Chiddy Bang Breaks World Record for Longest Freestyle
At the first-ever O Music Awards on Thursday night, Chiddy Bang performed but didn't take home one of the newfangled cube awards, aimed at honoring online music accomplishments. However, Chidera "Chiddy" Anamege himself (pictured) was actually the night's biggest winner, having won a much more impressive prize.
After freestyle rapping for 9 hours, 18 minutes and 22 seconds, Chiddy broke the Guinness World Record for the longest rap in history. Barely skipping a beat after being informed, live and on camera, by an official representative that he had broken the world record, Chiddy continued to rap until the O Music Awards itself wrapped up a few minutes later.
And while a cause for celebration was in order, before Chiddy himself could take it in, his partner in crime, Noah Beresin, announced, "We're gonna play our brand new single that's never been heard by anyone!" Chiddy, however, was still on a roll -- barely locking into the song itself, he opted instead to just keep freestylin'. In fact, much like the run-on acceptance speeches at other, more traditional awards shows, they had to roll credits to get him to stop.
