Gavlyn: Representing Strong Independent Backpack Rappers

A culture, a lifestyle, a state of mind, a self-expression: Hip Hop.

Gavlyn, authentic independent artist,  “just wanna be Hip Hop”

More than just being Hip Hop, this is she brings in her latest visual for ‘No Backpacks’, from her last album ‘Why Wait’, produced by DJ Hoppa.


One track, full of truth and irony, where she speaks for herself on one hand,

But also stands for all real backpack rappers on the other hand,

As she pinpoints the mass appeal, when artists sell out to a major record;

As Lauryn Hill would say: ‘you might win some, but you just lost one’.

Besides, she also points out, not only in this song but all along the album Why Wait, 

The labels that wish to drive artists’ career regardless of their artistry and dedication.

By this first lecture, Gavlyn recalls what other independent musicians, such as Chance The Rapper,

Who ‘don’t like labels or titles‘ and who claims it loud and proud in songs like ‘No Problem’.

On an other lecture, you can appreciate how Gavlyn highlights the Hip Hop culture in her visual, directed by Diamond Films,


Who shot nice views of graffiti, street art.

During the promotion of her album, Gavlyn came in Lyon to perform live along wih REVERIE, DJ LALA, and LMK, for her GAVNREV TOUR:

After chatting with her after the show and asking her which artist from LA inspires her the most,

She confides Kendrick Lamar.

The one funny thing that remains in this visual, is that when you look closely to the music video,

It seems she and the team for the video, had their vision inspired by the ‘Alright’ music video, from the hanging shoes, to the drifting cars, and the Hip Hop culture.

Where Kendrick Lamar sets a lot of messages, and one them being the tribute to Hip Hop.

No Backpacks  is one of the best tracks of her album, along with Where The Real Ones Go, and more.

Why Wait has got that massive message.
