Jerry Brown gets all “hyphee”

Jerry Brown, Oakland Mayor and my favorite blogging politician, is teaching me a bunch of Bay Area urban slang. I feel so nineteen-ninety-now when I think of everything I’ve missed being this far away from the hip-hop game. The last music video I ever worked on was Fabolous’ first big hit. So Mayor Brown’s rant about “convoys of cars in ‘hyphee‘ mode” threw me for a loop. That’s his link to the Urban Dictionary, not mine. So now I know what hyphee means, and clicked on crunk so I could finally catch on to what that was all about. Yiddish? Chinese? Apparently everyone wants a piece. Quoth the NorCal undergrads: “It’s like, hella, y’know, like hella.”
