Just When You Thought Hyphy Was Forever, Whitey Crashed The Party And Ruined Everything (Again)
Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: Music.
As with most things in American culture, one can gauge how far past a trend is by how white is becomes. That being said, it seemed only a matter of time before hyphy went the way of the crunk – white and tired. Did it peak with Mistah FAB, Ghost Ride The Whip: The Movie, or with some random white kids demonstrating that even with props – white people can’t dance? No – it was when this happened:
“Ghost ridin’ grandma” – the three words that killed hyphy.
On a mostly unrelated note, this mash was introduced to me recently – and while it has absolutely nothing to do with ghost ridin’, whips, or crazy ass street dancing it does have a lot to do with Ghostbusters. And no matter how bunk the title sounds, I suggest you checking it out (if only for the novelty of it if nothing else).
