I remember back in the early 1990s, a young rapper out of Chicago was named “The World’s Fastest Rapper” by the Guinness Book of World Records. His name was Tung Twista and his debut album was a favorite of mine at the time. Though he was eventually beaten for the title, he went on to become surprisingly prolific and is still recording to this day under the name Twista.
Twista was defeated by a rapper named Rebel XD who not only held the title for seven years (I remember seeing him break it on Guinness’ short-lived TV show), I don’t think he ever actually released a song. The guy, as far as I know, existed solely to break the World Record. The video linked is funny just to see the painfully awkward moment where the court stenographer (the world’s fastest!) is asked to recite back Rebel XD’s lyrics. “Rippin and a-shippin,” indeed.
That’s kind of fast.
