If you haven’t heard of one Dan Bull, you just need to do some quick Googling. Dan raps about games, gaming culture, politics, and issues concerning people with autism. Personally, I didn’t know who Dan was until my boyfriend started showing me various videos of his. Because I appreciate indie rap, Dan Bull’s work steadily grew on me. He is prolific, intelligent, and a good writer and rapper.
And he has autism.
Instead of focusing on the negative, Dan explains through rapping that his Asperger’s has helped him become a poet. He doesn’t sugar-coat his personal experiences, however. Dan also explains that because of his autism some things make him feel uncomfortable–like large crowds.
As someone who personally is on the autism spectrum, I find it comforting to know that Dan welcomes his autism, instead of saying that it hinders him.
