Oksimiron and Roman Zhigan
Today, a new interview was released on the YouTube channel of Ksenia Sobchak – with rapper Roma Zhigan (real name – Roman Chumakov. – Ed.). One of the main topics of the interview was his long-standing conflict with the rapper Oksimiron (real name – Miron Fedorov. – Ed.), Which became known thanks to Oksimiron's new song “Who Killed Mark?” and a clip on it.
Zhigan praised the new clip of Oksimiron highly:
Cool video, cool idea, cool music. Oxy is a thoughtful, cunning person. He talks about those things that literally everyone knows about, with a huge dose of pathos, and breaks the charts,
Recall that in this song Oksimiron talked about a long-standing conflict with the rapper, when Zhigan and his friends broke into the apartment where Oksimiron and the rapper Shokk were, and, threatening with weapons, forced them to kneel down and slapped both of them. He filmed all this on camera.

All these years, Oksimiron was silent about what had happened, as he was afraid that Zhigan would merge the video into the network, which would damage Miron's reputation. In the new video, he himself showed the moment with a slap in the face.
According to Zhigan, he wrote to Oksimiron on the VKontakte social network on the day of the premiere of the video and praised the video. After that, they phoned and talked for a long time.
We talked with him for half an hour, talked on various topics. I expected that there would be a share of negativity and a share of such a defensive posture in the conversation. No. I say: “I watched your video, wrote to you in VK that the clip is not bad,”
– said Zhigan.

However, he said that the song and the video were far from the truth.
In fact, this is all a lie, a lie. He arranged everything so that people would say: “Wow, damn it, Miron, how cool you are! Zhigan is Moriarty, Zhigan is a terrible villain”,
– he said.
In addition, the rapper presented his version of the events of 2011, when he made Oksimiron and Shokk apologize on their knees.
10 years ago, something happened in his life that prevented him from going to bed peacefully. When he woke up, he thought about it, because a person was faced with such experiences and upheavals that not everyone could cope with. And he failed. I was not going to humiliate them. I went to get an apology for the insults addressed to me. I didn't think what the consequences would be after that. Then I was young, then the visor was closed, and I went to fight,
– said Zhigan.
He added that he was not going to blackmail Oksimiron with the video, and said that after the incident they remained in normal relations.
Let Oxy remember how we spent our time at the bar. We shook hands. I put him in a taxi, he went to the airport and flew to London. He apologized and I gave him my word that he would not see himself on the Internet,
– he concluded.
