Lyric Insults Autism Community

Lyrics from the recently released song “Jodeci Freestyle” from hip hop artists Drake and J.Cole have many in the autism community up in arms. The song, which was released last month and is now getting airplay, contains the following lyric by J. Cole: “I’m artistic, you n—-s is autistic, retarded.” Kevin Healey leading Campaigner said “im absolutely disgusted that the hip hop artists can say such lyrics in there songs, and that word R appals me as some one living with the condition,”

These lyrics are offensive and perpetuate negative stereotypes. There are many inspiring individuals with autism and other disabilities who have achieved great success across a variety of artforms, including music. We encourage J. Cole to recognize their talents and learn from the positive example they have set for all of us.
