With fake-diamond studs lining his lips and ears, and a tattoo carved under his dreadlocks, Omar Sayut is hard to miss. His version of Cuban hip-hop is what you might call hard to miss too.

"Down with Raul! Down with Raul!" he chants in a video performance, referring to the president of Cuba, Raul Castro.

In another, he portrays himself as Christ, being crucified on a palm tree.

They / stole / my / freedom....

They / stole / my / youth.

All I want is a raise

So the government will stop stealing....

Yo / yo / yo.... 

No, nothing subtle here.
