After two failed attempts, Japanese rapper PONEY finally claimed the Guinness World Record for the longest rap marathon on his third try.
The rapper, who goes by the stage name MC PONEY, rap for a total of 26 hours and 32 minutes, breaking the previous record by nine hours.
PONEY’s journey to becoming a record breaker was not easy. He first attempted the record in 2020, but he was forced to stop after 18 hours due to exhaustion. He tried again in 2021, but he was forced to stop after 23 hours due to dehydration.
But PONEY refused to give up. He trained for months and made sure to be in top physical condition for his third attempt. On February 5, 2023, he finally achieved his goal, rapping for an incredible 26 hours and 32 minutes.
PONEY’s record-breaking performance was livestreamed on YouTube, and it was watched by thousands of fans around the world. After he finished rapping, he was greeted by a cheering crowd and presented with his Guinness World Records certificate.
In an interview with Guinness World Records, PONEY said that he was “overwhelmed” by the support he received from his fans and friends. He also said that he was “proud” to have finally achieved his goal.
