What is hyphy?
Hyphy is a slang word for "hyperactive," and is used as an adjective to describe hip-hop music – specifically from the Bay Area of California.
The term was first coined by Oakland rapper Keak da Sneak, who worked closely with Traxamillion.
Around the 1990s, the hyphy movement gained traction and spread into the early 2000s.
Hyphy music is distinguished by pounding rhythms, often compared to crunk music of the south.
Throughout the 2010s, the hyphy movement saw a resurgence in club and hip-hop music.
Los Angeles producer DJ Mustard is known for his hyphy-style music, and has worked with artists like Tyga, 2 Chainz, and Young Jeezy.
