Hip-hop hides many mysteries, many little commented stories and many anonymous characters. Brazilian hip-hop also conceals these mysteries and some controversies about its birth.

On the one hand, artists such as Miele, Gerson King Combo, Os Tarântulas, Equipe Rádio Cidade already made their contribution to Rap, often creating portuguese versions for American Rap of the Old School phase, such as "Rappers Delight" which in Brazil has won interpretations of Miele and Equipe Rádio Cidade, for example.

In 1984, with the explosion of the so-called "Break Dance" in the world and with the appearance of the videos of Malcom Mclaren "Buffalo Gals" and Lionel Ritchie "All Night Long", besides films like Breakin "and Beat Street, especially in São Paulo, a few artists dialoguing with the aesthetics of Electro.At this stage, we had in Brazil the Rap with a positive message, festive, with themes related to dance, b-boys, the wave of that moment, "Breakin ' ".

Records such as "Break de Rua", from Villa Box, "Mas Que Linda Estás", from Black Juniors, for example, marked the Brazilian Rap in this period, in this musical cycle that comprises the middle of the 1980s, considering that Electro is a style within Hip-Hop. In homage to the classic "World Famous" by Maclom Mclaren & World Famous Supreme Team, a version for this song appeared in Brazil in 1984, sung by a singer unknown with the pseudonym Sasha and produced by Eduardo Assad, the same producer of the record of the Black Juniors and made possible by the Brazilian DJ based in Brazil, Mr. Sam. So, if we stop to think, we have two phases within the spectrum of (early) Brazilian hip-hop: Old School Rap/Disco Rap (1979-1982) and Electro Funk/Electro Rap/Breakdance (1984-1985).

However, in the view of many adherents of hip-hop culture in Brazil, the records of these early stages of Brazilian hip-hop were made before people understood what hip-hop culture was in the country. After concepts about hip-hop were more defined in the country, in the wake of the records of the so-called "Golden Era" in the USA and the popularization of Rap music in the world, in São Paulo, between 1987 and 1988, three compilations with different artists Rap music. Are they: "Kaskatas": A Ousadia do Rap (1987), "Cultura de Rua" and "O Som das Ruas". The three compilations brought together the word "street" in their titles, alluding to the original stage of hip-hop: the streets.

In this third phase of Rap in Brazil, which included the late 1980s and early 1990s, which took shape in parallel with the period of popularization of US Rap in the world, the 1988 "Street Culture" record status of bringing the first letters of Brazilian Rap with social context, in the same way that Grand Master Flash & The Furious 5's classic "The Message" brought social criticism to the US Rap in 1982. However, the first Brazilian album made only of rap music, and for only one group, without being a compilation or single, was the record of the Região Abissal, "Hip Rap Hop", of 1988.

The record was released by a major label, the Continental. Curiously, because the producers in Brazil were not yet set to produce rap music at that time, the recording had no samples, that is, it was recorded with bases composed of synthesizers and electronic drums, with arrangements by musician Ricardo Maita, who now works with a band called "Clube do Balanço". In short, the record was made in 1988, but its recording form rescues the records that the group's members listened to and were inspired by, such as the first records of Mantronix, 2 Live Crew, that did not yet have samples. Hip-Hop records made before 1986, before the era of samples.

Highlight for the romantic track called "Amor Inovou", which is a beautiful, relaxed rap with an interesting metric and long instrumental parts with great synth melodies, electronic drum tones and a small beatbox. The track called "Feminina Mulher", from their 1990 ep, has the same essence: a beautiful rap, with a theme directed at women. Something rare in today's rappers' imagination. By chance, this is my favorite group track.
