Not content with the text and photo evidence of Russia's Olympic woes, Chicago-based rapper and producer Jesús Sandoval Jr. has come up with what he calls "the official frustration anthem for my komrades in Sochi." It's called, appropriately, "Sochi Sucks."
The song, posted to YouTube yesterday, is a hilarious '80s-tuned roundup of Sochi's most-reported ailments: polluted water, stray dogs, human rights abuses. "Stray dogs roamin' everywhere, a sense of danger in the air," Sandoval rhymes at one point, over pictures of Putin and unfinished construction sites. (Some of the pictures, notably, are not actually from Sochi — more on that here.) It's a parody of the 1985 Phil Collins hit "Sussudio."
