Meet George Watsky, The Fast-Rapping ‘Pale Kid’

Some MCs focus on wordplay when they rhyme, while others have a need for speed. George Watsky, a rapper who spits rhymes faster than Speed Racer drives, is burning up web traffic with more than 135,000 hits in one day thanks to a hot post on Reddit.

Originally raised in San Francisco and currently based in LA, 23-year-old Watsky, now known to the internet as ‘Pale Kid Raps Fast,’ was originally discovered on the sixth season of ‘Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry‘ and crowned the 2006 Brave New Voices International Poetry Slam Champion.

Fortunately Watsky isn’t just a kid with a camera and some skills — he’s got a whole self-titled album on iTunes and even a small tour, currently making the rounds at college campuses around the country.
