When RAP music is “2 fast 2 furious”

Hello music listeners,

Of course i had to do an article to make a tribute to the RAP music. Indeniably it is one of the most influencial music nowadays. Real Rap is more than the popular songs we listen everywhere.

Real Rap is about expressing one’s opinion but also about delivering positive messages. I wasn’t surprised to learn that former president Obama favourite music of 2015 was “How much a dollar cust” from my man Kendrick Lamar.

Aside from being incredibly clever, and having a lot of talent, some rappers really are more than humans. Some rappers rap so fast, that we can’t even understand what they’re rapping.

For many, fast rapping is like fast cooking: it’s impressive technically but often has low cultural / aesthetic value. that is sometimes true when it comes to really underground rappers like Rebel XD (852 sylabbes in 42 secondes), but many others rappers like Twista, Tech-Nine or Busta Rhymes can do it almost as fast as XD and still delivers some good “bars” while rapping.

(whack rapper) Lil Wayne holds the record for most US Hot 100 hits. Tupac hold it for highest selling rap artist ever. Twista for the fastest (mainstream) rapper alive with 11.2 sylabbes a second.

Eminem holds another record, with his single “Rap God”, he packed 1,560 words into a fast and furious 6 min 4 sec. That’s a tongue-twisting average of 4.28 words per second! In one 15-second segment alone, “Slim Shady” spits 97 words (6.46 words per second) at “supersonic speed”. Eminem holds the record for most words in a  hit single.

Others real quick rapper are Twisted Insane, Crucified, Bizzy Bone, etc. check the list here.

Without a doubt, those men are more than humans. Do you wanna know what happens when one of the fastest rapper ever (Tech-Nine) meets the best rapper ever in a single track? Listen to the song below.

“If people take anything from my music, it should be motivation to know that anything is possible as long as you keep working at it and don’t back down.”

The incarnation of ideal manhood

Hello followers,

I was thinking : when men talk about virility, we often talk about having big muscles, or a nice beard. If beards could talk about virility, “they” would certainly mention the name “Chuck Norris“.

Which one of us has never watched the movie “An eye for an eye”, “Delta Force” or the TV show “Texas Ranger”? Chuck won 7 times the professional karate championship. He’s the first westner to be given the rank of the 8th grade black belt grand master in  “Tae Kwon Do”. Chuck also masters “judo”, “brazilian jiu-jitsu”, “tang soo do” and because no martial art is a challenge for him, he created the “Chun Kuk Do”.

In real life Chuck did lost some fights, before becoming THE BEST. In movies, he has only lost once, it was against another martial art god “Bruce Lee”. (Guess which one of them is still alive 😉 ).

Despite his will, Chuck became a true legend on internet, some cool short stories named “facts” try to remember to each one of us that Chuck is beyond a human being. Check out some here.

  • Chuck Norris once heard that nothing can kill him, so he tracked down nothing and killed it.
  • While other children were playing in sand, Chuck was playing in concrete
  • Chuck Norris makes fire by rubbing 2 ice cubes together.
  • Chuck Norris once fought superman. The loser had to wear his underwear over his pants.
  • Chuck Norris has a diary. It’s called the Guinness Book of World Records.
  • There once was a street called Chuck Norris, but the name was changed for public safety because nobody crosses Chuck Norris and lives.
  • Chuck Norris threw a grenade and killed 50 people, then it exploded.
  • Chuck Norris counted to infinity. Twice.
  • Chuck Norris can hear sign language.
  • Chuck Norris will never have a heart attack… even a heart isnt foolish enough to attack Chuck Norris.
  • When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.
  • There is no theory of evolution, just a list of creatures Chuck Norris allows to live.
  • Chuck Norris can kill your imaginary friends.
  • When Bruce Banner gets mad he turns into the Hulk. When the Hulk gets mad he turns into Chuck Norris. When Chuck Norris gets mad, run.
  • Chuck Norris can strangle you with a cordless phone
  • Cars look both ways before Chuck Norris crosses the street.
  • Chuck Norris’s computer has no “backspace” button, Chuck Norris doesn’t make mistakes.
  • Chuck Norris can build a snowman out of rain.
  • Bill Gates lives in constant fear that Chuck Norris’ PC will crash.
  • Chuck Norris won an arm wrestling match with both hands tied behind his back.
  • Chuck actually died four years ago, but the Grim Reaper can’t get up the courage to tell him.
  • Chuck Norris can hit you so hard your blood will bleed.
  • Some people wear a superman pyjama, Superman wears a Chuck Norris’s

I like to believe some of these “facts” aren’t real, nobody can beat Superman, not even the omnipotent Chuck Norris. But I have to admit that in a fight between Chuck and Son Goku I don’t really know who would win, lmao. Interest to note that, even a superhuman like Chuck knows he needs God if he wants to suceed in what he does. Peace everyone.

I definitely feel I do have God in my corner.

The World Strongest Man

Hello hello^^

Some of us  go to the gym to become stronger. But there are those who are stronger than 99,99% of the world population. Every year, an official contest chose The World’s Strongest Man.

They have contests as vehicle pull, where they pull even planes across 30m. they squat with 450 kg, they lift 150 kg stones, etc. The man who won more times this competition is the polish Mariusz Pudzianowski, he won it 5 times. Lithuanina Zydrunas Savickas is often called “the strongest man nowadays”, he won the TWSM contest 4 times and he is the only powerlifter to have won every modern strongman competition. This two men are part of the top 10 strongest men ever.

2016 strongest man is the american Brian Shaw. but i think we need to start making some room to “the mountain” from Game of Thrones. He’s participating more and more at the TWSM competition, and he won the fridge-carry contest against Savickas.

Check out at the video below the TWSM trailer:

Most of our strongest men can bench-press and squat with more than 200 kg, and deadlift more than 400 kg. Sure they are not as strong as Hulk or Superman, but they are real. they are real life superhumans.

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”

How tall are you?

Hello again folks,

In 21st century, the average french man is 1.75m tall, and woman 1.62m. Around the world, some people are very small, small, big or very big, that’s something normal.

In Guinness book, we can find some men with extraordinary height. The tallest man who has ever existed is Robert Wadlow, this american was 2.72m tall. He only lived until 22 years old, because those amazing people have a weakened immune system which is sad.

The smallest man ever was Chandra Bahadur Dangi, this nepalese was only 54,6 cm tall. Just a little bit bigger than a normal baby. Unfortunately the very small people immune system isn’t better than the giant’s.

Imagine how difficult it must be theirs everyday lives. The “giants” often need a cane so they can walk. Their clothes are tailor-made, and of course they can’t find nice shoes at the nearest Foot-Locker.

The lives of the “dwarfs” must not be easier. It’s hard to imagine a 56 cm person walking in the busy subways of Paris. Those men aren’t superheros, but they are mentally strong to live with all those problems and the worst of all is “the way people look to them”. For me they are just superhumans trying to live like the rest of us.

Guess we should all be grateful by the size we have, even if we’re a little bit smaller or bigger than the others.

 

Who needs super powers?

Hello folks,

If I say “superhero”, what is the first thing you think of? “Superpowers” of course. Hulk is known for his incredible strength, Thor is a god and Superman…well he’s one of the most powerful superheros.

It’s natural to think that to be a superhero, we need to have powers. Fortunately for us, it is not always like that. So among those super powerful gods, we can find “normal” humans like Batman, Ironman, Green Arrow, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Black Panther etc.

Those humans are usually genius, athletic, they are master of all martial arts and super-rich. But there is a particular superhero that proved to us all that even a regular guy could be a superhero. H!is name is Kick-ass.

I think that in the end, the most important message Kick-ass gave us is :

You don’t have to be a bad-ass to be a superhero, Dave. You just have to be brave.

From orient to occident

Hello everyone,

After India, I propose we keep our trip around asiatic culture. How many of us have dream of fighting as well as a ninja?

Oriental marrtial arts are often called Kung-fu. What’s interesting about that is that Kung-fu is not really a violent martial art. Matter of fact, it was first originated on the need orientals had to hunt and to defend themselves.

Old orientals cultures were known for their “mastery of the Qi”. And to mastery it, they created different martial arts like Shaolin Kung-fu, Tai-chi, etc. The perfect example of it would be the manga “Dragon Ball” where Son Goku master the power of his Qi to defend himself, he calls it “Kamé Hamé Ha” (check the link^^).

Bruce Lee brought oriental martial arts to occident. He opened the way for other chinese stars like Jackie Chan and Jet Li. But as well to occidental stars like Jean-Claude Van-Damme, Steven Seagal or even the immortal Chuck Norris.

People often discuss which one between Bruce and Chuck is the strongest, well, i hope the video below will help you answer this question.

Althought Bruce Lee is dead now, he is still immortal for a lot of us. Without any doubts we could say that he was more than a human, he was a superhuman.

“The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.”

Superhumans in Bollywood

Hello humans fellow,

When we say “superhuman” we often think “Movies” and “Hollywood”. We forgot the biggest movie industry in the world “Bollywood“.

With over 1000 movies per year (twice more than his US equivalent), superhumans managed to find a place for themselves among those features films.

Bollywood movies are usually made like a more than 3 hours musical comedy. It’s funny that even “normal people” on those movies look like superhumans. The good guys are often super strong and fast, check this video out.

They do make superheros movies thought, the most famous is Krrish. We could mention Shaktiman, Drona, G-one, etc.

But they also remake Hollywood movies, here is an example for Matrix. In the next video we have an exemple for Superman and Spiderman…sorry, Spiderwoman.

So you understood, if you want to see a strong, good looking, and lovely guy, check out Bollywood movies.

Whether times good or bad, we’ll always be together, just like eyelashes are with the eyes.
