MV Bill is Brazil’s most controversial rapper, and polemical hero of the Rio Hip-Hop movement. He is also a resident of the favela, City of God. MV Bill is a powerful cultural warrior in the fight for social justice. His videoclips are always polemic and very well produced. His music mixes the rage of a war cry into anthems for the lost and doomed youth of Rio’s violent conflicts.
