Flávio Renegado

*State:: Minas Gerais
Track: Sai Fora
Album: Minha Tribo é o Mundo (2012)
Label: Self-released


Flavio Renegado has a very open approach to his hip hop, mixing in Afrobeat, maracatu and electronica, and this track has a real samba feel, from his latest album Minha Tribo é o Mundo (my tribe is the world). Flavio started out rapping as a teenager in his neighbourhood Alto Vera Cruz and he still runs a community project there when he’s not on tour. I saw his show at Back2Black festival, he’s super-focused, super-smiley. You get the sense he’s on a mission to make connections, really receptive to new sounds.
