A friend of mine Eugene Ahn aka Adam Warrock (www.adamwarrock.com) had his laptop stolen from a friend's car recently, so he decided to do a 24 Hour RAP-A-THON to raise the 2K that he needed to replace the lap-top - obviously key for him to make and perform music.

The remainder going to RAINN: The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (www.rainn.org)

He did it yesterday starting at 8:06 AM Central

And collapsing at 3:19 AM Central
https://twitter.com/WarRockRapathon/status/239275770189590528

Final tally:
19 hours, 13 minutes. 16 raps. Raised $1243.87 for RAINN and got Eugene the money for his new laptop:

And here is a breakdown of stats for the day made by fan:

*****

Here are the links to the songs that he recorded in order, along with my Twitter reviews. (I was tweeting them live as I heard them more or less, but ran out of steam after the 10th rap.)

#1 24 Hours (Beat Used: Atmosphere “I Don’t Need Brighter Days”)
4:03 (Longest)
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_24hours.mp3
LLakor: Good start. Ends a bit abruptly. Declaration why he's doing this with typical Euge self-denigration. Works in meta-sense. Rap-A-Thon has abrupt arbitrary end (planned) as well.

#2 Good... (Beat Used: YU “MmmmHmmm”)
3:02
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_goodmp3.mp3
Llakor: Bit dreamy. Mind wandered. Intended to pay attention, forgot about it playing, started doing (other) stuff... (on the computer and then the song ended and I was upset I missed it. I have played the damn thing about 10 times since then and the same thing happens every single time.)

#3 Old Man Logan (Beat Used: Reks “All In One”)
2:33
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_oldmanlogan.mp3
Llakor: THIS IS THE SHIT! #SNIKT Euge = Genius. (My favourite opening line of the songs. The one that had me the most excited first time through.)

#4 Miss Me (Beat Used: P.O.S. “Been Afraid” )
3:18
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_missme.mp3
Llakor: Moody, intricate & complicated. Like (Leonard) Cohen's The Future has layers: more you listen, more you hear. (Like that album I was suspicious the first time through, intrigued the second, inspired the third and borderline obsessed the 4th. Now my favourite of the raps of the day.)

#5 The Gauntlet (Beat Used: Aesop Rock “Crows 1″ )
3:13
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_thegauntlet.mp3
Llakor: Quirky. Feels like lost track from The War From Infinity. Why do rappers (always) have to remind us who they are?

#6 Rap Sux (Beat Used: Lyrics Born “I’m Just Raw”)
2:51
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_rapsux.mp3
Llakor: Cements @eugewarrock role as "Rapper for people who hate OR love rap music"

#7 Forever (Beat Used: Evidence “Red Letter”)
2:30
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_forever.mp3
Llakor: Very much in the tradition of Starving Artist. Only Euge could start by joyously yelling "Red Tape!" (Euge said this was his favourite of the day when he recorded it. Starting a song by joyously shouting "Red Tape" is AWESOME and second only to "S-N-I-K-T" as the best start to a song on the day.)

#8 Birdwatching (Beat Used: Eligh “Miss Busdriver”)
3:22
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_birdwatching.mp3
Llakor: Most ambitious so far? Certainly the one that seems to make Euge most nervous. Strong 2nd to Miss Me. (Only song Euge nervously said that he hoped people liked.)

#9 Scrooge McDuck (Beat Used: Zion I “Lift Me Up”)
2:39
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_scroogemcduck.mp3
Llakor: A rap about Scrooge McDuck? AWESOME! Ducksterpiece Theatre! (I co-host a weekly Disney podcast and one of our running jokes is that I am Pro-Duck and Anti-Mouse. http://www.soundonsight.org/category/radio/mousterpiece-cinema-podcast/)

#10 Back Then (Beat Used: Felt “Glory Burning”)
2:21
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AWR24_backthen.mp3
Llakor: Full Speed Ahead! One of Euge's better political rants. Good speed shifting.

#11 The End of the World (Beat Used: Atmosphere “Scalp”)
2:23
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AW24_endworld.mp3
Llakor: Slow, bluesy "I been done wrong and I shoulda seen it coming" rap. (This was right after Euge started drinking Jameson.)

#12 Iron Fist (Beat Used: Action Bronson “The Stick Up”)
1:56 (Shortest)
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AW24_ironfist.mp3
Llakor: 3rd nerd song after Old Man Logan & Scrooge McDuck. Rap as Martial Arts metaphor. Really great.

#13 Bad Times (Beat Used: Sims “Good Times”)
3:01
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AW24_badtimes.mp3
Llakor: Not sure if autobiographical or indication @eugewarrock was starting to struggle.

#14 Like a Tattooed Fist (Beat Used: DJ Babu “Fan Mail”)
2:38
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AW24_tattooedfist.mp3
Llakor: Mixing political & pop culture (Charles Laughton for the win!) Obviously tired but fatigue works here. (In the "tired of Republican crap" sense.)

#15 Cult (Beat Used: Hail Mary Mallon “Garfield”)
2:52
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AW24_cult.mp3
Llakor: Best lyrics. Can't decide if I want to hear fresh recording or if "tired of bullshit" exhaustion (is) better. (Has soul weary sound. Reaction to the Akin controversy.)

#16 Me & You (Beat Used: Eligh “Stuck With You”)
2:30
http://www.adamwarrock.com/AW24_meyou.mp3
Llakor: Obviously exhausted Euge rapping about love affair that has become tired. Smart use of weakness.

Same jokes we've all heard since "Canadian Bacon" came out way back when. All in good fun. I wish Weird Al would come here during Stampede. That would be a fun show.
