I’M going to SING MY MUSIC: Basta, Oxxxymiron, Noize MC. A concert of solidarity. In our country, the frequent cancellation of the concerts and intimidating performers. Artists blame the problems of society, because it’s easier than to deal with these problems. Creativity is a reflection of reality, sometimes crooked, sometimes true, but not reality itself. It cannot be taken literally. 12 days of arrest now serving in Krasnodar rapper Husky in whose texts see propaganda for what is not there, blocked the clip and ripped off a series of concerts. Future concerts are also in jeopardy, and therefore called into question his freedom of expression, and an honest living. It’s chaos. We may not share the views of Husky do not understand his music or the action, but it should support him in this difficult time. Therefore, since he is unable to speak right now and earn yourself, we’re giving a concert of solidarity and list to him all the proceeds.
