    The Early 2000s taught us so many life lessons.

    He lived the life we wanted to lead. Who didn't fantasize about being a boy (or girl) genius?

    2. TJ taught us laptop computers were cool.

    Very discrete!

    3. The picture of maturity, TJ always handled himself with class.

    Marcus, you child.

    6. Because Mo Tibbs is the best friend we all wished we had.

    I wonder why the name "Mackadocious" hasn't been snatched up by some other band??

    12. TJ has an explanation for everything. Including his older brother's antics!

    13. A classic example that getting a new style can give you a new attitude.

    Even if that attitude isn't a good one...womp womp, TJ.

    14. Most importantly, Mo and Marcus taught us all how to freestyle like a boss.

    Way to keep it real, fellas. I applaud you.

    In conclusion, if you didn't watch this show, you are as clueless as Mackey.
