Throwback Thursdays: Daddy Freddy Breaks His World’s Fastest Rapper Record

March 28, 2013

Words by Jesse Serwerโ€”

British emceeing was all about speed back in the day, and no one chatted faster than Daddy Freddy. In the late ’80s and early ’90s, the Trenchtown-born raggamuffin hip-hop pioneer became the world’s fastest rapper several times over.

With Daddy Freddy having turned up twice on LargeUp in the past few weeksโ€” in The Bug’s “Kill Them” video and again yesteday on Congo Natty’s jungle redux, “UK Allstars”โ€”we thought we’d share this clip of the MC shattering his own Guinness world record for most syllables in a minute, on hokey British TV show Record Breakers.
