Someone who says they're down for something, then says they're not. Similar to a flake, but worse. Science says that 1 in every 5 persons is a "hype"
Bro 1: "Hey bro! Lets go to the casino, then hit the strip club after."
Bro 2: "Im fuckin down!"
Later that night...
Bro 2: "So you down bro?"

Bro 1: "Nah man, imma stay in with my girl"
Bro 2:"Fuckin Hype ass foo!"

"Are you down or are you gonna be a hype?"
"Of course im down, I aint a hype."

When a person gets an amazing amount of credit that he/she doesn't deserve. Popularity makes them look extremely attractive. They think they are better than they actually are. These people get girlfriend/boyfriends because of their hyped up name. Later on, people will discover this hype but most don't discover it until it's too late. You get into a relationship with them because of their hype and you end up unhappy because the person you're with isn't worth your time. These people are DISGUSTING. Beware of hype.

Another word for effort. Usually in terms of how much energy would be used to do something. Whether something is worth doing or not based on how difficult it would be. Stoner Slang.
Lets hype over to Emma's place, she just made brownies!

A form of energy usable when once reaches a peak of maximum capacity. Going into 'Hype' will allow for extreme bouts of physical action.
Person A: GOD DAMN IT!

Person B: WHAT?!

Person A: -Starts punching and kicking the air wildly at a consistently increasing speed.-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!

Person B: The hell?

Person A: -Smacks person B with a pillow.- WHERE'S YOUR HYPE DAMN IT?! -Jumps off a flight of stairs and wave dashes out the door.-
