Hip hop can get you in trouble…in Russia

Evidently, a young army lieutenant in the Russian forces made a little rap video complaining about conditions at his barracks (and rightly so, they look freakin terrible)

The BBC article about it does make some pretty funny accusations:

However, the army appears to have shown its disapproval, by posting the soldier to Ussuriysk, which is home to a military school, a statue of Lenin and, according to guide books, lots of trees.

It’s hard to believe that banishment to Siberia is still a threat used in Russia, but it looks like it is.  And the army lieutenant has a point.  Conditions for these soldiers are indeed pretty terrible, but I guess this really pissed off his superiors.  Check out the video below (of course it’s set to Stan by Eminem)
