Noize MC, a social rapper who has targeted bureaucrats, corrupt politicians and police officers in his songs, was jailed on hooliganism charges in Volgograd for verbally abusing police during a live show to thousands of fans.
The conflict started when police officers attempted to stop the group’s drummer, Pavel Teterin, from collecting coins from a crowd with his baseball cap during a concert Saturday, said Alexander Berger, spokesman for Noize MC, whose real name is Ivan Alexeyev.
“Citizen Alexeyev used foul language to address the policemen providing security at the concert, telling them to bugger off and performed this song for them,” the police spokesman said Tuesday, RIA-Novosti reported.
