Racionais MC’s: From the Streets of São Paulo 2022 Movie Review

Armed with music and a message, influential hip-hop group Racionais MC’s turned their street poetry into a powerful movement in Brazil and beyond

Racionais MC’s: From the Streets of São Paulo is a documentary about Racionais MC’s, the Brazilian hip-hop group, in which we will get a glimpse of their background, and what inspired them. They are known for their controversial lyrics and music that has managed to transcend the borders.

Led by the hip-hop group, the stories of its members, we travel to São Paolo, explore particular neighborhoods of this immense city, and are told about how it was in the good old days.

An interesting documentary that beyond providing us with a social portrait so present in the group’s lyrics, we are introduced to their backgrounds. If you like hip-hop, this documentary will not let you down. And if you are interested in sociology it will be equally appealing.

They discuss samba, candomblé (yep), James Brown, Dr. Dre and others that have influenced them and their music. Yes, it is unique.
