"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.
On March 10th, 2014, Kodak Black 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.
On January 14th, 2016, Twitter user @PersianFlacko tweeted the image and the phrase in verbatim, racking up 1,900 retweets and 1,500 likes (shown below, left) over the next three months. That same day, @CamGotClout tweeted the same image with the caption reading "can we listen to country music," which drew over 2,100 retweets and nearly 1,700 likes in the same time period.
In early April, Tumblr user Slimybaby posted a variant of the meme with a reference to Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto, gaining over 13,000 notes, while another variation made by Tumblr user Slimeghost, which has been since then deleted, garnered almost 12,000 notes. On April 4th, Tumblr user Shitpostcentral posted a Steven Universe version of the meme, which accrued more than 7,000 notes within the next two weeks.
