This Uber driver has a playlist for stereotypical riders
Forget the AUX cord
Have you ever had the sharp realization after getting into an Uber with friends that your driver is judging you? Well, in this North Carolina ride-share, there is no doubt about it.
21-year-old TJ Jones from Asheville has created a series of Spotify playlists that define every type of passenger. From "white dudes who look like they rap" to "early 20s fem," this driver has tunes to get you from point A to B in the most stereotypical way.
Jones tweeted a screenshot of his playlists saying, "So I just started driving for Uber and Lyft and I’ve been getting a lot more compliments on my music since generalizing my passengers by 1 of these 11 playlists."

After the Tweet got over 200,000 likes, Jones told Mashable, "Was pretty wild to have that tweet and my Spotify account go viral, never thought my music taste was all that great but gaining 12,000 Spotify followers was pretty convincing of the opposite," he said.
Though he may be generalizing, the playlists are shockingly spot on. Check out Jones' Spotify page here to see what he would play for you.
