Uk Rapper Hybrid aims to Outrap Eminem Beat "Rap God" Record
Can the "Rap God" be dethroned?
It is not often that Eminem is dethroned, but a rapper from Swineshead, England, is hoping to do just that with the release of a new single.
The 27-year-old rapper, called Luke "Hybrid" to Liquidate, in which it seeks to beat the record of the song with the most letters in it. That record is currently held by Eminem's 2013 track "Rap God," which features an astonishing 1,560 words, and has a duration of six minutes and four seconds. The numbers of "Rap God" at 4.28 words per second.
Another uk rapper Harry Shotta, put a song in 2015 with 1,771 words over the course of six minutes and 23 seconds, but Guinness still recognizes Em as the record holder, which is for Most Words In a Hit single. ("Hit" is the operative word there, as in the song debuted at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and well, Shotta is not).
"Untouchable" record Hybrid plans to record, will last approximately six minutes, and in the pack of 1700 words (that, in particular, is still less than Shotta).
"As it stands there are 1,700 lyric in my song 'Untouchable', they must have a running time of six minutes, which is equivalent to 4.7 words a second," the Hybrid said while speaking with the Spalding Today. "Obviously, this could change during the recording process and that might mean that I can increase the amount of words hit per second to five or more."
Earlier this month, the Hybrid shared a minute's worth of audio of "Untouchable" via Twitter.
"I'm looking forward to #recording more of this #the #weekend With an estimated 1,700 #lyrics #record is going to be busy!," he wrote on twitter on July 14.
