The emo kids of the hip hop culture
I listen to atmosphere, "f*ck you lucy", that's not emo, I don't know what is

It used to mean someone who carried mixtapes in his backpack but now white suburban kids call themselves backpackers. And they're basically just people who keep whining about they want hip hop to go back to the way it was before because they dont fit into the whole "party scene" yet they are completely oblivious to the fact that hip hop was created from block parties. They also listen to a lot old skool hip hop like Public Enemy which is really weird since PE music was mostly about black rights and freedom.

Basically they are now just sad white suburban kids who dont fit into the hip hop culture want to fit in so bad that they try to re-arrange it to suit their own needs. They're just as bad as all the stupid gangsta 50 cent shit that is out right now. If you truly wanna be hip hop, then just BE. Stop tainting it with your stupid shit.
The term "backpacker" has been completely butchered.

backpacker someone who's into commercial Hip-Hop that is only played on the Radio and Music channels. Reason being you are always in the back of the pack. You're a follower in music. You can't pick music on your own. You're being program. It's only good to you because it's played on the radio 100 times a day.
Why do people think something is dope because it's played on the radio 100 times a day?Backpacker!!!
