Is Going Where No Rapper Has Gone Before: SPACE

For decades, space travel was something reserved exclusively for astronauts. Unless you were part of NASA, the ESA, or another space organization, there wasn't an easy way for someone to visit outer space for themselves. But that's all changing now.

Following in the footsteps of Jeff Bezos and William Shatner, rapper DDG is apparently mentally preparing for his trip in orbit.

The Pontiac, Michigan native is scheduled to be the first rapper to ever shoot a video in space.

This announcement comes on the heels of DDG's chart-topping single Elon Musk ft rapper Gunna,

The song's success is particularly well-timed, given that DDG will soon be making headlines as the first rapper to film a music video in space.

In an interview with “Our Generation Music,” DDG says: “I'm really going because I want to experience it. I like doing crazy shit. I went scuba diving, and skydiving and I wanted to embrace that space mentality with ‘.' I can't wait to get up there. I'm not really that nervous. I'm just excited.”

The Pontiac rapper isn't heading to space only to gaze at the stars. According to the rapper, he'll be utilizing the trip to film a segment of his song video for Elon Musk.

DDG has already shot several sequences for the video in Atlanta, but it appears that certain scenes will be taken directly from space.

The rapper mentioned on the ‘Our Generation Music”: “My team contacted SpaceX, NASA, and some other companies to see if we can make happen, and it did. I'm going to be up there for a few hours. I'm no astronaut or anything, but I'm going to feel weightless and be floating for the video.”

The Pontiac rapper tweeted; “finna start training for space. ima let y'all n***s know how it is up there”

In another tweet, DDG said: “I'm fr going to space next month.. am I tripping?”

Although this is his first foray into space, DDG has already had much success as an artist: his previous projects have all charted, and he has collaborated with several other successful artists.

Musk himself was unavailable for comment at the time of this writing.

Since the rapper released the music video, we have not seen anything of the space, which raises the question of whether or not this is not just a publicity stunt on his part.

Space Exploration- It's not just for astronauts anymore

With Virgin Galatic, SpaceX, and Blue Origin all now offering space tourism, anyone with a few hundred thousand dollars can jump on a spacecraft and see the world from a whole new perspective.

These companies are making space exploration more accessible than ever before. In the past, you'd have to join NASA and train for years to be an astronaut, but now all you have to do is get your tickets and show up for your flight.

Who is better Blue Origin or SpaceX?

While both SpaceX and Blue Origin have been considered leaders in the aerospace industry, it seems that Musk's SpaceX is the clear-cut winner this time around. Musk has proven himself to be a leader in the industry who is not afraid to take risks, such as his decision to try landing on Mars despite the possibility of failure. The fact that he beat out many other competitors is a testament to his determination and strong work ethic.
