Portuguese hip hop (Hip hop português), more commonly called 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 LusophoneAfrica, reggae, zouk and Portuguese fado. It is often performed by African-Portuguese artists, descendants from African immigrants who came to Portugal after the independence of its former African colonies.
Artists such as Valete and Sam the Kid are among the most popular. Old school Portuguese hip hop artists include Chullage, Regula, Da Weasel, Allen Halloween, Dealema, Mind Da Gap, J.Cap, Sir Scratch, Boss AC, Don Nuno, and Guetto 6 Damaia. Bimma (BMP) is one of Angola's best new school rappers.
