Cuba: Imprisoned and tortured rapper suffers stroke

Where is there a rich, influential, and powerful American rapper so willing to tell it like it is when you need one to speak out? Here is another victim of Jay-Z's gracious hosts in Cuba that he is not rapping about.

Imprisoned Cuban Rapper Suffers a Stroke

Cuban political prisoner Marcos Maikel Lima Cruz collapsed this afternoon and suffered a stroke at La Providencia Prison in eastern Cuba.

He is in grave health and has been sent to a nearby hospital.

Lima Cruz, 35-years old, was arrested on Christmas Day 2010 for celebrating a party and waving a Cuban flag while playing hip-hop songs critical of the Castro regime by the hip-hop duo, Los Aldeanos.

His father believes he suffered the stroke due to the stress and suffering he has been subject to in Castro's prisons.

Amnesty International has declared Marcos Maikel Lima Cruz a prisoner of conscience.
