going for you beyond what you display in a WWE ring. You’re also an accomplished hip-hop recording artist, producer, and dancer. So tell us how your dance background helped your in-ring posture.
R-Truth: My background in dance pretty much sets the pace for me, and I don’t have to explain what it is because it’s real. You can’t make that up. You can try to create it through character, but that’s not the realest thing. It’s just in me. My dance background helped me tremendously. Dancing is like second nature to me.
SoulTrain.com: Speaking of production, do you think you express yourself better when you’re in the studio producing a track or when you’re in the ring competing in a match?
R-Truth: I’ve been wrestling and making music for a long time. I’ve been around the right people in the entertainment business who know what it takes in several different areas to make things happen. I’m passionate about both of them, so I try to be an artist when I’m doing both. In many ways professional wrestling is a dance. I guess it depends on how you look at it. When I’m in the ring I’ve got a million people watching me weekly, looking for me to present something memorable to them. I try to do that in the studio as well.
