But then, I really hate rap music.

Quote

Vladimir Putin says Russia must control 'degrading' rap music.

The Russian president has told a meeting of cultural leaders that they must come up with a means to "lead it and direct it".

Vladimir Putin is not a fan of rap music

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he wants to control the popularity of rap music so that it does not lead to "the degradation of the nation".

Alarmed by the growing fondness people in his country have for the genre, Mr Putin has told a meeting of cultural leaders in St Petersburg that they must come up with a means to "lead it and direct it".

He acknowledged that attempting to ban rap in Russia would likely prove futile, as "protest" is one of its "three pillars" alongside "sex" and "drugs".

The latter is what Mr Putin said he was particularly concerned about, as he said any efforts to glamourise the use of drugs was "a path to the degradation of the nation".

He added that he considered "drug propaganda" to be worse than cursing.
 
His comments come amid a crackdown on contemporary music in Russia, with a rapper known as Husky having been arrested last month after staging an impromptu gig on top of a car.

The 25-year-old - who has garnered more than six million views on YouTube - put on the performance after a planned concert was cancelled because prosecutors deemed it to contain elements of "extremism".

Husky is known for rapping about poverty, corruption and police brutality.

Other Russian artists affected by the crackdown include rapper Gone.Fludd, who cancelled two concerts after coming under pressure from "every police agency you can imagine," and the popular hip hop artist Allj, who scrapped a show in the Arctic city of Yakutsk after receiving threats of violence.

Pop star Monetochka and punk band Friendzona have also had gigs shut down in the last month.
