Rapper Seeks to Break Guinness Record With 52 Hour Freestyle

(AllHipHop News) Today

(May 3) DJ Green

Arrow is seeking to establish a new Guinness record by embarking on 52

hour freestyle.

Arrow,

who is based out of Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, will

start freestyling this afternoon. The majority of the rhymes will be in

12 hour intervals, with the rapper taking hour breaks to recover before

stopping at 52 hours.

Naming

the event “Suckas Need Bodyguards,” DJ Green Arrow is framing his event

as a tribute to recently deceased legends Guru and Roc Raida, and all

Hip-Hop fans worldwide. Also, the rapper has emphasized that all his

rhymes will be 100% improvised and inspired by what he sees.

“5.5

hours until I begin rapping for 12 hours, taking an hour break, and

then repeating that 4 times,” Arrow posted on his Facebook page earlier

this morning. “[I’m] stopping when I get to the showing of “The Other

Side of Hip Hop”, at Maysles Cinema, 7PM [on] Wednesday night (May 5).

52 hours is a lot and there is always something to rhyme about in New

York City.”

Before

arriving at Harlem’s Maysles Cinema, Arrow plans to make stops in every

New York borough along with brief visits to northern New Jersey and

Bridgeport, Connecticut over the next two days.

Fans interested in viewing updates through Wednesday can visit DJ Green Arrow’s personal website at www.djgreenarrow.com or his Facebook account (www.facebook.com/djgreenarrow).Correction: The current official holder of the world record is Wu-Tang Clan affiliate M-Eight, with a time of 9 hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds.
