The Fastest Rapper In the Game?

Posted by - 12:37 AM on 03/25/14
FiveThirtyEight crunched the data to find the "fastest rapper in the game" -- the results?
Joey Bada$$, who manages 180 wpm, is the best amateur of the bunch, followed by DyMe-A-DuZiN (179.7 wpm) and Shawn Chrystopher (174.2), but none comes close to Twista’s 280 wpm.

I expected Tech N9ne to be higher honestly, not surprised Twista's put them all to shame though

I know he's not super well known, but V.I.T.A.L. Emcee has definitely got to be up there. Some of his stuff is ridiculous. No surprise Twista topped this list though!

I thought it was fairly common knowledge that Twista is the fastest?

a few things:

- they don't offer a compelling reason for changing RG's methodology
- choosing a single, most popular song is a really bad way to gather data
- in what world is Joey, a major label artist, an "amateur"?
- I don't see how you could claim to measure rap speed without accounting for whether they're, you know, actually rapping in the whole song
- also, that's just some random forum poster who came up with the original ten they used. that'd be like just coming on AP and picking a random OP for the data

it's fun though, i like playing with RG's word measurement system

This! Also, do you remember the Guinness TV Show back in the late '90s/early '00s?? I think I remember Twista being on an episode?

I'm a little upset that this is definitely gonna cause someone to make a very definite list with a better method including all songs by an artist.
