Song of the Day: Rappin’ Hood “Sou Negrão”

Rappin' Hood

“Sou Negrão” by Rappin’ Hood is an irresistible Brazilian samba song in praise of positivity. Not speaking Portuguese all I know about the message in the song is what I can glean from goggle translate. Essentially a black power song in the tradition of James Brown and Public Enemy with a recounting of celebrated black roll models and leaders. Not the kind of song that packs that ultra high tempo energy of peak time samba tracks but you’d be hard pressed to sit this one out!
