WHAT IS TBP?
“Teambackpack.net represents a collaboration effort bridging together talented and diverse musicians. Our ultimate goal is to create and promote a positive environment to connect individual artists to their fans without the major labels.”
TeamBackpack is a registered LLC, music movement, and online entertainment hub for the global underground/independent hip-hop music scene and is currently based in San Francisco, CA. With over six years of video/media production, artist development, event planning, talent discovery & online marketing experience under our belt, the TeamBackpack staff has successfully built a core loyal and growingworldwide fanbase. The company is completely self-contained and everything we do is in-house. The TeamBackpack movement itself is based around the whole underground hip-hop culture and encompasses the staff, artists involved, producers, and each and every fan; which creates an inclusive feel where many people feel connected to the movement.One reason for TBP’s growth is the “TeamBackpack Cypher Series.” Since its early days, TeamBackpack has held cypher events in which the best underground & independent emcees spit their hottest 16 bars over originally produced beats, all in one take. With three to four people on a beat, these sessions are filmed live and brought to the Internet for a worldwide audience via YouTube, and more recently ustream.tv. Fans can login, interact and vote for who they thought had the best verse. With over 100 episodes already released and total viewcount reaching well above 10 million, TBP Cyphers are heralded by many in the hip-hop industry.TeamBackpack content has been featured on well-respected websites/blogs/radio/TV stations and the company has taken part in creating content for the world’s biggest hip-hop festivals including Rock The Bells and A3C.
