Rap, Rock, Ska, Hardcore and Samba. First appearing in 1993 in Rio de Janeiro, with politically charged lyrics about marijuana legalization, they started playing concerts in Rio de Janeiro and other capitals, such as Belo Horizonte, São Paulo and Curitiba. Planet Hemp began attracting mainstream attention due to the violent outbreaks which were common during their concerts. In 1994 Skunk, one of the original band members passed away, interrupting Planet Hemp's career for some time, but after B Negão joined the group they signed a contract with Sony Music, releasing "Usuário" in 1995.

The album turned the band into an icon of the 90s Brazilian rock, with successful hits such as "Mantenha o Respeito", "Legalize Já", "Fazendo a Cabeça" and the controversial "Porcos Fardados" (Pigs in Uniform), a critique of the police brutality. Because of their commitment and lyrics towards the legalization of marijuana, Planet Hemp has had issues with the Brazilian authorities. This tension has lead to apprehended records, cancelled concerts and prison warrants (in Brazil it is illegal to promote/defend the use of prohibited substances, including but not limited to weed). The band ended in 2001, due to internal conflicts regarding Marcelo D2 solo career. Members: Marcelo D2 (vocals) Skunk (vocals, 1993-94) Rafael (guitar) Formigão (bass) Bacalhau (drums) B Negão (vocals) Zé Gonzales (programming) Apollo 9 (keyboards) Black Alien (vocals) Read more on Last.fm.
