For sure, I still hear lots of it on Spotify. Also, a large proportion of the tracks that get released on Bandcamp each day are still instrumental hip hop or similar so it seems to be as popular as ever as far as I can tell.

How it measures up against lyrical hip-hop and or other underground genres of a similar type i'm not sure, but I do know there a some very very popular 'chill hop/lofi hip hop' YT channels and Spotify playlists which are all instrumental.

I agree - most stuff I've heard is jazz or lo-fi.
