Mistah F.A.B. Takes Its Back to 2006 in ‘Can’t Kill Hyphy’ Video [WATCH]
The hyphy movement continues to thrive in the Bay Area. Although it has lost some of its musical luster, Mistah F.A.B. takes it back to the height of the movement (circa 2006) in his new video for “Cant Kill Hyphy.”
Directed by Trevor Laub, the Yay Area legend hits the streets with his crew and tells the world why hyphy will never die under his watch.
"Far as hyphy go, I ain't gon' let it die / Couldn'ta left it in the hands of a better guy / Fetty Wap on the game, lookin' with my better eye / Tech grind, Chevron gas, unleaded, ah," spits F.A.B. in a flow similar to Keak da Sneak, the leader of the hyphy movement.
He later adds, "Hands on the clock gettin' turned back / Year 2006, where the herb at? / The Bay fell off? Nigga what? Where you heard that? / Been gettin' lit, tell the world we want our word back (litty)."
Throughout the video you see kids shaking their dreadlocks and car fanatics participating in the Bay Area activity of ghost riding the whip. Also, fellow Oakland, Calif. native Marshawn Lynch, of the Los Angeles Raiders, gets saluted in the clip as well.
The hyphy movement is still alive thanks to Keak da Sneak who is set to drop his new album, Withdrawl, on Friday (Nov. 3). The hyphy legend just released a new song, "For You," that's strictly for the ladies.
