Hyphy Tracks for DJs
Mac Dre

Hyphy is a high-energy subgenre of hip-hop that emerged in Oakland, California in the late ’90s. The style, which has been compared to crunk music, is characterized by bouncy rhythms and boisterous vocals.

Hyphy was pioneered by artists like Keak Da Sneak, Mac Dre, and Traxamillion. In the mid-2000s, it gained national popularity when Bay Area legends E-40 and Too $hort scored a series of hits produced by Lil Jon.
