When DJ Altair Gonçalves and breakdancer Humberto Martins met in 1980, they didn't know they would be one of the first Brazilian hip-hop duos, Thaíde & DJ Hum. In 1988, they managed to get onto the collection Hip Hop Cultura de Rua with their songs "Corpo Fechado" and "Homens da Lei." The good performance of the songs in the dance tracks brought them an immediate invitation for their first solo album, Pergunte a Quem Conhece, released in 1989, and followed by three others. One of their biggest hits is "Sr. Tempo Bom" (from Preste Atenção, 1996). The duo continues to be popular in its live performances in São Paulo nightclubs.
