Record Store Day release. Criolo keeps his fans happy with a single while he works on his next album. Released in a limited edition of 500 copies on a 45 rpm white vinyl 10" record, individually numbered. "Duas de Cinco" ("Two of Five") is the kind of old-school topical hip-hop that made Criolo famous in the favelas and inner city of São Paulo. Over insistent sampled beats, Criolo raps dense rhymes boldly critical of Brazil today. An instrumental version of "Duas de Cinco" follows the vocal version on the single's A-side. The B-side is "Cóccix-Ência" ("Coccyx Excellence"), neo-Tropicalia recorded live with Criolo's outstanding band. Produced by Daniel Ganjaman and Marcelo Cabral.
