AllMusic Review by

Brazil 1 features numerous Brazilian rap artists, all of whom pledge their allegiance to their people and their culture. This is meaningful music intended for contemplation; however, it's also very lively and energetic, so you find it to be enjoyable as well as enlightening. The production is somewhat low-budget, but this ironically works in the music's favor, making it seem even more sincere rather than commercial. Some of the featured performances include X's "Encarcerado," Mv. Bill's "A Escolha É Sua," Xis' "A Fuga," Gog's "Um Simples José," and others. The CD booklet includes all the lyrics, which is a nice bonus given the political nature of the album.
