Is your Instagram feed one big hoverboard party?
In case you haven't noticed (you've definitely noticed), Hip Hop artists appear to have collectively decided to put an end to a tradition that has served humanity perfectly well for thousands of years now.
They've decided to stop walking places.
Whilst the majority of us are stuck using such an ancient mode of transport (putting one foot in front of the other is so last year), artists such as Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa are now 'rolling' places, on what people are calling (rightly or wrongly) 'hoverboards.'
So, our question is this...
We could go on but you get the point. Everyone on your Instagram feed has a hoverboard-segway-wheely-thing.

It’s interesting how upset people get when you call it a hoverboard, but then all give different answers as to what it actually is called XD— Matthias (@Matthiasiam) October 6, 2015
All because I didn't want to ditch the technogy everyone will be using in the next 6 months. Do what you want kids. pic.twitter.com/7F0KIQgFrA— Cameron (@wizkhalifa) August 23, 2015
