It’s not an expected topic of discussion, seeing as there are similarities between Cena’s old Doctor of Thugamonics gimmick and The Acclaimed MC’s current schtick. It is, however, a little unexpected how emphatically the Peacemaker star puts over Platinum Max.
Asked if he could take Caster in a rap battle, the 16 time WWE World champ says:
“I know of Max Caster very well, and the answer is no.
“He’s extremely gifted. I remember hearing him for the first time, and asking a good friend of mine to please pass his information on to me. I immediately checked out his raps, out of the blue, and I saw what he was doing was spectacular. I wish him all the best of luck, but I can’t give him any advice because he’s punching far above my weight class. He is very gifted. He’s gifted enough to rhyme to the beat live, where I kind of did my stuff a cappella to let the punchlines sink in.
“Hip-hop constantly evolves, and it constantly moves forward, and he is the better version of what I did. He’s really, really spectacular. As long as he keeps everything in realistic perspective, he shows great potential.”
That’s a big rub from a big star. How long until we hear it referenced after “Yo. Listen.” on a future episode of Dynamite or Rampage?
