Hit Row member Top Dolla made the news frequently thanks to his numerous diss tracks and also his beef with the Young Bucks. He certainly had a lot of potential after being called up to the main roster. It seems he also clarified Jinder Mahal’s rap song.
During this year’s edition of the WWE Draft, Hit Row was called up to the WWE main roster, which certainly surprised many fans. The faction was currently part of Friday Night Smackdown and finally made their debut last month.
Unfortunately, B-Fab from Hit Row was let go a couple of weeks ago. However, it didn’t stop there as the company decided to release the remaining Hit Row members last week as well.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Top Dolla talked about his WWE release. Dolla also made it clear that the rap song he wrote on Jinder Mahal had nothing to do with his release.
People want to bring up the fact about the song that I released for Jinder and Shanky on Twitter that people got mad about. But Jinder Mahal himself not only loved the song but said, and I have the proof of it, that I said nothing wrong in the song. The whole point of it was that we were in a feud together. We were trying to get more juice in the feud. Me and Jinder are cool, that was the whole point of it. When people are like, ‘oh the beat he used was insensitive.’ The beat I used is called, ‘Beware,’ by Punjabi MC, which is the most famous Indian sample in the history of hip-hop.
And when I picked the beat, Jinder Mahal was sitting right next to me in the locker room when we formulated the plan to do this. So for people to be upset with me and think that’s a reason we got fired is ridiculous. Because Jinder himself went and talked to them and was like, ‘no, it was not like that, we planned this out together.’”
WWE is hell-bent on releasing as many Superstars as they can and from the looks of it, it has now become a regular occurrence. We will have to wait and see who they will release next as hardly anyone is safe now.
