Criolo - Espiral de Ilusão

Criolo Doido is originally from the Grajaú neighborhood, (São Paulo). He began rapping in 1989, but until the beginning of the 2000s he was virtually unknown. He worked as an educator between 1994 and 2000. In 2006, he released his first studio album, titled "Ainda Há Tempo". The songs “RAP é forte”, Morto Vivo, Ainda Há Tempo, Até Me Emocionei (with Bastardo, former member of SNJ) and Chuva Accida stand out. In that same year he founded the Rinha dos MC's existing until today. It includes freestyle battles, weekly concerts, graffiti exhibitions and photographs. The following year, he participated in the "Som Brasil Especial" in homage to Vinícius de Moraes; and he was nominated for the Hutúz Prize in two categories: "Grupo ou Artist Solo" (who lost to GOG) and "Revelação" (defeated by U-Time). In 2008, he received the "Song of the Year" and "Personality of the Year" award in the fourth edition of the "O rap é compromisso" event.

The following year, he was again nominated for the Prêmio Hutúz in the category "Revelations of the Decade", but he did not win. He participated in the documentaries "Profissão MC", by Alessandro Buzo and Tony Nogueira; and "Da Luz às Trevas", by Ney Matogrosso. To commemorate his twenty-year career, he recorded a live DVD in the "Rinha dos MC's", which was released for sale in 2010, called "Criolo Doido Live in SP". At the end of the year, Criolo released a single CD, with the songs "Grajauex" (tribute to his neighborhood) and "Subirusdoistiozin", recorded in studio, with the production of Marcelo Cabral and Daniel Ganjaman and with instruments such as guitar, bass, piano and trumpet, giving indications of a small modification of his style. Both songs were announced as presents not their next album, through the launch concert held at the Matilha Cultural. A few days later, the video clip of "Subirusdoistiozin" was released on the internet, lasting more than 6 minutes.

In 2011 he released his second album, "Nó na Orelha" (Knot in the ear), free of charge through the internet and abbreviated his stage name to "Criolo". On the album, the singer diversified the rhythms of rap with several others, such as MPB, funk, soul and blues. This album had excellent reception by critics (including foreigners), leading Criolo to participate in the "High Hours" program of the "Rede Globo" and to be on top of the trending topics of twitter. With the album, Criolo was one of the MTV Brazil Music Music 2011 champions, in the "Video Clip of the Year" categories, with "Subirusdoistiozin", "Artist of the Year", "Album of the Year", with "Nó na Orelha "(won)," Music of the Year "with" There is no love in SP "(won), and as" Banda ou Artist Revelation "(won). He was also the first confirmed to perform live during the awards, where he sang the song "There is no love in SP" with Caetano Veloso.
