Here is a wonderful story about the power of America’s most maligned art form: rap music. According to the mother of a young Colorado boy, her son has been inspired to go out in the world without his prosthetic eye after years of embarrassment thanks to the success of the suddenly and immensely popular rapper Fetty Wap, pictured above, who himself lost an eye at a young age.

The mom, named Brenda Vaden, posted the story about her son Jayden, who had his eye removed just weeks after his first birthday, on her Facebook page last week. According to Brenda, her son has always been terrified of being seen without his prosthetic eye, but recently found “the confidence to be different” thanks to Fetty Wap, rapper of the runaway hit “Trap Queen,” who recently became the first artist since the fucking Beatles to have his first three singles in the top 11 of the Billboard’s Hot 100 at the same time.

Rap music is great and anyone who thinks otherwise literally hates children.
