backpacker
 n.— «Company Flow first crashed into our lives in 1995.…We were dumb enough to think that Rawkus could be bold, new avatars of the hip hop revolution. The word “backpackers” didn’t even have any currency at the time; the reflexive self-hatred and reverse-racial inferiority complexes that would break out like a rash across the avant-garde hip-hop scene hadn’t yet gained such an engulfing weight.» —by Neil Kulkarni Hip Hop: Bring the Noise July 1, 2004.
