Just a friendly reminder that in the early oughts, a shrieking cabal of "tastemakers" pushed these comic book nerds as the vanguard of rap music. As silly as a #FutureHive gets, it is far preferable to the grotesque alternate reality where #MrLifCommune is trending.
Fun fact: I hung this photo on my boyhood wall to remind myself what wack looked like. Happy August, y'all.
