A music video made in Venezuela this year calls attention to a special kind of crime: corruption by Venezuelan police.
Two rappers who go by the names Apache and Canserbero show themselves driving a beat-up Lincoln, maybe from the 1970s. They’re pulled over at a checkpoint by cops who want cash.
The video, “Stop,” has been played 1.6 million times on YouTube. It strikes a chord in a country suffering from severe crime and corruption. Morning Edition heard about the video as it was released this spring, and sat down with both men in the eighth-floor office where they work.
