RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Diverging from the current trend of “anti-establishment” Brazilian rap music spitting angry rhymes against the system (as he knows how to do), in his new album Amarelo, Emicida takes a more philosophical stance; with measured responses, offering a warm hug to his fans.
“I wanted to create a message to share with the whole world….we need to look for human connections” he tells The Rio Times. He uses the universal symbols of love, connection and tolerance - all represented by the colour yellow - as a fight against depression and suicide to pave a new path . . .
