SHANGHAI, China China’s Culture Ministry has nixed a concert this month by rap artist Jay-Z at Shanghai’s Hongkou Stadium, citing a need to protect local hip-hop fans from nasty lyrics, a report said Wednesday.

“Some of Jay-Z’s songs contain too much vulgar language,” the state-run Shanghai Daily newspaper quoted Sun Yun, of promoter KS Production Co., as saying to explain the ministry’s reason for refusing permission for the Oct. 23 concert…..

China needs to lean back and listen to some updated lyrics which tend to be more tame, damn communist. Let the people hear what they want, you can’t stop hip-hop from tapping into the biggest market out there, they are listening to “nasty” lyrics anyway. SMH@ the “government knows best” thinking and political model.
