16933949_1258523750863844_21170497_nA SPANISH rapper has been sent to prison for his song lyrics.

Mallorcan Josep Miquel Arenas, also known as Valtonyc, has been sentenced to three and a half years for threats, glorifying terrorism and insulting the crown. 

The rapper published videos on YouTube during 2012 and 2013 in which lyrics supported and justified terrorist organisations such as ETA, encouraging the group to recommence attacks.

Other lyrics also reference King Juan Carlos and the president of the Balearics Jorge Campos.

“If I had known I would have killed someone, it would have been cheaper,” Arenas said in a tweet.

  1. This sentence just goes to show how represive and fascist is the Spanish state, that it hurts the feelings of the establishment is one thing but to give him three and a half years for a song for expressing his thought is another.when the ex kings daughter and son in law can steal nearly 10 million euros and not go to jail or face any punishment is another case of a fascist state

  2. Sorry Josep need to be responsible for your actions. If your going to be an AS—LE then the consequences is three and a half years Prison. By the way if you had killed someone you would have got longer. Now Rapp to that!
