do you want to get hyphy?

tags: | | |

I'm still trying to figure out what I think about this hyphy music.I know for E-40 it's just due and I like "Tell Me When To Go," particularly the remix with Game has become as addictive as my Sidekick II (Thanks Michael). On the heels of Crunk and Snap you got Hyphy (and all 3 of these genres are married) so it really shows that the East Coast has fallen off in a major way, er strike that, make that New York. But then has New York even been hot since Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt?

It's kind of ironic, considering the last time I was in the Yay (Vallejo to be exact - and mind you it was at least 4 years ago), hyphy was not what I heard on the radio. It was your typical commercial fodder.

All that aside, E-40's My Ghetto Report has landed itself atop the Billboard chart somehow. So I suppose I need to pay attention.
