Iran has declared rap music illegal and says it will hunt down rap artists who attempt to reach local audiences.
"There is nothing wrong with this type of music in itself," the official for evaluation of music at the culture and Islamic guidance ministry told Iran's IRNA news agency.
"But due to the use of obscene words by its singers this music has been categorized as illegal," he said.
"The Islamic republic's hardline officials have repeatedly complained about a "cultural invasion" by "decadent" Western music, which they believe contravenes Islamic values."
