Watch James Lanning Rap While Dangling From Atop A Crane

Posted by , Aug 8, 2016 at 03:53pm

Don't try this at home. Or anywhere. Ever.


Rapper/thrill-seeker/urban explorer James Lanning isn't afraid of taking his lyrics to new heights, as evidenced by his videos which show him scaling some of New York City's tallest buildings with nothing more than a GoPro strapped to his head.

His latest stunt took him to an abandoned power plant in an undisclosed location, where he goes acapella while dangling from a giant bridge, grinning from ear to ear as he makes the insane look effortless. If you're palms don't get sweaty watching these types of videos you probably don't have a pulse.

One commenter on facebook questioned why he'd put his life at risk for "likes" and "follows" to which he replied:

Totally understand your point dude! My family has reached out to me many times to get me to stop. What they don't realize is that doing these things helps keep me alive. I was suicidal for some time, and was one step away from killing myself by jumping from a building. I started climbing in NYC about two years ago and it's been my way of conquering that obstacle and showing myself that I'm stronger than that. I hope that makes sense. All of the best. I appreciate your concern.

As mentioned, this isn't James's first foray into the insane: his music video for "One," shot entirely on GoPro, is an adrenaline fueled visual which you can check out below.
