Complex Presents: 12 Rapper World Records Guinness Needs To Recognize
Complex Blog compiled this list for you:
If you weren’t in Indianapolis this weekend and/or don’t keep up with innovations in off-the-dome hip-hop, a dude named M-Eighty freestyled for more than nine hours and fifteen minutes on Saturday, with observers from Guinness World Records on hand to help verify the proceedings. If the 555 minutes of rapping about what people in the audience were wearing holds up, then M-Eighty replaces Supernatural as the officially sanctioned Longest Freestyle Ever record holder (Supernat set the record in 2006 by inducing narcolespy for just over nine hours).
That’s all well and good, and we congratulate dude’s seemingly indefatigable ability to rhyme one-syllable words together, but it made us realize that the existing rap-related world records just aren’t that exciting. Longest freestyle? Fastest rap? Why not acknowledge achievements that have really done something to change the world we live in? That’s why we took it upon ourselves to make our OWN list of world records. This is for you, hip-hop!
