If you love Skuff Micksun, you are already halfway there to loving DirtyBackPack. Also, if you liked the interviews with Mic Miles or Nuke Franklin, they have songs with DirtyBackPack!

DirtyBackPack, all one word, is a rap duo based in Cleveland, Ohio comprised of Skuff Micksun and “Plain Dealer” aka “Average John” aka a lot of other names. They are the epitome of what the brother in law relationship should be.

In this episode, we learn the origin of the name DirtyBackPack, learn how they make their music, and even a bit about the Cleveland Music scene!

I had the opportunity to go to their studio to record the interview. It is always a little better of an interview when you can go to where they make their stuff. I think when the guest is in their ” safe place” you can get them to open up a bit more.

If that doesn’t work, have Bear Trap throw “Dirty” Onesies and Beers at the guests while filming! That is right, this interview has not only a flying onsie, but two flying beers!

Casey and John are such a good group, they even finish each others sentences!


DirtyBackPack Wrap Up

All in all, it was a great episode I think. John and Skuff are two talented people but more importantly, good people. They do what they do because they love it and that shows through in their music. I think that their music is original, purposeful, and sounds great.

I foresee DirtyBackPack being a recurring guest on this show. They were welcoming, fun to talk to, and I think have a vault of knowledge that would help everyone!
