AFP reports that Mohammad Dashtgoli, the official for evaluation of music at the Culture and Islamic Guidance Ministry, plans to launch a crackdown on rap music. “There is nothing wrong with this type of music in itself,” Dashtgoli was quoted as saying. “But due to the use of obscene words by its singers this music has been categorized as illegal. In coordination with the police, illegal studios producing this type of music will be sealed and the singers in this genre will be confronted.”
