If you weren’t already tuning in to MTV’s O Music Awards to witness the first-ever online music award show, you’re definitely going to tune in now. Chiddy, half of the hip-hop group Chiddy Bang, will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for both “Longest Freestyle Rap” and “Longest Marathon Rapping.” And you thought that girl in Karmin who nailed Busta Rhymes’ verse in Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” was impressive…
For those of you who don’t have the Guinness World Records memorized (tsk, tsk), allow me to help you out — Chiddy will attempt to rap for NINE HOURS STRAIGHT. “How is that possible?!” you may be asking yourself in an alarming manner. “What if he needs to use the bathroom?!” We don’t know! We’ll find out, though! And that’s why we’ll be watching.
Chiddy’s O Music Awards rap marathon begins Thursday, April 28, at 2:30 p.m. ET at OMusicAwards.com. And you can keep up with how it’s going on Twitter by following the hashtag #RapWorldRecord.
A few more reasons to catch the O Music Awards: Indie group Matt & Kim will kick off the show, and performers include Lupe Fiasco, Mumford & Sons, and Edward Sharpe among others. Ke$ha, Cee Lo, and B.o.B. are among the presenters.
