About

"Can We Listen To Something Else Besides Future?" is a two-panel exploitable meme based on a photograph of American rapper Kodak Black looking agitated behind the wheels of a car, followed by a second photograph of a woman being thrown out of the front passenger seat, presumably for asking the driver to change the music.

Origin

On March 10th, 2014, Kodak Black[1] tweeted the original image with the caption "Young Rich Nigga Trappin Outta Bentley." The earliest known combination of the image and the phrase "Can We Listen To Something Else Besides Future?" was posted by Twitter user @IdiotOlympics on January 13th, 2016. In the next three months, the tweet garnered over 9,700 retweets and 8,900 likes.
