Russian Rap and Russian Hip Hop

As with the many other countries in the world producing their own regionalized Hip Hop, Russia is emerging with it’s own vodka induced (excuse the stereotype) material. Russian Hip Hop also includes former Soviet states as Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

The pioneers of Russian rap were a group called Malchishnik (???????????, Russian for “bachelor party”), but the recognition of the rap genre came with the rise of Bad Balance and their album Naletchiki Bad B. released in 1994.

MVRemix is looking to partner with Russian writers to get involved with the Russian scene. If you’re interested, please click here.

We’re looking for writers to review albums, shows and interview Russian artists.
