Boss AC (real name Ângelo César) is a Portuguese rapper originally from Cape Verde. His albums include “Ritmo, Amor e Palavras” , “Rimar contra a Maré” and “MandaChuva”.

His most popular songs include: “Dinero”, “Baza Baza”, and “Doa a Quem Doer”. Although he lives in Portugal, he spends a lot of his time in Africa, especially Angola. He has collaborated with many Angolan rappers, most notably Gutto, when they collaborated for “Dinero”.


Boss AC started his career in 1994 with Rapública, a compilation album that joined together the new faces of the Portuguese hip hop movement. In this album, he was one of the performers and producers.

In 1998, Boss AC recorded his first album, Mandachuva, in the USA with production by Troy Hightower. This album was a mixture of hip-hop, ragga, soul, R&B and african sounds. He also recorded a duet titled “No Stress” with Gutto. Together, they produced music and went on tour.

In 2002, Boss AC produced his second album titled Rimar contra a maré, a more autobiographical album, entirely written and produced by him. This album continued the trend of adding African and Portuguese traditional sounds.

Boss AC’s latest album, Ritmo, Amor e Palavras, was recorded in 2005. This album included collaborations with Posdnuos from De La Soul, Da Weasel, Sam the Kid and Pedro Ayres de Magalhães. The album gave Boss AC a nomination in the MTV European Music Awards for Best Portuguese Act.

In 2007, Akon invited Boss AC for a successful remake of “I Want to Love You”, including video clips. This theme has been heard in the U.S., with notable positions in the tables.

In January 2008, AC launched the 1st theme of his new album, still under construction. The theme is called “Levanta-te (Quem é que manda aqui?)”.
