This rapper’s sign language interpreter KILLS it with her mad skillz.

Ever been to a concert with a sign language interpreter helping hearing-impaired people get deeper into the music? They’re especially popular at rap shows where lyrical content is everything.

Take the case of a recent show by Twista, a guy who has been tagged as the fastest rapper in the world when he had a spurt measuring 280 words a minute. If he’s going to have someone sign his raps, that person had better be good. In this case, the job went to 42-year-old Galloway Gallego.

I have no idea how accurate her signing actually is, but I’m choosing to believe she hit ever word.
