Ces Cru, Snak The Ripper, Spice 1, Azizi Gibson, Duckwrth, Irv Da Phenom, Nocando and Kung Fu Vampire are among the artists confirmed to perform in cyphers at TeamBackpack.net’s “Mission Underground” show in San Francisco, California today. Scheduled to take place at the Mission Cultural Center, the event is slated to begin at 6 pm EST and can be streamed live at ustream.tv.
The cyphers will all be done live, in one take, and over original production. “You get to see the artist live right then and there,” Nelson Silva, who co-founded TeamBackPack.net in 2010 with Armani Cooper and Dev Tejwani, said to HipHopDX in an exclusive interview earlier this month. “There is no ‘Hollywoodness’ to it. It’s one take. This is them and their talent. It’s the most naturalistic way to show an artist and how they go in the studio and get on the track. We get to see it live.”
In addition to the cyphers, Ces Cru, Azizi Gibson, Snak The Ripper, Kung Fu Vampire and Irv The Phenom are also scheduled to be interviewed by TeamBackpack.net during “Mission Underground.” The interviews will take place in between cyphers and will appear during the live stream. The live stream will also feature music videos.
Tickets for TeamBackpack.net’s “Mission Underground” show can be purchased at TeamBackpack.net.
