Veteran underground rapper Copywrite has called out WWE Legend John Cena with a new diss track.
Roundhouse Music Co. announced this week that Columbus, OH rapper Copywrite has a new song on his “The High Exhaulted II” album that calls out the former WWE Champion. The song accuses him of stealing lyrics from Copywrite and from his WWE performances.
On his new album The High Exhaulted II, buzzing Columbus rapper Copywrite has shared news of an intriguing situation that occurred with WWE wrestler John Cena. On track 3, titled “Spoiler Alert / Have U Cena?”, he reveals that Cena stole his lyrics for his own music and WWE performances in a barrage of bars that dissect the fiasco with the wrestler. As Copy says, he first caught Cena stealing lyrics for his WWE act as rapper on YouTube- “I got the news from a fan out the blue, at first I think was the truth/ til he sent the YouTube link as the proof/ now I’m tryna think what to do”. Embarrassingly for Cena, it was in fact glaringly obvious to the veteran rapper that his lyrics had been ripped off without permission, as Copy rhymes “bit it, it was so apparent”. After a beat switch, the second half of the track ups the ante even further and finds him coming at Cena with sharply-crafted, fierce bars. Lines like “lies, what your rap career is based on” and “right now, John loves to play emcee” expose Cena’s biting vehemently, driving home the point that he used many lifted lyrics to formulate his rap act for WWE.
In a 2014 appearance on the popular wrestling podcast “Get Up On This”, Chris Hero, aka Kassius Ohno, commented that he learned about Copywrite from his conversations with Cena. On an episode of “The JENK Podcast” hosted by Jensen Karp, he said he’d also learned of Copywrite from Cena, who admitted to being a “huge fan” of Copywrite.
In an interview, Cena said:
I tried to get a top 5 [list of rappers from Cena] and was given a top 4 consisting of Eminem, Jay-Z, Jadakiss, and Copywrite.
Cena’s Dr. of Thuganomics gimmick originally ran from mid-2002 through late 2004/early 2005. Before WWE Legend John Cena was being brought back at WrestleMania 35 in 2019. It was for an in-ring segment with Elias when the F-U appeared to give Elias his comeuppance.
