Top definition
The most recent incarnation of hipsters (in the UK at least).
Almost always seen in some sort of headwear: most commonly a flat-peaked cap but sometimes some sort of beanie instead. Other typical clothing includes graphic tees, chunky trainers (usually skate shoes or basketball shoes, preferably Nike), parkas, plaid shirts, hoodies and slim-fitting chinos or jeans. Big headphones are a popular accessory.
Their favourite activities include smoking weed, clubbing and going to rap shows. A notable minority also try their hand at skateboarding, especially after the rise in popularity of OFWGKTA.
They listen to "underground" hip-hop (favourites include Immortal Technique, Aesop Rock, Sage Francis, Saul Williams, Curren$y, MF DOOM). They also listen to electronic music ranging from dubstep, house and IDM to witch house and the abstract "beat music" of the Brainfeeder Collective. They'll tend to feign an appreciation of old skool rap, but rarely actually listen to anything made before the year 2000.
They invariably revere the late great J Dilla as a god.
They'll rarely if ever identify with the term "hipster", probably considering it an insult, but may refer to themselves as "hip hop heads" or "beat heads".
Hipster-hopper 1: "Dude let's drop a load of mandy and go to a rave!"
Hipster-hopper 2: "Nah bro, let's just roll another spliff, put on some beats and chill out here."

A hipster who primarily listens to underground/experimental hip-hop (usually along with IDM, trip-hop and dubstep; often along with some mainstream hip-hop as well).
Often wears retro Nike trainers, gold chains (often comically oversized under the pretense of irony), wide-framed glasses (even if they don't need them to see) and skinny jeans. Also known to sport unusual haircuts, including afros, mohawks and buzz cuts.
Usually, Caucasian or East Asian, but often also black or mixed race. Regardless of race, always overuses supposedly "street" slang such as "dope", "ill", "sick" and "wack".
Hipster-hoppers typically listen to such artists as J Dilla, MF DOOM, Aesop Rock, Flying Lotus and those associated with anticon.

A hipster of the hip-hop persuasion. While following the hipster doctrines of apathy, a non-corporate lifestyle, and non-conformity, the hipster hopper often listens to rap, wears baggier clothes, and gold chains, most likely for purposes of irony.

2: "no, he's just a hipster hopper"
