I grew up in The Triangle which is Durham, Raleigh, and Chapel Hill. When I moved from Florida to Cary I was fascinated with Pharrell and Kanye West. I liked how they dressed because you could always spot them with a cool backpack. Around that time people were making songs about items like Crime Mobs "White Tees" and Soulja boys "I got me some bathing apes". One day I wanted to make a song about backpacks so I started freestyling to myself and came up with the words backpack savvy. I had beats but no mic so I changed my name on social media to Brian Backpack Savvy. Since my real name is so common people always allowed me to choose a nick name if not given one.
