GIANFELICE, Marcelo Augusto; PESSOA, Alex Sandro Gomes  and  GOMES, Ariane Rico. Expressions of hidden resilience in the lyrics of rap music group call "facção central". Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.1, pp. 143-152. ISSN 1677-2970.

This article aims to analyze the concept of hidden resilience expressed in the lyrics of rap songs. The study is configured as qualitative, exploratory-descriptive, based on documentary research. The research used the musicography of the rap group "Facção Central". In total, 125 songs were analyzed, 12 of which made direct mention of aspects related to hidden resilience. From the analyzed material, 3 categories were elaborated: 1) Material resources obtained in the crime; 2) Identity and feeling of power; 3) Affective-sexual relationships. The results show that even with the possible personal and social damage, illicit activities especially drug trafficking can bring positive personal meanings to people mainly adolescents and young people from disadvantaged social strata. The findings of this study reiterate the hypotheses about the concept of hidden resilience and invite researchers to invest in this thematic field.

Keywords : Hidden resilience; Social vulnerability; Rap music; Illicit activities.
