Iran Bans Rap Concerts; Claim Music is “Problematic”

Posted By on January 8, 2015

Apparently, Hip Hop is not welcomed in Iran. At all. According to The Jerusalem Post, the Middle East country has put a ban on rap concerts.

Iran’s spokesman for its Ministry of Culture and Islamic guidance, Hussein Noosh- Abbad, told the newspaper the music causes trouble and they are ready to do what is needed to make sure it doesn’t take place on their land.

“This music encourages wild behavior that could have a detrimental effect on society,” Noosh- Abbadi said.

“We don’t want to have it,” he said. “And we will prevent any unwanted incidents normally associated with such concerts and other events.”
