We Sent an Intern to Interview the Hypebeasts of the 600 Person #FutureHive Line

We forgot to ask their names. Sorry.
July 23, 2015, 4:20pm

The #FutureHive was out in full effect yesterday morning to cop wristbands to his free concert at the Highline Ballroom in New York last night. People camped out from 7 AM for the first few wristbands. 600 were available and sold out by the time we arrived. The crowd got so big that they shut down 16th Street, but that didn’t stop about a hundred #FutureHive hopefuls from waiting outside the police barricades waiting on word if more bands would be released. (Also, apparently Eminem was around the corner?) You can expect that at, any major release—from shoes to clothes to tickets—hypebeasts are sure to come flocking or in the #FutureHive’s case, buzzing. We got the chance to talk to some these fashion insiders about their favorite Future songs, their outfits, and some basic astrology. We forgot to ask their names, though. Sorry.
