Hyphy rap is dead?

Hyphy, the latest hype in rap music from the Bay Area region, lost its power.. at least Marian Liu said that in her article on Hyphy.

Just more than a year ago, the Bay Area seemed poised to become the center of the hip-hop universe. The hyperactive party music known as "hyphy" was ubiquitous at clubs. Mainstream publications featured stories about Northern California's rap scene being on the verge of exploding nationally. But something happened - or maybe didn't happen - between then and now, leaving the hyphy movement listless, with even local popularity beginning to dissipate.
