Rapper and host of Boost Mobile’s Where You At? LA event Murs is attempting to rhyme his way in the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s longest rap marathon. He’s looking to rap non-stop and live for more than 24 hours straight. He’s only allowed one five-minute break per hour.
“For the season finale of Where You At? LA, we wanted to do something a little bit outrageous,” he said. “Once I volunteered to break the record for rapping and my team loved the idea, my heart kind of sunk a little. Doing anything for more than 24 hours straight is insane, but to rap lyrics live for that long in front of the world is a huge task for me. Wish me luck!”
Currently, his attempt is being live streamed on YouTube, and as of press time, he’s been going for more than six hours. To prepare himself for the feat, Murs has been implementing a healthy diet consisting of fruits and vegetables. He’s been working on his rhymes and finding the right songs and production with his close friend, producer Mr. Len.
The attempt, which will come to its dramatic end tomorrow (Oct. 13) at 11 a.m. PT, is brought to you by Boost Mobile and Unlimited Music Streaming featuring Slacker Radio.
Keep up with Murs as he aims to get his name in the record book below.
