Vladimir Putin doesn’t like rap music. But he doesn’t want to ban it, he wants to control it.

At a meeting in St. Petersburg with cultural advisers on Dec. 15, the Russian president said “rap is based on three pillars: sex, drugs and protest.” He said he is most worried about drugs in rap music. He called it “a path to the degradation of the nation.”

He said “drug propaganda is worse than cursing.”

But Putin said that if the government tries to ban rap artists from performing, it will have an adverse effect and make them more popular.

“If it is impossible to stop (rap music), then we must lead it and direct it,” he said.

In recent weeks, popular music concerts have been shut down, including one for the rapper Husky in the southern Russian city of Krasnodar. He tried to put on an impromptu performance as a protest, but was arrested before he could start the performance. (AP)
