"Funk still hasn’t happened. When I was a child nobody listened to funk inside the slums. Nowadays it is the main soundtrack. Today’s children will make funk happen. In a country as diverse as Brazil, with things like capoeira and maxixe, we need to bring together different ideas into funk. We want to unite funk and hip-hop, giving funk a little bit more of the ‘conscience’ that hip-hop has,” says MC Leonardo.
