Back in April, The Block was visited by Emicida—a growing star in the Brazilian rap landscape known for his prodigious capacity of winning rap improvisation duels and for his shameless mix of rhythms. Emicida favors topics that are not common in Brazilian rap and unlike many of his colleagues, he is moderate in his complaints about poverty and violence. Even if the poverty of his home shantytown is present in his songs – “Considering I bit a dog for food, I came a long way” -, Emicida is more interested in poetry and hope.
Today on an EVR Special Show at 12pm ET, Emicida will once again be live in the studio alongside Hannah Rad for an exclusive interview and general "hang session". We're keeping our fingers crossed for another freestyle, because nothing really sounds as good on a Thursday afternoon as some slick-lipped Portugese flowing off the mic. Watch a clip of his last stop in here below, and for more on Emicida, visit his official web site, follow him on Twitter or peep his Facebook.
