China Shuts Down Jay-Z

China has dropped Jay-Z's concert this month in Shanghai. Apparently the Culture Ministry wants to protect fans from the vulgar language in his songs. His fans must be so disappointed, what a let down. Here's more:

"Some of Jay-Z's songs contain too much vulgar language," the state-run Shanghai Daily newspaper quoted Sun Yun, of promoter KS Production Co., as saying to explain the ministry's reason for refusing permission for the Oct. 23 concert.

The New York rapper's use of profanity and songs about drug dealers, pimps and violence apparently offended the culture czars, who have recently allowed other groups with sexually suggestive songs, such as The Rolling Stones and the Black Eyed Peas, to perform in Shanghai.

China may have cancelled Jay-Z, but Africa has welcomed the two with open arms. Beyonce and Jay-Z performed this weekend for Nigeria's first annual ThisDay Music Festival. More pics so

they let the stones play, but they wouldn't let them play certain songs they deemed to racy. It must be strange to have everything so censored.
