There are some problems the Russian government has with the rap music of the country. The lyrics would glorify drugs and sex, advocate crime and armed violence. And since, according to Putin, bans would only have the opposite effect, the Kremlin is supposed to “control” this genre a little. However, he does not reveal how exactly this should look like.
Some appearances of musicians were therefore also cancelled, among the affected the russian rapper Husky. But he didn’t want to let that sit on his head and spontaneously arranged a small concert on a car roof. Everything for his fans. The young man even went to prison for that. But not for long: the planned prison stay of 12 days was shortened due to protests and the rapper was released early.
