This Mexican Huichol MC Is Breaking a World Rap Record for More Than the Props

LA-based MC RedCloud is about to break a world record. On November 29th he’ll freestyle rhymes for more than 17 hours at Airliner, a venue in his home city.

RedCloud isn’t just out for the props. He’s also doing some world-changing.

In the final hour of his freestyle session, the MC, who is of Mexican Huichol descent, will name the 1,200 indigenous Canadian women who’ve gone missing or murdered since the 1980s. Each one will be honored.

The tribute is a move to raise awareness about a forgotten reality for Canada’s indigenous communities.

Since the ’80s, more than 1,200 indigenous women have gone missing or been killed. Based on their population size, the rate at which this happens at is three or four times the normal. The reasons behind the disappearances and killings range from poverty to inequal access to education, healthcare, and much more.

MC RedCloud is working with LA’s Indigenous Angels, a group of indigenous artists and musicians committed to raising awareness about Native issues, to raise money for the Stolen Sisters Awareness Movement.
