Its been clear from the beginning that Jay and Kanye are two very different personalities. I dont think there ever was a genuine friendship between them it was always more of a profiting from each other thing. Never bought that whole big brother thing
We all know Jay didnt wanna give Kanye a shot at the ROC cause he thought he was wack on the mic. And Kanye himself said siding with Jay during the Jay-Dame beef was an opportunistic move. He knew being affiliated with Jay was better for his career.
One is a calculating businessman, the other is a hyperactive and emotional artist type. I'm not surprised it came to this
West Coast rap veteran Murs began his heroic crusade to do the unthinkable on Wednesday (Oct. 12): break the Guinness World Record for the longest rap marathon by rapping for over 24 hours straight, promoting Boost Mobile’s Unlimited Music Streaming, featuring Slacker Radio. At 9 a.m. PST on Wednesday, Boost Mobile’s Where You At LA? host embarked upon his quest, which included a rap karaoke tour de force the likes of which we’ve literally never seen before.
It’s fitting that Murs would try to make rap history by functioning as a living, breathing museum for hip-hop. Over the course of a little more than 24 hours, Murs raps his way through just about every mid-1980s and 1990s rap classic in the book, showcasing an impressive mix of endurance and stylistic malleability in the process.
Throughout the marathon, the seemingly inexhaustible Murs effortlessly mimicked legendary rappers as he performed their timeless songs without missing a beat. When the laid-back instrumental for A Tribe Called Quest’s “Bonita Applebum” begins, he takes on the nasally rasp of the group’s front man Q-Tip. When the beat for Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” kicks off, he assumes Chuck D’s husky, authoritative thump of a voice.
Even on a surface level, rapping for more than 24 hours is more than a little outrageous. However, when you breakdown the numbers, the feat becomes even more staggering. The average song is three minutes long, so each hour, Murs rapped about a lengthy album’s worth of tracks — roughly 20 songs, to be exact. That means Murs spit the equivalent of 480 songs in total. Now that’s what we call passion.
