General D

Real Name:
Sergio Matsinhe
Profile:
General D was born in Mozambique, Africa (a former Portuguese colony) and immigrated as a child to Lisbon. He was the first rapper in Portugal to sign a record deal. He signed a multi-album contract with the Portugal division of EMI Records. Although he rapped in Portuguese and drew inspiration from American artists such as Public Enemy, Ice Cube and Ice T, his music carried a distinct African flavor incorporating many live tribal percussion instruments. Although his whereabouts are unknown at this time, the charismatic and well loved General D should always be considered The Godfather of Portuguese hip hop.

General D was born in Mozambique, Africa (an ex-colony of Portugal) and immigrated as a child to Lisbon. He literally was the first rapper of any kind in Portugal to have a record deal. He signed a multi-album contract to the Portugal division of EMI records. Although he rapped in Portuguese and drew inspiration from American artists such as Public Enemy, Ice Cube and Ice T - his music had a distinct African flavor about it interlacing many live tribal percussion instruments. Although his whereabouts are unknown at this time, the charismatic and well loved General D should always be considered The Godfather of Portuguese hip hop.
