(AllHipHop News) Government leaders in China are making moves to ban hip-hop music from television and radio airwaves.
Authorities with the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film, and Television of the People’s Republic of China are attempting to stop the spread of the genre and other forms of expression they have deemed vulgar.
According to state-run Xinhua News, television broadcast stations are being advised not to feature any artist with tattoos, and to cool it with the Hip Hop performances.
The news comes after a pair of raunchy performances by hip-hop artists PG One and GAI, which were condemned by the Communist Party.
The crackdown comes as China experiences an explosion of hip-hop culture in the country, as groups like Higher Brothers are finding international success, while the show "Rap of China" has dominated television ratings over the past year.
