Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

Hip-hop traveled from the boogie-down Bronx to the black, brown, and beige country of Brazil, where the same themes of violence, Afrocentric pride, and ghetto life are the syncopated soundtracks for millions of poor favela dwellers. This compilation features rappers and turntable specialists from Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro who stay true to game and flip the script with their extensions and experiments with the genre. Possemente Zulu's "Sou Negrao" has a call-and-response vocal riff that recalls Naughty by Nature's Hip Hop Hooray, and Thaíde & DJ Hum's "Tempo Bom" samples the R&B classic Mr. Big Stuff. Conversely, Personagens's "No Corpo a Coisa Pega" swings with the samba and Xis's "Us Mano E as Mina" is buoyed by reggae-fied rhythms. From Chico Science's innovative production, to Elza Soares's new-school version of the Tropicalia standard, "Haiti," the Brazilianization of our music continues. --Eugene Holley, Jr.

BRAZILIAN HIPHOP opens with a surreal Beatles-like drone of electronica with echo and repeat, then merges smoothly from scratch echo to the hiphop chants of Se Tu Lutas the Conguistas in 'Somos Nos a Justica'.

 You may think a knowledge of Portuguese would be essential to a Brazilian hiphop collection: not so: even without such, BRAZILIAN HIPHOP shines with its blend of Latin foundations and new, modern singers.

For some reason, the style of rap here is very dated. Better of listen to French, Japanese or Spanish language hip hop instead. The flow here is lousy and disjointed. I have an old Portugese hip hop cd over 11 yrs old and the rap flow there is by far better than this. Look for something else
