Probably the same thing as with every other popular genre - forefathers had a good idea/songs, then everyone copied it. Or tried to anyway. Most of this soykaf sounds boring, derivative or uninspired anyway, so for studying I stick with ambient like Stellardrone or Arctica.
I'm just gonna repeat what the melon said "lo-fi hip hop is millenial's version of ambient music". By that definition alone, I'd say the "creativity" behind it doesn't really matter since its music meant to be played in the background to add "ambience" to something, and for that, lo-fi hip hop does its job well!
And as for if I listen to it: yeah, but I prefer lo-fi house!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXoLtaQapbo

Sorry, I'm not a virgin.
lol, thanks for reminding me of that.
