In fact, everything really lies not in some memes, but in quite specific Public Enemy (and it is most clearly heard in their cult hit "Bring the Noise"). The yell of "yeah, boy" was not just an important ritual of the band on live, this yell was generally a very popular sample (I can't judge whether it was used before Public Enemy or not). Well, if you consider that Public Enemy is an important group not only for hip-hop, but for the entire American pop culture in general, it is not surprising that one of the lines of their big hit entered the people. And - yes, it also played into the hands of its ambiguous meaning. Yeah, boy is not just "Yes, chuwaaaak", for the word "boy" in some Western American black ghettos you can be shocked at the very least, because the word in criminal slang is offensive and in terms of conotational shades is closest to our "goof" or "stamp". That is why it is not surprising that a joyful cry "Yes, loshara !!!" entered the people, filled with complacency and surging energy.
In fact, "Yeah Boyyyyy" is a phrase that Public Enemy's Flava Flav, a member of the group Flava Flav, shouts at as long as possible in one breath, this is a kind of ritual that hype listeners. And the memes arose, probably, because the boy was just trying to repeat the rapper's legendary cry to the camera, that's all
I do not deny the theory of the first speaker, but personally I learned this great meme long before the appearance of the video with the kid saying the phrase e fight for 2 minutes, I learned this phrase and used it in full back in 2010, namely after watching the movie "Piranhas ", in the track" Public Enemy vs. Benny Benassi "at 1:40 this very phrase" Yeaaah boi "is pronounced
It's simple - one little boy uploaded a video on YouTube in which he tried to shout the phrase Yeah boy as long as possible in one breath.

It is not clear why this two-minute video, devoid of meaning and, in principle, not deserving to be so famous, was distributed on the Internet. Nevertheless, her fight spawned a bunch of remixes using this video, and also came into use (both I and my friends say this quite often - I don't know why, it's just that this phrase is almost perfect for everything that happens around and expresses positive / sarcastic opinion)
