R-Truth has other things to do. Wrestling is a unique business and that is not always good. While wrestlers can be stars while in the ring, there comes a point where they have to hang their boots. The problem is that wrestlers often retire when they are in their thirties and forties and that leaves them long before retirement. However, some fighters have a backup plan and one is advancing in his other career.
While there are so many fighters in WWE, very few of them have the comedy skills of R-Truth. It has turned a simple idea into one of the longest holdings in WWE and that is a great achievement. While R-Truth, 48, has a wrestling resume, he is also an accomplished hip hop artist, who is a fairly strong career in his own right. That secondary career has recently received a boost.
R-Truth has released a new music video for a song called Set It Off. The video was released on the YouTube channel WorldStarHipHop, which is the same channel that featured Enzo Amore's hip hop songs. R-Truth has been a hip hop artist for over twenty years and has performed his own musical theme for most of his WWE career. WWE also showed a clip of the song in the preview of the upcoming WWE episode 24 of R-Truth, which will premiere on February 27 after Super ShowDown.
The song is catchy. Watch the WWE video and preview:

Opinion: It's great to see someone have a career outside of wrestling and it helps that R-Truth has dedicated so much time and effort. This is not the kind of thing anyone can do and it helps that R-Truth is a talented artist outside of hip hop in general. Hopefully your career will be a success, since you can only fight for so long, but something like this could continue for much longer.
