Team Backpack has been doing their thing for quite some time, Their cyphers have been the center of up-and-coming emcees attention for a minute in the Bay Area. But for whatever reason, since Duckworth hit the Team Backpack scene, my email inbox has been over run with emails about how artists can get on the Team Backpack site. I personally am not a member of the team, but I do know that there is an audition process online that you can find out about from their site, and emcees must record an audition tape and post it up online to get recognition before they’re considered for the monthly cypher. I’ve taken a look at all of the auditions posted up to date, and I have to say that only 2 or 3 out of 30 struck me as hype-worthy. The best of these comes from the artist C.I. Bang, the flow is a welcome departure from the repetitious babble of other posters, and stands out (to me) as a valid entry into the Team Backpack rotation. Check out the audition tape by clicking on the picture above, and you’ll know you’d want to see C.I. do his thing in the Team Backpack mix this month.
