Art Prize # 55311
My Art Prize Entry, The Art Of Freestyle, will be a 17 HOUR IMPROVISED FREESTYLE RAP that will feature me moving throughout the city, backed by different DJ's and musicians as I collaborate with the thousands of people who will converge on Grand Rapids during The ArtPrize Competition.
-THIS FREESTYLE WILL ALSO BREAK THE GUINNESS RECORD FOR MARATHON FREESTYLE RAP-
Although the Artist Entries are impressive each year...I'm most excited about the power that exists in all of the humans who usually participate in the contest strictly as voters.
The goal of my entry is to engage them by encouraging them to provide words, objects and images that will be immediately incorporated into the content of my freestyle, which will also break the Guinness World Record for Marathon Freestyle Rap.
The success of the piece will be determined by YOU. Let's Collaborate.
We will be using the hash tags below to gather words and images from people to be incorporated into the freestyle, as well as to organize video and photos taken by those we come into contact with during the freestyle.
Below is a rough schedule of our route, this may change a bit due to unexpected circumstances or additions to the piece. We will be constantly updating our progress and any changes or additions at...
