Russian rap is a Russian music genre that emerged under the influence of Western music and combines elements of rap and hip-hop.
Today, the most advanced rap artists in Russia are considered to be groups: CENTR, AK-47, Kasta, TGK and others. Performers and bands that have just started their careers are also very popular.
In addition to performing in Russian, Russian hip-hop is characterized by a variety of lyrical digressions in the texts. The basis of some tracks is folk music, which gives color to the compositions. Also often due to the reflection of social and political problems, it is possible to allegorically express the Russian character and mentality.
