Back in the day, when the D.J. would be playing a record, I’d be on the mic trying to hype up the crowd.

‘The Victorian Internet’ is a must read for anyone interested in the history of technology and in the cycles of hype, boom, and bust that seem to only quicken with each new wave of innovation. Highly recommended.
John Battelle
People are brainwashed into believing that Italy is the seat of luxury manufacturing. If it’s made in Italy, it must be good. That’s just hype. Quality is where you bring it.

Julia Child
The hype around Ronda is incredible and it’s created this aura of invincibility. If you let that play with your mind, you’ll be beaten before the bell rings. She’s a great fighter, but I know I can beat her and I don’t let that aura of invincibility bother me.
Liz Carmouche
I’ve personally been involved in movies where people on set were talking about awards for the movie, and I bought into the hype. And then the movie would come out, and not only was it not good, it was horrible.
Dave Franco
I think the problem I have with films is that, because there’s so much hype around them, they become bigger than they should be, really. There are things that people do every day in their little workshops that they’ll take to heaven with them. You’ve got to realise that it’s not everything, making films.
Hans Matheson
I’m a New Yorker, I say what’s on my mind, because not being that way, what’s the point of that? People may think this is hype, but you look back before at my other fights and you see that I don’t talk trash.

We lock ourselves away and we concentrate on what we’re doing and try not to think about the madness that’s surrounding it, and all the hype.
Justin Chancellor
You have lines of people outside Apple stores waiting for the latest iPhone, which adds to the hype around new product launch. So scarcity has value not just in its own right, but as a basis for free PR – it can become a story on the nightly news.
John Quelch
The Beat Generation – that term is even more familiar now, even more than say the ’70s. Hype is built and established and people link it back to a certain generation, in this case the ’40s and ’50s. Now everyone knows that that group was the Beat Generation.

I’ve never been the kind of guy to hype myself up. It’s just not my thing.

Craig Venter
Beyond the hype, style, and speculation, the truth is that the iPad is really just another tablet device. A really big PDA, where a touchscreen does what a laptop’s keyboard used to do.

You do have those guys that talk a lot. I understand they’re doing it for a reason, to hype a fight, but then you get guys who do it and you can tell that they’re trying too hard.
Stephen Thompson
I’ve always felt like there was a lot of hype around me even when there wasn’t. I felt like everyone was talking about me even when no one was talking about me.

Hugh Masekela
When you’re young and everything dramatic is exciting, you start to believe that hype that, in order to be an artist, you have to suffer. I’ve graduated from that school.
Lauryn Hill
I’ve always believed that you put everything into making the best record you can make, regardless of how you release it and regardless of the press and the hype – that the music wins.
Eric Church
I’d like to see technology to move beyond the hype and be considered part of infrastructure… the way you see access to water. I would like it to move away from apps and mobile money. So that everyone has their TV and their Wi-Fi, and it’s just ubiquitous. I think that’s where we should be headed.
Ory Okolloh
Always for me, when theres any leadup or hype or anticipation surrounding an event, such as the release of a show, it always gives me a bit of anxiety.

I think about the people that I’ve seen change because they believed in their own hype. I just never want that to happen to me.

I’ve played at Rucker Park a couple of times. It’s cold blooded. It’s hype in there, real hype.

Hype is wonderful when it happens, and you should capitalize on it. But you shouldn’t bank on it being the thing that will take you to the next step. Because it’s fleeting. The blah-blah-blah goes away, but you’re still there.
Tatiana Maslany
We’re making clothes – we aren’t saving the world. I’m not saying that designers aren’t artists, but at the end of the day, we make clothes. Hopefully we make beautiful clothes with a message, but in the end it’s for people to wear. I think that the hype of fashion has come down a level.
Joseph Altuzarra
Even though I’m a hype man myself, I like the practicality of it all. People who understand how to turn a profit. At the end of the day, this is still business so I’m looking for real practical knowledge of how to actually make money, not necessarily raise it.
Gary Vaynerchuk
I’m uncomfortable, frankly, with the hype about Africa. We went from one extreme… to, like, Africa now is the best thing after sliced bread.

I don’t want to believe my own hype.
Christina Aguilera
I think all the business stuff – the promotion, the hype, the high-power lunches, and the permanently injected smiles – is boring.
Chris Rea
A lot of what people are calling ‘artificial intelligence’ is really data analytics – in other words, business as usual. If the hype leaves you asking ‘What is A.I., really?,’ don’t worry, you’re not alone.
Om Malik
Look, I’m going to take full advantage of this situation just because I love working with great filmmakers. But I’ve been around for a while, and I’m not going to play into the hype that I’m some great, you know, discovery.
Josh Brolin
You know when there’s someone new on the rise and there’s too much hype? I didn’t want that to be me.
Shannyn Sossamon
The only reason why I’m on Twitter is because Dixie Carter made me. I’ll go on Twitter every now and again and just say some things. Normally, it’s just to hype wrestling and to hype what’s coming on TV and whatnot.
Bobby Roode
I always liked making the ‘vibe music’ more ’cause I feel like you can get more creative on it. Memphis is for sure like the grimey. In my hype music, the Memphis comes out of me – but when I try to vibe, I feel the Caribbean culture come out.
NLE Choppa
To be joining ‘The Hunger Games’ family is such a thrill. It deserves the hype because it’s well written, handles really big subject matter, but doesn’t talk down to its audience. And then there’s the romance element.
Natalie Dormer
The fact that hype exists doesn’t prove that something is not important.
Vilayanur S. Ramachandran
There is a danger in believing your own hype.
Chuka Umunna
Let me tell you, seven days without Wolf Blitzer is heaven. A week outside ‘The Situation Room’ is downright calming. No ‘breaking news!’ No hype. Blitzer is a first-class journalist, and I mention him only by way of acknowledging his fame.
Richard Cohen
The World Cup is made up of human relationships, you have to feel how the dressing room is established, how the players interact, the responsibility, the joy, the pride, you try to balance things out. If you’re hyper, you try to slow it down; if you’re a bit low, you try to hype it up.
Silicon Valley has a lot of noise, a lot of hype. People are very excited about all of the Facebook stuff, Facebook applications. It’s just been a huge hype over the last year when actually… there isn’t really that much value.
Jawed Karim
I believe that people start to get into trouble when they start to believe their own hype.
Debby Ryan
I love being on Sky Sports, the big hype around the games and stuff like that.
James Maddison
Barack Obama and Jimmy Hoffa are like Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Lady Gaga and hype, the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast and hairspray: inseparable. The president can no more disown the Teamsters Union’s leader than he can disown his own id.
Michelle Malkin
I know I have to live up to the hype wherever I go. If I’m an inch below the standard, it’ll be chaos.
Jameis Winston

Brent Faiyaz
We want to enjoy our families and the hype leading up to the game.
Tony Dungy
I started ‘Outer Banks,’ because there’s so much hype around it. I saw one episode and I didn’t really continue, but I got to keep going at it. Two of the actors on there were also in ‘Stranger Things,’ and all my friends always ask, ‘Oh my God, you know Madelyn Cline. She was in ‘Stranger Things’ too.’
Noah Schnapp
You never believe your own hype. As quick as somebody can be ‘the guy’ in Hollywood, he can be gone the next minute. For me, it’s about doing great work. And then hopefully you keep working forever.
Scott Eastwood
You have to find what makes you stable in the storm. Then, no matter what’s happening round you, no matter what the hype or the publicity, you can still manage to make leaps in your work as an artist.
Jimmy Smits
You don’t really need a lot of hype and to be famous to sell songs.

I think towards the end of my career, I’m the man. But right now, I’ve still got that underdog mentality to keep on proving myself time and again. I’m not going to believe the hype.
Anthony Joshua
The DJs with a lot of hype are not necessarily the best DJs at creating a vibe.
Erick Morillo
I live a very simple life. I live away from all the Hollywood hype, and I try to keep it that way.
Scott Eastwood
Hype covers every surface of mass culture, and sports fans are intimately familiar with it – the heavy-breathing buildup that leads, inevitably, to a first-round knockout or a 30-point blowout or a fourth-inning rainout.
Steve Rushin
I don’t think it’s healthy to buy into hype in any form, whether it’s positive or negative. You have to exist in yourself and just move on with life.
Elizabeth Debicki
The world of campaign consulting is full of hype. It is designed to offer those desperate for an edge on their opponent the promise of a silver bullet and a consultancy willing to go to any lengths – including all those things you’d like to do but can’t – in order to win.
Ben Domenech
I kill hype for a living.
Dominick Cruz
The more negative hype we get, the more records we sell, know what I’m saying?
I’m the hype guy, I’m the high-energy guy.
Mojo Rawley
I have done over 50 years in politics and this trial by media is unacceptable to me. Anybody can take any stand, and then run editorials… The media creates a hype, the opposition starts shouting, I sack my ministers… how do I run my government?
Amarinder Singh
Y2K hype taps our native discomfort with the realities of a dynamic, evolving social order. It elevates personal, local contact over the impersonality of the ‘extended order’ of trade and technological networks. It suggests that we can wipe the slate clean and start from scratch.
Virginia Postrel
As an Indian, and now as a politician and a government minister, I’ve become rather concerned about the hype we’re hearing about our own country, all this talk about India becoming a world leader, even the next superpower.
Shashi Tharoor
Obviously there will be a backlash. If you believe the hype you have to believe a backlash too. Any criticism we get, is always stuff we’ve already criticised ourselves.
Jonny Greenwood
I was working at a restaurant, I booked the role in ‘Twilight,’ put in my two weeks’ notice, got fitted, flew to Portland, filmed, and then it started getting hype. That helped me get my foot into certain doors before the movie even came out.
Ashley Greene
Hype is the awkward and desperate attempt to convince journalists that what you’ve made is worth the misery of having to review it.

Don’t believe the hype. I don’t care how many number ones you have at the box office, I don’t care how much they say you’re great, don’t believe it. Just stay in your lane and do what you’re supposed to do.
Tyler Perry
A brand can have huge hype but still only be a tiny business.
Aslaug Magnusdottir
You’re an island no matter what you do. I think it’s very dangerous to use popularity as your identity in life. So you have to really know who you are inside, the core person, and follow what is true rather than follow what is hype.
Donny Osmond
Modi Model of Development is more a hype than reality, and the Congress has always stood for inclusive development.
Preneet Kaur
As a player, NBA All-Star Weekend contains a lot of joy and a lot of excitement. Even with all the hype built into the game, it’s really a special honor to be selected among many great players.
Scottie Pippen
I’m completely removed from any hype that comes my way.
Justin Timberlake
I’d gone from being this art student messing about with music to this girl with a record deal, magazine front covers and all this hype. In many ways, it was everything I ever wanted, but when it happened all I felt was total, paralysing fear.

I’m an exciting fighter and I always live up to the hype, unlike some other fighters who disappoint.

The hype man’s job is to get everybody out of their seats and on the dance floor to have a good time.
Flavor Flav
Music is a huge part of my life when I am on the road, working out, or preparing for a game. It is something I always go back to, and it is something that motivates me. It gets me hype before a game.
Giannis Antetokounmpo
People make the mistake of drinking the Kool-Aid, believing your own hype, letting people tell you you’re this or you’re that or you’re too this.
Kat Dennings
I don’t know why people can’t believe that I can be mellow. In real life, I’m goofy around people I know but my music portrays me to be hype when most of the time, I’m actually mellow.
NLE Choppa
Ninja was able to survive its own hype and become a very strong label.
I think that big, sort of theatrical relaunches tend to set you up for failure and hype.
Tina Brown
Chris Kyle was a human being, a Texan, Navy SEAL, father, husband, brother, friends to many, and a hero to many; this, at a time when we need all the heroes we can get. I knew him to be a good person, regardless of all the hype floating around in the media.
Brandon Webb
Don’t accept or be crippled by the media hype that aging is bad or shameful.
Valerie Harper
I fell for my own hype. I had too many people saying I couldn’t be beat, and I actually fell for it.
Stipe Miocic
