TeamBackpack is a music movement created in San Francisco by Armani Cooper, Dev Tejwani, and Nelson Silva. Since its early days, TeamBackpack has held cypher events in which underground & independent emcees rap a verse over originally produced beats, all in one take. With three to four people on a beat, these sessions are filmed live. Past cyphers featured artists such as Cyhi da Prynce, Joell Ortiz, Krizz Kaliko, Denzil Porter, Dizzy Wright and Rapsody.[1]

In June 7, 2018, TeamBackPack, in conjunction with World Underground announced their inaugural World Underground Festival. The festival is scheduled for August 29 to 31, 2018 to which Ghostface & Raekwon did not show up to and World Underground has still not refunded anyone.[1]
