Russian Rap Humpday Thing: Siberian Syndicate

May 6, 2009

Take a generic gangster rap crew from the early 1990s, beat them with the stupid stick and shake off any remnants of talent.  Then load them into a rusty Lada* headed all the way to Omsk.

What you get is Siberian Syndicate, a sophomoronic set barking out misses like “Stop Me” and “Gangbanger.”

*Said vehicle is featured in the second video.



  1. Youtube led me from those vids to this one, and I don’t know what they’re saying but I’m pretty sure it creeps me out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEPylezri2M

  2. Jay, I don’t think you need to know Russia to get that video, as your creep-o-meter rightly detected.

  3. I was particularly bothered by the gratuitous rrrrrrrr rolling by the third guy in “stop me”.

    But the second video definitely takes creepy to a whole new level.

    I guess I just prefer the more introspective romantic Russian rap. It reminds me of all the “я люблю тебя” graffiti in Moscow. Or is the spring just getting to me?

  4. Buster,

    Haven’t dug around in a while… catching up. Wanted to know if you caught this a week ago? What make you of this?
