In a recent kanye west Tour performance in Edmonton [ video below] , Kanye West took a moment to passionately call out all the imitators “stealing” his floating stage concept. The rapper exclaimed, “This the original, accept no imitations! You with the rap God right now. N****s be copying our shit bro. Stealin’ our shit, stealin’ our stages. Copying our shit one-to-one.” Some felt this was a direct shot at Drake, who had used a similar design with his overhanging lights for the Summer Sixteen tour.
However after more research American Hip Hop site such as Hypebeast ,XXL and more find that Cassper Nyovest our own SA rapper did it first . well for those of us who were present at #fillupthedome we know he did it first . “This is what we did last year,” Cassper said referring to #Fillupthedome . Cassper Nyovest, found his name being thrown around as one of the artists who copied West’s idea. To which he also responded, “Woke up to my name on American blogs about how I possibly stole kanye’s stage. We did this a year ago already. lol. Ya Neh.”
Below are images of cassper perfomance last year at #fillupthedome and kanye west perfomance this year
as per Hybeatst “if you pay closer attention you will also see the text, “If you’re reading this I made it,” which is also similar to Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late cover. Hip Hop worldwide has a bit of biting/borrowing of ideas “.
We can confirm when it comes to the flying stage concept our Very own Nyovest did it first .below are more images and video you decide . is it who did it best that matter or who did it first ? one thing is for certain kanye get some of his inspiration from South Africa
