Harold "Hype" Williams (born 1970; Queens, New York), previously known as HYPE, is an American music video and film director of African American and Honduran descent.
Williams first displayed his work by tagging local billboards, storefronts, and playgrounds using HYPE as his graffiti tag. "That's probably what stimulated my interests in color," he says. "I wanted to be Basquiat or Keith Haring of the streets."
