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.”
