Emicida was chosen by rap. He's scaled to the best team. In his songs, he talks about what he sees, what he lives and what he feels.I could take other verses of him to tell his own story. After all, it's all there. His childhood, the beginning of rap, his father, his mother, the birth of his daughter, the trip to Africa, lessons that changed his life completely.
But the important thing here is to see how that trait says a lot about where he is today. Emicida turns your story into everyone's story. It is not by chance that his sound went beyond his neighborhood, his city, his country, his continent.
When he talks about putting his dreams in his backpack and going out selling a CD at 2 reais, everyone feels more confident in putting themselves as they want in the world. When you show your steadfastness to face racism, the message goes beyond: no one is going to take down the rights. And these are just two examples.
Particular and universal in his lyrics, he also advanced in sound. He put national rap in dialogue with Brazilian music. Not as an accessory, not as import, but as part of him. In samba de breque, in the northeastern repentistas, spoken music is in the DNA. His show today does not fall into rock, does not fall into samba, falls in a new style he found.
At the same time, he put rap to re-engage with the television, newspapers and new stages. He may not even be directly responsible for the success of a lot of the names of the new generation of national rap, but he helped to break down many walls that these new artists no longer have to face. And just notice how rap is more present out there.
