AceShowbiz - Soulja Boy has one more reason to hit headlines. The "Sneaky Link 2.0" rapper has left fans baffled after he bragged about paying strangers $1,000 to be his "sandwich holder."
In a video surfacing online, Big Draco could be seen standing next to two men as he smiled ear-to-ear. "I'm the first rapper with a sandwich holder," the emcee declared. "Hold my sandwich, n***a."
The man who held Soulja's food then exclaimed, "That n***a gave me $1,000 to hold a sandwich." He then quipped, "I'ma a sandwich-holding son of a b***h."
Many have since reacted to the clip. "is that really something you have to flex," one person asked. "Ian gon lie holding a man's sandwich for him is crazy," another added. "More like sandwich eater GODDAMN BOY," a third replied.
Others, meanwhile, were less than impressed by Soulja's action. "He really still tryin hard to stay relevant," one user claimed. "Soulja gotta stay relevant so he still doing his 'first rapper to do' bulls**t," someone else noted, with a different person echoing, "He really played this 'first rapper' bs out."
In July 2021, Soulja was dragged for claiming that he's the first rapper to introduce the clothing brand BAPE (A Bathing Ape). "I was the first rapper on BAPE period," the "Crank That" rapper said when speaking to Complex.
"I understand what they did and it's respectable," he continued. "But as far as the culture, as far as internet, as far as fashion, as far as the streets, the trap, the trenches, the kids and everything that matter, that was all off of the first album."
While Soulja believed that he's the first, Internet users came with receipts that there were other rappers who sported the brand way before him. "I thought @Pharrell was the first one on the Bape wave for hip-hop," a Twitter user wrote. Similarly, someone else added, "The only reason I know what Bathing Ape is is because of Pharrell."
"The whole Bape situation with Soulja Boy is exactly what happens when you let a meme get out of hand lol. Any person older than him & around during the Neptune era knows Pharrell was responsible for introducing it to the culture. Soulja barely had a career then," another fan shared.
