VIDEO: “My Backpack” – The MC Type & Prof

An anonymous reader once told me that he met a local DJ/producer on the street whose reputation as a true school hip-hop representative was often called into question. That is until said DJ pulled from his magical backpack a copy of A Tribe Called Quest’s People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. And a vinyl one at that! Hallelujah! All doubts erased!

The situation described above might be what The MC Type is goofing on in his hilarious video for “My Backpack.” Because, after all, a stethoscope does not a doctor make.
