Various Artists Hyphy Hitz
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: TVT
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Although "ghost riding the whip" made Fox News freak out, don't think the Bay Area's hyphy music movement is headed for the trend trashcan. Hyphy Hitz proves that a national audience is curious about the West's latest rap maneuvers. As on TVT's Crunk Hits series, radio favorites like Keak's "Super Hyphy," Mistah F.A.B.'s "Super Sic wit It," and The Team's "Hyphy Juice" rub shoulders with new tracks by Dem Hoodstarz, Furious, and Shake Da Mayor. Major Bay acts like Mac Dre, E-40, San Quinn, and Sky Balla also gas, break, and dip it here. Watch thizz go!
