Fastest rapper on the planet

By Judy Chia Hui Hsu

Seattle Times staff reporter

Seven hundred twenty-three syllables in 51.27 seconds.

That's what it took for Seattle's Ricky Brown, also known as NoClue, to break the Guinness world record earlier this year to become the fastest rapper on the planet.

The 20-year-old rapped at a tongue-numbing clip of 14.1 syllables per second. That surpassed the 12.5-syllable-a-second pace set in 1998 by Chicago artist Rebel XD.

"The first couple of times I broke the world record while practicing, my throat would hurt. It would swell up. Now it doesn't do that no more," Brown said.

"I wrote my first flow when I was 9," he said. "I grew up around music 'cause my grandfather was in a gospel band, and when I was little, I used to go to the studio with him, watching everything and learning."

Brown, who also counts Tupac Shakur as an early influence on his music, laid down the winning rap at Seattle's B & G Studios in January. His performance was monitored by a licensed speech therapist. The accomplishment is detailed in "Guinness World Records 2
006," which hit the shelves in August.
