Ski Mask The Slump God and Twista Battle to See Who Can Rap Faster
Update (Oct. 4, 4:03 p.m. EST):
Looks like 88 Rising has taken down the video for now. We'll let you know when the clip has been re-upped.
For years, Chicago's own Twista has been thought to be the world's fastest rapper. That's probably still the case, but another tongue-twisting phenom, the one and only Ski Mask The Slump God, has stepped forth to stake his claim for the title. Recently, the two had an inventive 88 Rising-facilitated showdown to decide which of them is the fastest rapper, and it was pretty epic.
For the contest, Ski and Twista were edited into a Street Fighter-esque video game as each of them take turns seeing how fast the other can spit. The set-up includes health bars and the outlandish fireball-throwing techniques the Street Fighter characters use in the video game. 88 Rising clearly went all out. Ski Mask, who appeared in Keith Ape's Cole Bennett-directed video for "Achoo!" just the other day, goes first in the back-and-forth. We'll let you see the outcome for yourself.
In other Ski Mask news, the rapper recently announced a brand new project with a beloved producer. While he's yet to officially name the producer, he posted a few clips teasing some collabs with Timbaland, a music industry vet Ski called his favorite producer this past spring. Is Timbo that "beloved" producer? We'll have to wait and see, but Ski's got a new tape dropping in the next few weeks.
For now, check out Ski and Twista's speed-rapping competition below.
