Battle of the 1Bands


Emicida was born in 1985, in São Paulo, where he lives and performs his art. Since he released his first mixtape, “Pra Quem Já Mordeu um Cachorro por Comida, até que Eu Cheguei Longe...” (As someone who has even bitten a dog for food, I’ve got far…) in 2009, the rapper has built a trajectory conducted as a social experiment. Thus, he did not limit his creation to music. Through “Laboratório Fantasma”, a company that emerged to manage his career, but which today acts as an entertainment and transforming content platform, he leaves his mark on music, fashion, literature, society and every project to which he dedicates himself. Rapper, writer, entrepreneur, presenter and contemporary thinker, Emicida has two children's books released: "Amoras" (“Blackberries” - 2018) and "E Foi Assim Que Eu e a Escuridão Ficamos Amigas" (“And That's How The Darkness And I Became Friends” - 2020), in addition to an anthology that celebrates 10 years of his first mixtape. He made history in the three fashion shows he held at SPFW, Brazil's main fashion week, bringing representativeness to the catwalk. In his musical work, he builds up partnerships with Caetano Veloso, Wilson das Neves, Zeca Pagodinho, Vanessa da Mata and Pabllo Vittar, among others. Emicida’s discography also lists the mixtape “Emicídio” (2010), the EPs “Sua Mina Ouve Meu Rep Tamem” (2010), “Doozicabraba e a Revolução Silenciosa” (2011) and the albums “O Glorioso Retorno de Quem Nunca Esteve Aqui” (2013), “Sobre Crianças, Quadris, Pesadelos e Lições de Casa” (2015) and “AmarElo” (2019). The latter even won the Latin Grammy in the category Best Rock or Alternative Music Album in Portuguese Language and elevated it to the pantheon of Brazilian music. AmarElo also marked history for its launch concert, as it has taken place at Theatro Municipal de São Paulo. The presentation served as the conducting wire for the celebrated documentary “AmarElo – É Tudo Pra Ontem”, available on Netflix and audio apps.
