Backpackers Anonymous Music Group is giving Undaground Hip Hop a facelist in 2009, and leading off the resurrection is Cyrano aka Cy Yung (http://www.myspace.com/cyranoakacyyung), Junclassic (http://www.myspace.com/junclassic) and R.O.E. (http://www.myspace.com/risingoverenvy). All 3 are dropping free EPs to wrap up Black History Month by making history yet again
The BPA production team, JSLIKK (http://www.myspace.com/jslikkmusic) & Cynergy Soundz (http://www.myspace.com/cynergysoundz) produced individual EPs for all 3, and we're giving em to the people so the world can @@GET FAMILIAR@@ with what 'Reel Hip Hop' sounds like again! Give em a listen!
Cyrano's Republic is Cy's version of Nas's "If I Ruled The World," elongated into an album. Backed by JSLIKK & Cynergy's "soul & synths", Cyrano (aka Cy Yung) waxes poetic about politickin', tragedy, nostalgia & hope giving u a glimpse into what Freedom under the BPA Administration CAN be if we all take the time to just remember. He's got crooner J-Soul on the intro, and he teams up with vocalist Maria Don to remind us who is the most important woman in all our lives. This EP speaks to the revolutionary, the robber, and the reformed all at the same time. Cyrano's Republic dares you to answer the question "Can there be freedom without sacrifice?"
DOWNLOAD CYRANO'S REPUBLIC (+ COVER ART) HERE:
Having recently released his sophomore album Overqualified Queens emcee Junclassic is providing fans with The Late Nites & Early Mournings EP. The project, recorded throughout the end of 2008 and the first 20 days of this year, is according to Junclassic, the 11 most personally painful songs he has penned or recorded in a career throughout the last decade. The download includes cover art, liner notes, and Junclassic's essay on "Why do a free album?" Cyrano (aka Cy Yung), Monsta X and Ceez are featured guests.
DOWNLOAD THE LATE NITES & EARLY MOURNINGS EP (+ COVER ART & A ESSAY FROM JUNCLASSIC "WHY DO A FREE ALBUM?") HERE:
Here's a EP from the homey R.O.E. collecting a host of tracks that just deal with females. Some really heartfelt cuts on this one; "So Brand New" is a favorite, as is that live rendition of "Sweet Love". Not only is this pure Hip-Hop, its good music you could play for your momma. Or your sweetie. Enjoy.

I thought i'd take some time out and let you all know whats goin down with the good folks at BackPackers Anonymous.
...as promised it was the BUSIEST summer in BPA's 3 year history.
Now as you noticed at the beginning of the summer, we blasted out of the gate with a bunch of heat and previewed some material from albums that were started last winter and planned for summer releases. If you heard it, i dont even have to ask if you did, im just gonna assume you did and say im glad you all enjoyed it. But here's where it gets a little tricky. You see, we had albums planned for summer releases (Mainly Cy's "A Tribute to Rosie Perez" and J. Slikk's "Flavor Spectrum"), however the timetables have changed for both albums. Due to equippment problems late last spring, Slikk's whole timetable for Flavor Spectrum was pushed back to a late fall or early winter release.. When in the fall or winter? this will more than likely be known sometime in october. As for Cy's Rosie Perez, it is known that Cy and Slikk are 3 songs or so away from completion, but will take time in the final processes to finish the album and then promote it. It will more than likely be released mid winter or early spring.
Due to the complex nature of both albums (that is, starting out as smaller releases and building to become much larger) the timetables were pushed back to meet the needs of their quality and potential... both albums also will potentially be shopped for distribution.
In addition to those albums... Oscah's completed album is currently shelved and has no release date. Until an update occurs enjoy the first single off the album "Lose you 2 Love you" produced by J. Slikk at www.myspace.com/jslikkmusic
Luckily we got all the singles out that were scheduled to drop this summer...
BPA newcomer Junclassic (yes we have a new emcee to the clan) is working on his BPA debut (not yet titled) and a first single from the album will be here sometime between the end of September and end of November. The album will be fully produced by Cynergy Soundz and J. Slikk.
R.O.E. is working on mixtape material and will start work on his debut album by the end of the year... more news to come win the next couple months.
Indy Sparks has released 2 independent ep's this summer outside of the BPA camp. The Ritual and Thin line ep are quite consistent and come highly recomended.
Cynergy Soundz is hard at work on his 2nd compilation "Zenith II"... you can check out a few early joints from the album on his page. Once Zenith II and Slikk's Flavor Spectrum, as well as Junclassic's album are complete, BPA's trademark sound creators will begin work on the second installment of their Foreign Currency series, which they hope will be ready for a summer/fall '09 release.
long story short, unlike past winters, no hibernation for BPA this winter...We will be hard at work. Look out for Flavor Spectrum and a Tribute to Rosie Perez.
New websites promoting both albums will be arriving in the coming months as well.
more info soon!
