RODRIGUEZ, Andréa; FERREIRA, Rhaniele  e  ARRUDA, Angela. Social representations and territory in proibido de facção funk lyrics. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.3, pp.414-432. ISSN 1677-1168.

This article aims to analyse how territoriality of drug trafficking in favelas is expressed in funk lyrics. Those songs represent a unique urban culture produced for poor youth living in favelas. It reveals a daily reality that goes overlooked by most people which produces negative effects among favela residents. For that, it was developed an analysis of fifty lyrics of "forbidden funk" style songs. In those funk songs, we highlight territory as an important category of analysis which shows the social dynamic that gangs develop in favelas. Here we understand that through funk lyrics it is possible to "read" some aspects of the consequences of the territorialisation of drug trafficking in the life, social representation and social practices of favelas residents

Palavras-chave : Territory; social representations; funk; drug trafficking.
