Founded in 1988, Racionais MC’s is formed by rappers Mano Brown, Ice Blue, Edi Rock and KL Jay.

The songs of Racionais, primarily, demonstrate the concern to denounce the destruction of the lives of black and poor young people from the Brazilian peripheries – in addition to the involvement of racism in sustaining misery and violence.
