NPR gets Hyphy, Hu-Hu-Hu-Hu-Hyphy

Hip-Hop to the Nth Degree: Hyphy

It never ceases to crack me up to hear the halcyon NPR voices talking about new movements in underground hip hop:
All Things Considered, April 4, 2006. Youth Radio's Tapan Munshi explains hyphy, a rap style out of the suburbs of San Francisco that is defined by a fast pace and intricate wordplay. It has been popular in the Bay Area for a while, but it's just now getting national attention. The godfather of hyphy -- rapper E-40 -- has an album in Billboard's top 100.
