December 02, 2012 :: 07:16 PM EDT

Planet Hemp is a Brazilian rap-rock grobandp, known for starting the career of rapper Marcelo D2 and for its lyrics supporting the legality of the psychoactive drug cannabis. The band was founded in Rio de Janeiro in 1993, with original members Marcelo D2, Skunk, Rafael, Formigão and Bacalhau.

The band broke up in 2001 due to differences between the band members, and Marcelo D2′s increasing focus on his solo projects but they reunited in 2010 and they are one of the headliners of Lollapalooza 2013 in Brazil. A nice Brazilian version of the Beastie Boys. Check them out below.
