As ‘Death to America’ Chants Lose Power, Iran Retools Propaganda With Rap Videos

Iranian clerics have long insisted that rap music is the devil’s work, but they had no complaints when Amir Tataloo, a rapper with a hard-partying, gangster-style reputation, turned into a nationalistic admirer of Iran’s military effort in the Persian Gulf. Standing on the Damavand, a frigate in the Caspian Sea, Mr. Tataloo sings that “an armed Persian Gulf” is Iran’s “absolute right.”

I gotta side with the clerics on this one.
