FiveThirtyEight, a polling site, has released its list of the 10 fastest rappers in the industry.

The team listened to 10 songs from rappers proclaimed to be the fastest and counted how many words per minute they spouted.

Judging solely on speed, FiveThirtyEight found that Twista is the quickest, averaging about 280 words per minute.  The 10 rappers were chosen based on having a professional record deal or having appeared on an official album from a signed artist.  (YouTubers don’t apply.)

The list is as follows:

To get a taste of Twista’s speed, listen to his song “Mista Tung Twista” which dubs 1,287 words in 4 minutes and 36 seconds.

Are there any rappers that didn’t make the list, but should have?
