Russian Rapper Jailed for Anti-Police Song

A court in Volgograd sentenced rap musician Ivan Alexeyev, best known as Noize MC, to “administrative arrest” (short-term imprisonment imposed for minor offences) on “hooliganism” charges. During a concert in Volgograd, Alexeyev performed his song “Kuri Bambuk,” which is highly critical of the police, and made mocking remarks in the direction of the police security guards present at the concert. Right after the concert, Alexeyev was taken into custody by the police and was sentenced to ten days in jail the next day.
