The American-based rapper with Igbo roots this year had a rap freestyle running for 9 hours, 18 minutes, and 22 seconds at the MTV organised ‘O Music Awards' to beat the previous record of 9 hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds held by the rapper named M-Eighty.

The duo met in late 2008 during their freshman year at Drexel University, in Noah's hometown of Philadelphia, PA. Their sound is based on the fusion of hip hop and alternative using unique sample choices from artists such as Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Passion Pit, MGMT, and Yelle.
