Comedian, visual artist, and purveyor of modern thought Zack Fox has grown into a cultural documenter of sorts.

The Atlanta native formerly known as Booty Math, suffused his social media bossdom from the pages of Tumblr to the timelines on Twitter, where his reemergence as Zack Fox has been nothing short of laughable and luminary. Now, he’s a force on these internet streets — creating and curating memes, acting in Flying Lotus‘ debut feature film, KUSO, hosting his own Red Bull radio show Bruh with Awful Records, and using social media to harken back to the cultural moments that make millennial history so weirdly paramount.

When Zack Fox talks, yells, tweets, or dabs, we listen. So, it’s only right that we continue our final days of Black History Month by asking Zack Fox about his favorite moments in Atlanta music history:
