Reuters: “Putin, wearing a turtleneck sweater and jacket, went on stage to present awards to participants in ‘Battle for Respect,’ a hip-hop music contest run by Muz TV, a Russian rival to MTV. ‘It would have been cool to record a joint track with Vladimir Putin because he is a legendary man and our idol,’ sang rapper Zhigan who won the contest. "Let's make so much noise in his honor that the whole world can hear."
After presenting an award to the hip-hop personality who showed him the greatest sycophantic deference, Vladimir Vladimirovich then offered his 50 cents on the genre:
"I do not think that 'top-rock' or 'down-rock' breakdance technique is compatible with alcohol or drugs," Putin said.
Yo, Putin. I'm really happy for you. And I'm gonna let you finish, but Nancy Reagan had the best "Say No to Drugs" PSA of all time!
