The longest-running government shutdown has led to a hike in TSA agents calling out of work due to a lack of checks, and airports are subsequently experiencing longer security lines, People reports. But at New York City's John F. Kennedy Airport, at the very least, the music is lit.
Multiple passengers boarding flights at JFK Airport have tweeted about hearing uncensored versions of rap music over the loudspeakers, including Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” and Kanye West’s “Lift Yourself.”

I was in JFK at 6:30am the other day and they were playing that poopty scoop Kanye song and I felt like I was in the twilight zone— Tracee Ellis Ross Jr (@virghoe_) January 9, 2019
JFK airport carousel blasting “No Sleep Til Brooklyn” at 10:30 PM is kinda alright with me.— RL Barnes, Ph.D. (@DigitalHistory_) January 7, 2019
But on the eve of New Year's Eve is when the musical selections got really real:
Love that they’re playing an extended version of the iCarly theme song in the TSA secruity check line at JFK right now. Really just love this whole situation— Danika’s cool tweeting alias (@eternal_scouts) December 30, 2018
According to Business Insider, TSA agents control which music is played in specific terminals, and it’s clear somebody was making the best out of an unpaid situation.
