Portuguese hip hop (Hip hop português) more usually known as Hip Hop Tuga is the Portuguese variety of hip hop music.

Hip Hop Tuga is different from mainstream hip hop because it has strong influences from African music from Lusophone Africa, reggae, zouk and Portuguese fado. It is often performed by African-Portuguese artists, descendants from African immigrants that came to Portugal after the independence of its former African colonies. Artists such as Valete, Sam the Kid, Dillaz, Pacman (Carlão), Xeg, Regula, Mind The Gap, Matozoo, Snake, Bob da Rage Sense, Sir Scratch, Barrako 27, Dealema, MC Ruze, MK aka Nocivo and Reflect are among the most popular artists.
