Press Release: August 25, 2020
LyricalGenes (Dana Burtin) does not have “lyrical” in his name for nothing. LyricalGenes has a message in each song he releases which has gained him immense support from fans. LyricalGenes took to Instagram and YouTube as an attempt to beat the world record for the most words said in 31 seconds. Currently, Eminem (Marshall Mathers) holds the record at 229 words in 31 seconds from his song “Godzilla”. With LyricalGenes song “JxK”, a remix of 44 More by Logic, LyricalGenes raps 175 words in 30 seconds. Although LyricalGenes did not beat Eminem’s record, LyricalGenes is now top ranked in the world for most words rapped in this allotted time.
LyricalGenes's friendly competition with Eminem was an effort toward reviving the more lyrical and technical rap style that Eminem and LyricalGenes possesses. In addition, it has been proposed that the Guinness World Record books should create a category to acknowledge the artists who have mastered their art form. With that being said, not only will artists receive recognition if the Guinness World Record books create a category like this, but it will also help revive a particular style of rap.
