Pittsburgh Rapper Still Going Strong In Attempt To Break World Record

PITTSBURGH (KDKA)--Local rapper Harvey 'Frzy' Daniels is a few hours away from breaking the Guinness World Record for longest freestyle rap.

'Frzy' started his quest Saturday morning to set the record at 31 straight hours. That means he'll break the record at 5:00 p.m.

He promises to rap until 6:00 p.m. if the crowd sticks around.

Primanti's says if he raps until 7:00 p.m., he'll get a year's supply of free sandwiches. Only one problem. The Block Northway closes at 6:00 p.m.

The Emmy award-winning rapper/musician is making the attempt on the 1-year anniversary of Frzy Day, which was given to him by the City of Pittsburgh on January 11th, 2019.

To help Frzy accomplish this global record, there will be non-stop music by 13 DJs from Grind Hard, 26 producers, and interactive games.

You can be part of history by recording your name at the event, and once the attempt is approved, you will have the opportunity to send away for a certificate from Guinness World Records.
