Default which is the correct backpacker explanation?!

im confused, i always thought nowadays it was someone who thought nelly n 50 n was the be-all and end-all of rap.

but then it says its someone whos into undergound, like me.

jus to ya dont start shit, yes i knew originally it was from graffing kids n shit, so im not ignoring the roots, hence the NOWADAYS its someone into nelly...

ok a back packer never was/is someone who likes nelly/50 cent. When people talk of back packers on here, its used negativly to describe someone who hates anything popular (like on MTV) and only listens to underground shit.

They can call it whatever......I love underground hiphop..graffing, turntablism and so forth. Im not into todays hiphop...Im an underground head straight through. I guess Im into nerd rap if you want to call it that lol. But anyway if they call you a backpacker then smile with pride...I do.

People call other people back packers because it seems that they hate anything popular, not because its bad music, but just because its popular, without giving it a real chance. Take the Chamillionaire song, Riding Dirty for example. The average "backpacker" would just dismiss it automatically, due to the fact that it got play on MTV, and everyone likes it, when if most of them actually listend to the song, they might enjoy it. That's what angers people who call other people back packers, its their close-mindedness.

no no no, ur misreading my shit. They don't down on people who listen to 50 and shit, they down on people who only listen to underground shit (which would be a backpacker)

If you only listen to underground hip hop, and hate anything on TV, then you would be considered a back packer

so is being a packpacker nagative?

if someone listens to only underground hiphop but is willing to and has given popular hiphop a listen and doesnt like it, are they a backpacker? and if that means they are, is this a bad thing?

Backpack rappers use dictionaries, thesauruses and rhyme dictionarys to help them rhyme all that intelligent or mad-morphing multis. Thus the books in their backpack help them write those songs. Am I dead wrong or dead accurate?
