Question About Russia/Eastern Europe
« on: April 09, 2012, 03:47:32 AM »
A bit random and not too serious, but I was listening to the songs by 'Pussy Riot' and although I could hardly understand any of the lyrics, I could tell from the feel that it was very rebellious in nature. I also did some research on my own and discovered that rebellious music like punk/metal and rock is becoming popular in many CIS republics and it got me wondering; has hip-hop arrived in eastern Europe yet? I mean, since rebellious music seems to be trendy over there right now, I was wondering if Russia has developed its own form of socially conscious or 'gangsta' hip-hop about their present situations. This is what happened in the United States with hip-hop in the 1990s when racism reached a boiling point with the LA riots and Rodney King and everything. I'd personally love to see how the younger generations of rebellious teenagers in the CIS would like acts like Public Enemy, N.W.A, Tupac Shakur or Ice Cube. And, if none of these people are popular over there, do they have their own equivelants?
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

IDK about Russia but there is a Belarusian group Чырвоным па Белым (Red over White). They emerged in 2004.

There is plenty of Russian rap that can be found on YouTube:

Mnogotochie
1 Kla$
UG

And the ubiquitous Serega.  (I think he is a bit overplayed.)

1 Kla$ is easily the best rap group I've heard.  I am including Dr. Dre in this, unfortunately, as he is the greatest of the American rappers, IMHO.  They almost have a Busta Rhymes feel about them.

It disappoints me that you know so much about this.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

What's with the sample from the Metallica song?
