If you haven’t heard yet, Chiddy from Chiddy Bang took up the challenge to break the World Record for Longest Freestyle, which was set at 9 hours, 16 minutes, and 22 seconds. I received an email from the Chiddy Bang fan group last week announcing it the day of, and instantly thought that this was impossible. I couldn’t imagine doing ANYTHING for 9 hours straight, none the less talk in rhymes to a beat. When I told some people about it, I instantly heard criticism from people saying, “Yeah, but it probably wasn’t THAT good of a freestyle.” Are you serious? Who cares how good it was, it’s not going to appear on an album. Any kind of freestyle for over 9 hours straight is amazing, I don’t care the quality. He did it straight up, and it honestly wasn’t bad for anyone who watched it. Honestly, I can’t even freestyle for 10 seconds, so that seems like a huge feat to me. His record is now set at 9 hours, 18 minutes, and 22 seconds.
Check out the video after the jump, as well as a parody video Asher Roth and his friends put out.
I couldn’t find a video of the finished product, but here’s a link for anyone interested of him finishing up.
A few days later, Boyder, one of Asher Roth’s friends, releases this video of him breaking Chiddy’s record.
