The Rise of Hopsin
ILL MIND OF HOPSIN 5 #hopsin
In an age where Rap and Hip-Hop are easily blamed for all that is wrong with this world, one man known as ‘Hopsin’ rises out of the shadows to spit some knowledge in your kepi. Unlike most positive Hip Hop artist, …we know, sounds like an oxymoron, Hopsin doesn’t kowtow to the masses. He doesn’t care about being politically correct as to not offend the record labels or the Suburban mom shelling out $13.98 at the local Wall-Mart to keep her brood in the know. Hopsin tells it like it is. You might say ‘ILL MIND OF HOPSIN 5 #hopsin’ is sort of a modern day “Scared Straight” tactic. We’ve all seen those guys before, dressed shabbily as they pull up to your local school in an old van that was parked by the river. Before you dismiss this lyrical mastermind as another flash in the pan, we ask you to just sit back and take a listen.
Hopsin has gained high popularity on YouTube, where many of his songs accompanied with music videos are uploaded, most remarkably “Sag My Pants”, uploaded in October 2010, and “Ill Mind of Hopsin 4″, uploaded in July 2011, with the former having over thirteen million views and the latter having just over twelve million (both as of June 2012). On July 18, 2012, his 27th birthday, he released “Ill Mind of Hopsin 5″, which received over 4,000,000 views within 96 hours.
With the release of ILL MIND OF HOPSIN 5 #hopsin, the rise continues.
