After all that list-making, you'd assume we've had more than our fill of last year over here at FADER HQ. NOT SO! At least not as far as this Hyphy Hitz disc is concerned. Aside from a few highly suspect inclusions from the TVT roster (dudez, Twisted Black's "I'm A Fool Wit It" does not a "hyphy hit" make), this collection is one of the most solid front-to-back looks at the last year (or three) in Northern California, with certifiable classics like Keak da Sneak's "Super Hyphy" and Mac Dre's "Feelin Myself" getting equal shine next to personal favorites like the DB'z "Stewy". Plus, having all these tracks together on one compact disc means we can keep our green vinyl copy of the Team's "Hyphy Juice" single in the pristine mint condition it deserves. Pick one up for yourself next Tuesday.
