With Street Fighter V being released today (19/02/16), Capcom and PlayStation are pulling out all the marketing stops like this evening’s Street Fighter V’s launch party in Singapore. But one particular event has gotten considerable buzz: rapper Lupe Fiasco went head-to-head with Daigo Umehara aka the Beast aka Guinness World Record holder for most wins in Street Fighter tournaments in a Street Fighter V exhibition match… and won.

Of course, there are those who cried foul that Daigo threw the match so as to create hype for Street Fighter V but Daigo waved away that notion. Watch the video and come to your own conclusion.

Street Fighter V is out today on PlayStation 4 and PC.
