2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

West Michigan Wordsmith, Rick Chyme will demonstrate highly improvisational and interactive artfulness of freestyle rapping as he weaves in and out of the landscape of Art Prize entries all the while creating lyrics on the spot over varying sound beds (pre-programmed instrumental music, live instrumentation from volunteer musicians). Rick will set out to become the new world record holder for Longest Freestyle Rap by topping the current record of over 16 hours 30 minutes. During this 17 hour lyrical marathon, he will interact with thousands of people who be welcomed to guide the direction of Chyme's rhymes by suggesting topics and even introducing objects to Rick as he reacts and creates based on what the public introduces to the equation.
