Black Rock City, Nevada, United States / August 29, 2008
Ibrahim Earth Angel demonstrates tremendous emcee skills by rapping 206 words with a British accent in 30 seconds, a new universal record.
Earth Angel kicked the flow on August 29, 2008 at the Burning Man festival in Black Rock City, Nevada. Playa Book of Records Executive Committee members Dan Rollman and Steve Payonzeck were on hand to document the record and count the words.
I’m a ground breaker listen to my baseline shake ya I’m a pace maker so you can take a couple of beats you can take a minim rest to catch your breath and all that’s left is to proceed with the earthquake this is a mic check as the DJ cues up dubs on each deck my mind drifts back in retrospect to my rehearsal and the ninety-nine mics I wrecked I make studios look like war zones when they’re strewn with the shattered shells of microphones I crack metal with my dulcet tones and my poetry confounds all attempts by MC clones these MC clones will try cloning but when I step up on the mic I’m owning my defense is full press I’m not zoning I’m sharp like a samurai sake like a ronin I’m undertoning I used to get teenage kicks but now I’m older and I’m still sounding sick and I’m surrounded by MCs who got their arses kicked and I can guarantee that none of them are half as quick I be still spitting I’m bringing the beat until your head starts splitting the marks I’m hitting the bass I’m pounding so make some noise and tell me how I’m sounding.
