backpack rap
 n.— «I think that’s already happening in the form of what Stretch Armstrong disdainfully calls “backpack rap”—emphasis on lyrics and/or bugged production, with head-nodding a low priority. unfortunately, this kind of synthetic genre is almost always defined by target demographic, not intenral resemblance.» —“Re: prosyletizing the underground and other lanky stinky madness” by nfriedma@haverford.edu Usenet: rec.music.hip-hop July 9, 1998.
