A few days ago, Dr. Dre posted a clip of Eminem ripping his rapid flow verse from 2020’s hit “Godzilla” with the caption: “Marshall Mathers vs Who???!!”
Since then, many famous faces have responded to Dre’s post, including R.A. The Rugged Man, who thinks he broke Eminem’s “Godzilla” record with “Gotta Be Dope,” featuring A-F-R-O and DJ Jazzy Jeff, a track he released shortly after Eminem’s single dropped.
On “Godzilla” Eminem raps 10.65 syllables per second or 339 words in 30 seconds. On “Gotta Be Dope,” RA raps at a speed of 11.14 syllables per second.
Suffolk County, New York-born rapper shared the video on his Instagram, with the screenshot of “Godzilla” breaking record article over it, and in the caption, he wrote: “Easy.”
Matter of fact, Eminem’s “Godzilla” holds a Guinness World Record for “the fastest verse in a hit song,” meaning, the song to be considered for this specific record, must have a charting success on Billboard (must reach at least Top 20 on Hot 100 charts). “Godzilla” debuted at No. 3). Otherwise, a Seattle rapper named NoClue is officially holding the title of the world’s “Fastest Rap MC” by Guinness World Records, for rapping 723 syllables in 51.27 seconds (14.1 syllables per second) on his track “New West.”
