Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege (of Chiddy Bang) broke the Guinness World Record for Longest Freestyle Rap during the first MTV_O Awards. Chiddy rapped for 9 hours and 18 minutes, beating previous record holder M-Eighty (who had rapped for 9 hours and 15 minutes in 2009).
Chiddy also set a new record for Longest Marathon Rapping – he beat out D.O, who had once managed to rap for 8 hours and 45 minutes.
Below you have the final minutes of Chiddy’s rap. You will notice he looks a lot at a screen. What he is reading is words that people are tweeting in real time to give him some inspiration. He sort of loses it towards the end (which is entirely logical – he had been at it for 9 hours), but he manages to pick up the pace for a rallying finale.
