The Cassper Nyovest and Soulja Boy floating debate
So there’s been a debate recently about who was the first rapper ever to float whilst performing, both Cassper Nyovest and American rapper, Soulja Boy claim to be the first to do it.
Soulja Boy was the first rapper on YouTube, posting his first video in 2006 and really pioneering the internet rap genre. Since then, he’s been on a promotion tour saying that he’s the first rapper to do everything.
Mean while Cassper Nyovest floated in a stadium in front of 85,000 people, by the way which other hip hop artist is pulling these numbers? These are surely Beyoncé numbers but as for Cassper Nyovest being the first rapper to float, I totally disagree.
So if neither Cassper Nyovest nor Soulja Boy was the first rapper to float, who was the first then?
Way back in 1999, before both Cassper Nyovest and Soulja Boy were teenagers let alone thinking about a rap career, Method Man and Redman did the floating thing during a live performance in an arena.
Now I know what most people especially Cassper Nyovest fans are going to say next, that Cassper Nyovest did it at a stadium while Method Man and Redman did it at an arena, well that doesn’t matter a lot, what actually matters is who was the first to do it.
