Funk Carioca / Rap

Now, I'm not a big rap fan, but rap is quite popular in Brazil now, so I suppose I'll expose myself. RACIONAIS MC's are a group of four guys (with pretty funny names for themselves {Mano Brown, Ice Blue, Edy Rock & DJ KL Jay}) hailing from the favelas (slums) of São Paulo. (I had to copy and paste cuz i like the tilde over the a; now my font is probably fucked up). Guess what they rap about? Gangster lifestyles and social injustices. Anyway, the guy has a pretty nice voice and this probably isn't their best song example because the beat is sort of weak, but I like it because the lyrics are translated. That makes it, well, interesting. So long, Brazil, or should I say, Tchau (ciao).
