In what could be one of this week's most entertaining livestreamed events: LA-based rapper Murs is currently in the middle of a marathon, possibly record-setting YouTube-broadcasted rap session. As part of a promotional stunt with Boost Mobile, Murs is attempting to rap for a solid 24 hours straight (with a merciful five-minute break every hour) to set the record for world's longest recorded rap session.

According to Pitchfork, there is currently no Guinness World Record for the feat, but in order to qualify Murs has to keep recording for the whole 24 hours. At the time of publication, Murs is on hour three of 24, but if you tune in to the livestream below he doesn't seem to be too phased just yet. He's also working off of a tracklist of hip-hop classics and deep cuts, so the result won't be one unbroken day-long freestyle so much as a physical act of endurance. Still, there are a lot more hours to go before he crosses the finish line.
