  • Keep up with Hopsin

Upcoming Shows

“The whole thing that got me here was controversy,” admits Hopsin. In 2010, The Panorama City, California native’s back was against the wall. He was unhappily signed to Eazy-E’s former label with a debut (Gazing At The Moonlight) failing to meet his artistic and commercial expectations after years of acting on a major network and a feature film. Hardly a “kiddie rapper,” the emcee took to the Internet and released, “Sag My Pants,” an instant rewind. “I lashed out against Ruthless Records. I knew that would have some shock value. But at the time, I had to do whatever I could do.” Hopsin’s survival mechanisms have guided him through life. As a youth placed in Special Education classes, Hop overcame the obstacles to become a video editor, music producer in addition to rapper. He is also co-founder of the low profile indie-powerhouse Funk Volume, currently with 100,000 YouTube subscribers and 145,000 Facebook Likes. This 2012 XXL Freshman is at the top of his class.
In an era defined by cosigns and flashiness, Hopsin and his Funk Volume cohorts took to the rapper’s basement. Raised on the music of Eminem and 50 Cent, Hop studied how to engage fans, both with sharp lyricism and careful branding. Also having a passion for video production, Hop succeeded in going viral without big budgets. “I want people to know it’s a Hopsin video. A lot of things matter: Colors, cuts, wardrobe, and acting. Some rappers come out and look so fake instantly. You just gotta learn how to make yourself into something that there’s not a lot of things about you that people can knock.” On his self-released sophomore album, Raw, Hopsin embodied a confidence in the vein of Hip Hop legends. “I realized we had something. I made $4,000 in one day off that album. It’s still a lot to me today, but back then, I was living off just a few dollars a week.” Following, Hop was performing for hundreds nightly on the I Am Raw Tour. The mastermind recalls, “I knew things were taking off a lot bigger and faster than we expected.”
In the three years since Raw, Hopsin has steadily supplied his thousands of album-buying fans with free music, notably his “Ill Mind Of Hopsin” series. The artist is still fearless in maintaining the spirit of lunchroom battles with SwizZz years ago; “I don’t care to burn a bridge if I didn’t want to cross it anyway.” In the meantime, he appeared on Tech N9ne’s video single “Am I A Psycho?” as well as a Top 3 album by Insane Clown Posse, The Mighty Death Pop. “The key thing is I don’t hang around bullshit artists who convince me to make bullshit songs. I just hang in my basement with the same people I’ve always hanged with. I’m the same guy; I haven’t changed.”
With cover stories and a plethora of seven-figure YouTube content, the self-made talent is sticking to his formula on his third LP, Knock Madness. “It’s gonna be hard to top—I’m calling it right now,” he boasts, claiming it’s just “an enhancement” of his work. Moreover, he wants to punctuate his career. “This will probably be my last album for a long time.” Elaborating, the recluse promises “the biggest tour I’ve ever done, and I’m leavin’ for a while” as devotes his attention to Funk Volume.
While controversy may have made Hopsin a star, skill and courage made him a fan favorite. Whether making art in his basement, crowd-surfing or skiing Down Under, Hopsin has the attitude and charisma that makes Hip Hop unpredictable again.

            ever hear Hop is Back ”if you hand me your shit ill toss your demo tape” haha im a rapper to but dont ask rappers to view you music especially rap collectives such as funk volume, odd future, black hippy ect. go to a get a fuckin record deal

          • Morce52 May 16, 2014 at 2:46 pm #

            I know it seems right to push your music on an established mc, but honestly FV fans do not want to see that shit all over this website. We come here for info and music videos etc involving OUR favorite artist. Not to scroll through thousands of post on how everyone else is such a badass mc that can “smash the game” reality check if you were such a badass you would have made some steps into the industries door by now. Also I know tons of talented artist that have never made it or got discouraged because it is hard. Trying to ride on the coat tails of someone famous will not work unless your Courtney love. So if you still think you have what it takes put some time into it and go old school with promotion get outside and get your name in your cities mouth. Start local before global. Don’t sit in front of the computer posting the same shit on every artist you can think of pages. Then lean back and think you accomplished something by typing for hours. No fame is not handed to anyone except lil Romeo. Plus FV gives you wanna b mcs a chance every year DFUOB, enter that and they will listen you probably won’t win because of flawless, but it does get you noticed. Also guerrilla marketing DOES work make stickers, posters whatever and if your too lazy, outsource to your local graffiti writer and if they like you will have no problem helping you get your name out. All things that are worth it take time and a huge commitment. I didn’t mean to start off negative but I am tired of seeing the same type of post on a page I come to to support an mc I like. Put in the work yourself and at the end you will feel better that you don’t owe anyone for your success. Just my two cents

            these dudes hatin on Hop, he bout to make them stop. Punch em in the mouth till they cant even talk. Then break both they legs so that they cant walk.

          • Krissy July 8, 2015 at 4:38 pm #

            Seriously, all of you conform to I’ll mind 5. Dumb bitches.

        • G-Dog October 29, 2013 at 11:05 am #

          it’s the illest mc to ever walk on the planet. when they look into Hop’s eyes, wack rappers get manic and they panic and spit at him with no practice then he takes their lyrics and smashes them. so its safe to say when Hopsin’s about to explode, it looks like a meth lab, YEEEP!!

          • whitegirlcrazy123 November 4, 2014 at 1:17 pm #

            yeah, i agree with you but to tell you the truth EVERYONE gets surprised when they hear the hop.

        • seth January 29, 2015 at 10:39 am #

          hop your musics insane thats why i like it make more freestyles and albums best lyrical precision ive ever heard

      • Luke Fitzpatrick November 16, 2013 at 7:42 am #

        If you look at the knock madness cover’s you will see its a subliminal message. The front is Hopsin being tied up and buried alive while the back is Marcus is holding a shovel. What it shows is Marcus is retiring Hopsin for now, this does not mean he’s completely done with Hopsin just shelving him for a while that’s why he’s still alive so Marcus can dig him back up if he needs him but for now Marcus is done with Hopsin until further notice

        • Joshua Hewitt December 19, 2013 at 12:02 am #

          Hopsin, you have given me much inspiration music, life, and relationship wise, thanks you did great you had a great run…but your not done yet.
          Love ya Hop, and maybe when you come back you’ll hear the Name Trig Crazy in the underground. See you later man.

        • Zac Flowsyk February 13, 2014 at 10:17 am #

          yeah and its also saying, not just that he’s not making music anymore for a while, but also in one of the new songs (sorry i havnt memorized the tracklist lol, i think its Caught In The Rain) “Its time to put my alter ego aside” and i saw a recent interview about how he wants to show the raw him. Not to say thats hes not always been raw as it gets, but now youre no longer hearing the emotions of hopsin, youre now hearing the emotions of marcus. Lol, does that make sense?

        • Anon November 6, 2014 at 1:22 pm #

          Lol “subliminal message” i agree it’s a metaphor but not a subliminal message, you good though.

      • Colman January 18, 2014 at 5:01 pm #

        I think hop and the rest of fv are just getting started and they really are fixing hip hop , one of the greatest mc’s like hop don’t just stop like that

        • lovely February 4, 2015 at 7:27 pm #

          Hops in has inspired me to listen to his song’s I hope some day I move to Australia and meet Hopsinthat is my lifelong dream

      • Mitchelmctrach March 1, 2014 at 7:09 pm #

        Hop spits some dope shit i don’t think I coud not see him leave this

      • Hop Is The Only True Rap April 5, 2014 at 7:16 pm #

        Hop do what you gotta do, even if you don’t make another album. I do think I speak for all of us when I say we don’t want to see you leave, but whatever your decision is remember you’ve made an impact on all our lives and you truly are the definition of RAW.

      • Kyle May 3, 2014 at 6:59 am #

        I know he is the best i used to listen to all these other rappers but then i found hopsin and he was my role model he said shit that was real and had such a dope flow he was better than eminem

        • Amy May 21, 2014 at 1:55 pm #

          Way better.

      • will tompkins September 9, 2014 at 11:06 pm #

        Hopsin i know u probably dont read these but i look up to u… well i look up to the words u write in ur songs… i mean i dont know if what u spit is really u or not i mean u sound believable but how can i follow in the footsteps of a rapper i dont know the truth about… i hope u come out with another album that explains the real you

      • Jacob E September 16, 2014 at 9:34 am #

        KM isn’t going to be his last album i think he is putting out another one before he takes a break from rapping for a year.

Told . if you can email me that would be great

    • Nico September 12, 2013 at 9:51 pm #

      There is hardly an rap I appreciate – probably because most of my exposure to it is the trash over-played on the radio.

      It didn’t take long listening to your music before I was baffled at how much I loved it!

      Keep producing!

        You obviously don’t listen to Hopsin, one of his famous inspirational lines was “You wanna succeed, you have to try, or one day you’ll get older and regret it all cause you can’t provide.”

        Shut up.

      • Chris W June 16, 2014 at 2:02 pm #

        I missed the Toronto show, but I totally agree. It would be most dope if Hop came thru Buffalo, especially with the renovations they just did to the waterfront and the Harbor Center now is a better time than ever before to get some real concerts. it would be sweet to see some real rap in this city.

      • OfficialDeviousE July 27, 2014 at 5:58 pm #

        I agree but i really am pissed because of what happened on the KM tour i was supposed to open for Hop and he completley just shut the shit down lost alot,of respect and until he proves himself back to his,loyal fans such as,myself then i wont change my mind

    • Phil March 27, 2014 at 10:35 pm #

      I just disovered Hopsin. The Knock Madness album is on par with Marshall Mathers LP2. I love real rap artists. “Old Friend” is true to my heart. Panorama City? Shoots, bro. My brother is over there in a board in care facility, after several stints in prison. He used to be a Nuclear Techinican on a submarine for the US Navy. Meth fucked up his bipolar disorder and fried his brain. I hope to share this album with him next time I visit. I hope you don’t lose your faith in God – I just found him again after many years of asking him “why is my life shit?” Now, I truck through every day, with the help of Em and Hop. I’m blowin’ up and I see so many signs every day, that I can’t help but believe that the last seven years of pain were for my own good. I’m blessed now. Thank you for the real tunes and the great lyrics.

    • will tompkins September 9, 2014 at 11:15 pm #

      Hopsin i know u dont hate rap u just hate whats its come to now a days its all bout sex money and weed i know it gets annoying but for some reason mainstream brain washed us into thinking thats good music and that these songs should inspire every to have the same life goal but it could never happen… i mean really image if every one was a famouse rapper we would go courupt

    • Landon September 10, 2014 at 9:59 pm #

      Hopsin, I’m 15 and a huge fan from the deep south in Mississippi. I respect everything you stand for. I’m a huge fan of old school rap. I had completely lost faith in rap music. It’s all stupid, and it’s all fake. Honestly, you restored my faith in rap. You’ve got the stones, which no one else has, to speak out against trash like Lil Wayne (and others)- who in my opinion is the main cause of the death of hip-hop. You’ve strengthened my faith in Christianity, and helped me realize that humans are so easy to manipulate. Our society is growing dumber and dumber. People like us have to save as many people as possible because I hate watching it happen in front of my eyes , and I know you do also. Thanks for everything man. You’ve got a lifelong fan until the end. Wishing you the best and the rest of FUNKVOLUME. God bless. – Landon

    • JR September 15, 2014 at 10:09 pm #

      Hop, come on pimp you know you cant leave the game that easy. Anyway,congrats everything you have achieved in this crazy industry. Your the man right now. Don’t forget to ” lose yourself”. Love ya bro. Not gonna ride your d___k.

      The Ill Mind of Hopsin 7, helps me understand that I am not alone in this world. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with
      schizophrenia at the age of 19. I was just SO FUCKING RELIEVED, to see others
      retaliating against the system
      Ok now, I’m ONLY asking for advice from you. Nothing more, I’ll clip a sample of some lyrics at the bottom. I NEED YOU TO KNOW I HAVE A REASON AND A PURPOSE TO SPEAK OUT. I’ve got a crowd out there that are totally mistreated by the
      system TRUST ME I KNO.
      the system puts fear into those who know nothing of it.
      And you wanna know the funny
      Thing. the stage I’m at, I get all kinds of voices. There’s good and there’s bad voices all in one dome piece. I ‘ll pull our my phone and just unload on a notepad everything they say, word for word… And you know how much shit I learn.
      Like about this universe.
      And What’s already revealed for us. Usually the informations right in front of us. AND YOU KNOW HOW FUCKING IRRITATING IT IS, WHEN I DO FIGURE OUT SOME SHIT. AND PEOPLE JUST LOOK AT ME STUPIDLY
      I don’t dig and research b/ c there’s nothing better to do.
      MY FUCKING DAD was
      sentanced to 4 years in prison
      Met my so called godfather who I never met. He was doing a 15 year term, the day that he got released, is the day my dad tossed me to him. I was only 14 years old. By myself! Moving in with a that’s adjusted to prison.
      I DID!eventually come to know him as a godfather or Padrino depending on who we were around. Now I was 14, at that time I’ve never heard about masons or illuminati etc. and it stayed that way. I had to wear a necklace and a medallion of a dragon That was my symbol
      He had told me. I asked what his was he said The eye, we’ll I
      obviously get that now lol
      But still that wasn’t the title that from his mouth. He called them shadows. And we would fly back and fourth from Portland Oregon to MI all the time..,ok I’ll stop there . That’s something I don’t wanna talk about unless the right person can pull me aside at an appropriate time. I’ve got proof! Tons, i got it all on my phone, anyway hop, I’m gonna put the mini sample piece right below.
      And your reading someone else’s lyrics. Without that person there
      Everything fits

      I’m crazed,
      A half brained demon
      one that was blessed, possessed and bread
      by satans semen
      one that can strangle until one quits breathing
      Im a heathen
      And won’t stop till ur bleeding
      An animal I am and it’s time for my feedin
      Bitch I’m ready for this terror to begin
      Cuz I’m armed with an army of legions
      That’ll cause you to breath in,
      Right after you’ve been beatin,
      With ur skull cracked and all bloods leakin

      (Sry I would put more but I love my music)

      • Chris Robb September 18, 2014 at 7:40 am #

        I can go softer that was a bad day. Maybe a lil to aggressive lol, (fast pace )

        • Chris Robb September 18, 2014 at 7:46 am #

          At 15,
          My father removed me from my family,
          With a fantasy
          That set me up for tragedy,

          By casting me
          to predators
          With the intentions to attack me

          Corrupting my brain with
          the cult of personality
          By only revealing evil
          and all it’s actuality

          That alone distracted me
          From our greater purpose that stretches throughout the galaxy
          But still.. It’s hard to rise up
          when you’re stuck
          In zero gravity

          this psychological, psychotic Mentality
          Is a struggle for me in everyday reality
          So I hope he lives happily
          Because it cost a lot naturally,
          Consistently and gradually
          It became his main strategy
          For him to act casually
          As I become the casualty

    • Drake September 26, 2014 at 11:42 pm #

      Is there ever a limit to anything
      As We go beyond stupidity limits that mean nothing
      It’s time to make meaning to something
      Of some else’s thought sit down and think
      Grab a drink and just listen
      To take time to think of the freedom of thought
      As Stupid choices brings me to hell
      From the beginning I need a voice
      Just for myself to be dragged out of this cell
      My state of mind is about to explode
      We all need fucking changes just realize
      What I put into my own time that
      It’s mainly my life as I feel lost
      Theres no right post just for me to pose
      All the fuckin time I always feel like a ghost
      Everything so twisted that someone need to fix it
      As I see no one focusing on other well my self I focus on other
      That I fucking forgot about my self
      I hate it when my kind that is struggling on the streets
      As they always get a second look
      As they realize what alcohol took
      It took my life as I’m trying to make my self from a nothing to a something
      But is there a chance to take
      Well I’m taking it not just glancing at it
      It’s fucking changes

    • JIM October 13, 2014 at 12:23 pm #

      You did decide your purpose! ( as an answer) I am not a rapper. I love word work. You have the courage to ask hard questions. That is why a 41 yr old R.N. is trying to touch base. Your ability is self developed. You even said. ” you are in all of us” . I am a contemplative. However, I have developed my own view. Ive seen 3572 people die. ( many I sat with, many asked) Here is the base issue i guess. Respect.. without wishes or wants. I need nothing.. I’ve been hungry, been broke , been sad, wtf youngblood. been it all. you wont be any solution to my problems. I just admire what you say. Im self taught , self wraught,.! So i guess i just wanted to talk with you. crazy. but still trying. You probably wont have say but at the very least.. Sam Harris.

    • Caleb October 16, 2014 at 12:26 pm #

      Hop i feel like your in my mind. i feel like i can help you with your struggles and vise versa. Please man im telling you.

    • Chris Sayers November 1, 2014 at 10:32 am #

      Hopsin I listened to your song on youtube Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 I have a problem my girlfriend is
      constantly hanging out with this friend of hers and every time he came over to the apartment he had pills that he kept giving my girlfriend and whenever she hangs out with him she gets doped up on the pills and its been happening for days now I can’t stand it because she’s always hanging out with him and I love her very much I don’t want to leave her because she honestly means a lot to me. Also whenever her friend was here she lost money two days and I honestly keep telling her that her friend is using her and I can see that Im very educated just like you and yet I tell her that I’m feeling hurt about her constantly hanging out with him and getting fucked up on pills its become a daily occurrence and her friend buys stuff for her and gets her things to keep her trust its a sign of manipulation and well I’m hurt because I sit there and watch I have talked to my girlfriend about how I feel but yet she can’t understand that it is possible that even though her best friend has known her for 10 years she can’t accept the fact that people can change . Neil Young said it in his song and I quote “And you hang on, hang on, hang on to the words of a liar. You can feel it getting down to the wire. All the hurt you thought was gone has now returned, And every thing she’s laughing at is all you learned. And you let go, let go, let go, ’cause you know you’re getting tired. Can you feel it getting down to the wire? Take the time to close your eyes and look around, ‘Cause anyone who helped you out can let you down. And look out, look out, look out, the voice is now the choir. Can you feel it getting down to the wire?” I am hurting and I was wondering if it was possible if you can come to Wildwood NJ and perform your song “Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 the one where you talked to all those people in the room and told them the truth about what real living is can you do that maybe my girlfriend Stephanie Zook will understand I don’t want to lose her she’s a incredible woman please if you can. Message me.

      • Hopsin January 12, 2015 at 2:56 pm #

        i know how you feel man but sorry i cant get around to that i have alot of work to do with the release of pound syndrome and stop letting her take the damn pills or just leave because she obviously dosent trust you enough to care about what you have to say

      Dear Hop,

      I am 15 and from a small town on the central cost. Not to get too personal, but I come from a broken home where My dad was always in jail as a kid and my single mom was in college, working a job, and taking care of me, my sister, and my brother. I’m writing you this letter to tell you that your music is influential and seriously inspiring. The way that you talk about how drugs are bad, and how you don’t just rap about “bitches”, “cars”, and “money”. Besides your cunning rhymes and lyrical masterpieces, you are set way apart from any other rapper than anyone I have heard. I want to encourage you to keep writing music that everyone looks forward to listening to. Thank you Hopsin.

      A big fan

    • Te RaWai April 20, 2015 at 8:26 pm #

        Hey Hopsin my name is jonathan I grew up loving rock and close minded to most rappers with a few exceptions due to the fake lives they portray there was no truth and emotion that’s until I heard you and tech n9ne I just hope you know I love your true life music and can relate hope much more big success from you.

      • TannaDiamond October 14, 2014 at 1:37 pm #

        Marcus, hey man. My name is Tanna Diamond.. My family calls me Diamond.. I have a passion for writing and freestyling. My name is known on this Rosebud Reservation. Only because I put effort into a lot of thaangs I do.. Anyway, I wanted to say I am a HUGE fan. Like, legit. I listened to “Sag My Pants” for the first time a while ago, and fell in love. Seriously, no doubt. And I really hope you come towards South Dakota. A lot of my friends are huge fans also.. Anyway, I wanted to involve myself because I’m in love with you. Legit. And just because them others girls you got with did you wrong and used you for money, doesn’t mean all girls are like that. Obviously they were GIRLS, and not LADIES. i ain’t telling you “be interested in me because I never did anyone wrong and I never made wrong choices.” I’m just saying. Take chances. And Yeah. Oh! Also, I smoke Marijuana. The herb helps me get through a lot. And even helps me focus. It may take little by little memory of the brain, but it hasn’t had that effect on me. And I’ve been smoking since I was 13. So judge if you’d like, but I still have a Mad Crush on you..
        Truly yours, TannaDiamondLHB.

    Can’t wait for knock madness

  46. JB July 19, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

    I know yall been grinding and doin yall thing and as an artist myself, i truly have the upmost respect for yall movement. i dont like most rappers either because of their message or the fact that they sold their soul to get where they are. But regardless of all that, i really want someone from funk volume to take 4 minutes out of their day and listen to a song that ive made. Im as original as i can possibly be and am more than well rounded. Im 18 and have been recording for only a year and a half but i promise im GIFTED not talented. i do all my own music, write, record, engineer, etc. This is just ONE of many songs i have made and will be making. Its only about 4 minutes long, id appreciate it if someone could listen, preferably Hopsin or Dizzy. Thank yall! I wish yall the best!

  47. Alexis July 19, 2013 at 6:05 pm #

    Hopsin is the best rapper their is. Come to Buffalo, NY and I guarantee I will be their. :)

  48. allan July 20, 2013 at 12:11 am #

    You are the realist rapper out there today, Your gonna take the game over by storm and change that shit. I am inspired to rap as sick as you, But to also carry out message’s. know what i mean…

  49. Jordan July 20, 2013 at 9:39 am #

    Keep up the good work bro. Cant wait for Knock Madness to drop. You need a show a show in dallas!

  50. Ben Sommers July 20, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

    Will Hopsin Ever come to Oklahoma? My dream is to See him in real life. Im A 15 Year-Old Rapper and Hopsin is my inspiration.

  51. Mitch July 20, 2013 at 4:16 pm #

    Artistic, intelligent, and you speak the truth. Ill Mind 5 is amazing social commentary on such a large part of the youth generation. I’m a fan of many of your songs, but I’ve shown many friends who “don’t like rap music” Ill Mind 5 and we all agree that you hit the nail on the head. I saw Funk Volume perform in Baton Rouge, LA last year and you guys killed it. Keep doing what you’re doing.

  52. Clay Loehr July 23, 2013 at 9:53 pm #

    Hopsin you’re the fuckin dopest rapper. can’t wait till Nov 26th but u should retweet me on twitter @clay_loehr22 . I try all the time

    Will there be a way to pre-order Knock Madness? If so, is there any way that I can know when?

    Hopsin. You are my idol. You were skating at stoner today and i really wanted to meet you but i was down in malibu. Im leaving LA tomorow. I really hope i get to meet you one day. Your music changed my life and you skate like a badass mother fucker. Thanks for being so awesome

  59. Evan July 29, 2013 at 12:04 pm #

    Hey Hop, I would just like to say that every word you and SwizZz say. The messages you hide in every song has literally opened my eyes and I see you problems. Keep up the great work! Maybe if I ever decide to rap I’ll meet you. Have a nice day!

  60. Ryan July 29, 2013 at 11:52 pm #

    You should come to montreal or ottawa, only 8 hours from maine. I want to go see you in concert so bas but always so far. Sucks in canada always so far from concerts. I play your music so loud in my truck trying to promote get people listen to real rapper, fuck this lil wayne gucci man shit. Come around ottawa ill be there!!

  61. the outsider July 30, 2013 at 5:07 am #

    i really like your music but why do we have to wait so long for knock madness

    • Adam August 19, 2013 at 12:38 pm #

      if you think we’ve been waiting too long for this, you haven’t heard of Dr. Dre. Cmon son, you can’t be rushin good music! you think these lyrics come to him just all at once? Real shit takes time, he aint in a rush to satisfy you, he’s in it to satisfy Hopsin and Marcus. Let the dude put his music out when he wants to, you’ll ride his dick anyways!

    • john December 3, 2013 at 7:39 am #

      because he is out all the time doin his skaty tricks

  62. B-15 July 30, 2013 at 11:37 pm #

    i only wish i knew about Hopsin earlier. he puts the things i think about on a daily bases into his songs .i love every song i listen too by him i love his flow , his style, but most of all the message he gives out like from ”ill mind of hopsin 5”.

  63. Shawn G. July 30, 2013 at 11:56 pm #

    Wow. Cant wait for Knock Madness. Iv never been soo excited for a cd to come out. Im just as excited for Knock Madness as I am for the Playstation 4 lol. Your a true inspiration man, so so true. I thought Hip hop wasnt going to last much longer till I heard your music. Cant wait to hear your song with Macklemore. Hes another one of my inspirations along with Logic which Dizzy has already did a song with but I hope to hear more collabs with him.:) Other artist should be begging to get on a track with you guys.

  64. James Levitate Marz August 1, 2013 at 2:10 am #

    Hopsin an inspirational life changing individual , is keeping the legacy of rapping about what is happening in the music industry showing them on how much a fool they are by bringing drugs into the societies life and into the lives of teenaged individuals or groups, Hopsin you amazing bro keep up the good work….

  65. nz maori August 2, 2013 at 5:04 am #

    im stting in a dark room, waiting impatiently like a girlfriend whos waiting for his long lost groom, but hey maybe itll be time for me to leave soon, i havnt eaten in three days and i turn into a monster when theres a full moon. i work 9 to 5 but i still cant fucken make anough, i have to make a move soon or leave my skill to rust, these hoes are friendly but not the ones that can trust, sometimes i feel like im saying these words out loud just because. at night a pencil and some paper will be my best friend, if you close your mind ill leave you behind and itll be your dead end, “oh you cant rap we think your wack” will be their next trend, so heres to hop cus homie you the man, an inspirations to us all “haha” yep amen.

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you|

  74. Ryan August 15, 2013 at 4:17 pm #

    Yo Hopsin just wanted to say that you and Funk Volume got me through some hard times man. I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2010 at the age of 19 and my last chemo was Feb 26, 2013 at the age of 22. I’ve been cancer free for 3 years and almost 7 months but only been a survivor for almost 7 months. Besides Wu-Tang Clan and 2Pac I listened to you and Funk Volume from 2010-2013 heavy all the shit you guys were puttin out man, along with the Wu and Pac y’all literally played a part in saving my life. Without music I woulda gave up but music made me keep my head up and now I’m a survivor and I blast Funk Volumes music nonstop and 2013 you guys are TAKING OVER the whole game in my eyes. Keep it up. I can’t even name a favorite between You, SwizZz, Dizzy, and Jarren. I got mad love and respect for ya all and always will. Keep it one hunnad but I know y’all will. I’m from Denver, Colorado but living in a shithole state right now so I won’t be able to catch any of y’alls shows for a while cause I can’t drive still cause I’m on narcotics for chronic pain still (3 years of chemo therapy done fucked me up) but just know that every day I’m in physical therapy I have a playlist on my iPhone called Funk Volume and that’s the playlist I listen to EVERY day at physical therapy. I got music from you all and you are my inspiration to get up and do physical therapy 3-4 days a week for 1.5-2 hours at a time. You all are a huge inspiration to me. One love my dude. Keep the hot music rollin #FunkVolume2013 #KnockMadness #FuckTheHaters #KeepitMovin #RAW #MOTIVATION.

    I just mainly wanted to let you all know that you played a part in saving a young dudes life. I may be white but I’ve been a hip-hop junkie since I was a little ass kid and I’m glad there’s some new school music (Mainly Funk Volume) that I can listen to, love my 90s hip-hop but I need somethin new too ya know! You guys are the illest and the truth I look up to y’all a lot. Sorry if I sound like I’m dick ridin but I’m speakin from the heart, real recognize real. One love.

  75. Braxton August 15, 2013 at 11:00 pm #

    Come to Canada please ? Anywhere on the east coast of Canada and ill be there :) also want to let you know how inspiring your music is and how much I respect the fact that you don’t do drugs, and you know better than to sell your soul and make your own label. What are the chances of you and Eminem doing a collab ? Everybody wants it ! It would be top of the line shit !! :)

  76. Krysis August 16, 2013 at 9:09 am #

    I just wanted to say that I love your music! You are so talented, not to mention sexy! Keep it up. You should come to New Mexico for a concert, that would be soooo awesome! Much love!

  78. Adam August 19, 2013 at 10:23 am #

    HOPSIN! my favorite rapper since Shady himself. now that I think about it, saw your interview and your comments regarding Yela, thatll be sick!! I bet he could get a collab going with you three. think about it, illest collab of the 2000’s? anyways, I was bummed I didn’t get a chance to see you when you came to Minneapolis last year! I almost tried to buy tickets for October 14th at Cabooze until I noticed it said 2012 lol. I see Dizzy coming around here this year, but you should at least come somewhere around the mid-west before you go to Australia so my buddies and I can come see! (Tired of all these whack asses coming around here, mad enough to throw elbows!) no dick riding, just recognizing real rap. fuck swag rappers, that ain’t hip-hop. Bottomline: Come to MN if you get the chance. One love.

Your message has initiated a reflection that is challenging my entire approach to writing. Thank you for that. I’m proud to share birthdays with a prodigy.

    Dear Hopsin,
    I am your number one fan. I hate to see a smart artist go to waste. Please Hopsin come back. The world needs you! Get back on Fl studio and starting dropping them fruity loops like the old days. I own all of your albums. All of your albums are dope. My personal favorite song is “Super Duper Fly” off your album gazing at the moon light. Much Love From Jesup,GA ! Your number one fan!

    hopsin if it wasn’t for you i would’ve been sucked into doing drugs and stupid shit like that but thanks to you I’m not what you explain in the song ill mind of hopsin 5 and you’ve inspired me to be who I’m meant to be if anyone is the best rapper by far you’ve kickfliped all of the other rappers out of the park!

  129. Aaron October 21, 2013 at 1:34 pm #

    Hopsin, I’ll keep it short and simple. If you leave the game after knock madness, the world isn’t going to have very many true artists left. The world wont have a grip on what actual talent sounds like. I encourage you to take time to yourself, but at least drop some singles here and there. You are the best artist of this day and age.

  130. RJ October 21, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    I thought hip hop was dead until i was introduced to your music. You have restored my faith in hip hop. Keep doing what your doing. Different is the way to go, and that’s exactly what your doing man. Major props. I am praying that you make it big and show the world what true hip hop is. Best of luck buddy, change the world.

    Yo Marcus what up man? I realize you must hear this every day but seeing as how its been itchin’ at the baack of my mind I just gotta tell you and say thanks man. Without your music over the past 3 years I’ve been following your extreme career I would probably still be stuck in the same rut. Believe it or not but Marcus, you saved a little bit of my life. For example; Ill Mind of Hopsin 6. Well homie, I am going through the same thing with my mother and have been awhile. Your new tracks are sick as fuck! Keep up the success!

    Ay Yo Hop man you need to come to savannah man. love the music keep it up man and try and do another collaboration with swizZ much love one of your biggest fans

  147. Shayla Kuno October 31, 2013 at 10:00 pm #

    Despite your battles of becoming viral and how hard the industry is with all the fake nonsense that is produced nowadays you were resilient and persistent and all the hard work is paying off! That just goes to prove that no matter who you are, if you are good at something you love doing then never give up! You’re an inspiration to all, a lyrical genius at that! Your music is real and speaks the truth! Spreading your music down underrrrrr! And keen to see you live at the Espy in Melbourne! And after your tour is over don’t stop making music! That would be bad for us all! Much love for Funk Volume! <3

  148. Woytas (Poland) November 2, 2013 at 10:47 am #

    Yo Hop any chance of visiting Poland? You probably think Poland is not worth visiting but You’d be surprised how many fans You have here. There are lots of people who dig every word You write. I know there was supposed to be one concert in Kraków but it didn’t happen unfortunately. I hope You don’t believe those stereotype opinions about Poland, some people still think we live in a communistic regime, wear bear skins on our backs and eat raw meat ;D. Give us a chance Hop!

  149. Woytas (Poland) November 2, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    Why did somebody delete my previous post? I just asked if it was possible for Hop to do a concert in Poland some time in future. You make great music Hop and true.

  150. Veronica November 2, 2013 at 8:49 pm #

    Im going to see Jarren Benton in Seattle, Washington on November 13th iam so EXCITED and cant wait!!! Im truly Jarren Benton’s biggest fan(: I recently seen a video on youtube of a fan performing onstage with Jarren they sang “Skitzo” and I swear if i had the oppurtunity to perform with Jarren the same song i would amaze everyone that is going to be there!! Just thought id mention this before the concert and pray you guys would consider making not just my wish come true but my dream too. (: nd I had one last question, Im also one of Hopsin’s biggest fans he has been a huge positive inspiration nd influence in my life & im very thankful i had the chance to hear his music!! I wish someday i will be able to see him in concert as well. I looked at Hopsin tour dates & locations and noticed he isnt coming to Washington state at all.. I really wish he can come perform here in Washington someday. I know all your schedules are always constantly busy, but Hopsin would you consider coming to Washington for a concert anytime soon?? (: -MUCH LOVE!!!

  151. Andre Garcia (Ghost Writer! November 6, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    i listen, think and concentrate and i write my own lyrics and i want to be in your label one day.

  152. Anika November 6, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

    Hopsin has to be my all time favorite.!! I’ll be there to see you November 18th.!! SO excited.!! (: Much Love

  153. Ian H. November 7, 2013 at 10:56 am #

    yo hop you should make a song with Eminem!

  154. Dray Biggs November 8, 2013 at 3:37 pm #

    Yo Hop just listened to “Have You Seen Me” and I wanna let you know you’re better than all the bull shit that surrounds you. Don’t let the hype of a corrupt and selfish industry influence how you’re feeling. All your fans are gonna tell you they love you but in all honesty most of them love your music. It’s some shit that the rap industry de-humanizes artists’ music so much but thats the world we live in. Don’t make music for your fans make music like “Have You Seen Me”. Use it as a tool to help figure yourself out before you try and fix other peoples’ problems. Much love man you are an inspiration to young artists such as myself. #respect

  155. Darius November 8, 2013 at 9:39 pm #

    Ayy Hopsin yuh the fukkin man. If Knock Madness yo last album when I get my 1st mill ima slap you wit that shit. You fukkin the game a new asshole, and yuh real. This cumin frum a Detroit hood nigga. Cum on man quit plaayin. Yuh trippin. The game aint got too many of us real mc’s. N I feel Pac and Biggie would defend me….. Em…. ODB…. n Big L n Pimp C all would defend me too.

  156. Brandon November 12, 2013 at 8:43 pm #

    Hey Hop, I know you most likely wont reply but why will you stop after Knock Madness? I am disapointed just thinking about it and so are almost all of your fans I bet.

  157. uk November 14, 2013 at 7:36 am #

    hop u make rap music good love the meaning behind your music
    so to all u fucking drug taking retards stop doing shite that’s going to kill u

  158. Jalen Miles November 14, 2013 at 10:08 am #

    Hop thanks for not selling out too many black people are quick to sellout and go mainstream and get caught up in the industry. Notice all these rappers and stars are turning out gay and being killed. When people think “illuminati” they think devil worshipers but they don’t understand that its a real problem not just within the music industry but the nation itself its a “one world government” and the media tries its best to keep black people down thats why we have the poorest neighborhoods we go around killing each other and get locked up in prison working for a nickel a day, and obamas “gay agenda” he refused to give black people reparations. But he will gladly allow gay people to get married. DO ME A FAVOR LOOK UP IRRITATED GENIE on youtube if you see the comment than hit me up if you like what you find

    • Jalen Miles November 14, 2013 at 10:28 am #

      He will break down everything from the industry to where black people came from and history i noticed in an interview you said you didnt know what to believe well this is a start to your answer

  159. Brian Howard November 14, 2013 at 11:21 pm #

    Hey Funk Volume group. I have a simple question and I’ll try my best to keep it short given you have a lot of fans. I was wondering is SwizZz will ever release his album? You said the only reason it’s not already dropped is because it wouldn’t make money (this was in the Lucifer Effect) I may be the only one, but I like SwizZz’s flow. I think he’s a mix between Hopsin and Dizzy. So if you could just release any information on that topic it’d be appreciated, as I don’t think I’m the only person who is wondering. Also, please check out my Instagram for graffiti and old school hip hop @thebrianhoward

  160. Jason November 15, 2013 at 3:49 am #

    hey hop i just wanted to say im a huge fan. i think your shits real and your opinions on things are on point. also i would like to know if you could give any advice cause im also a rapper and am trying to get out a bit more now. im on facebook at reaper1223. please check it out and hmu at i have been told by many people that i need to get my music out and get a deal and it would be a honor to sign with you and the rest of the fv family.

  161. Brayan Sanchez November 16, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    Bro…I just heard your interview video where you were talking about how your pretty confused about pretty much everything. I love Jesus man and I also rap but I definitely seek after answers and have more questions than answers a lot of times (which is normal) but I feel like I can help you out brotha. I put a link to a song of mine so if you really get this you can kinda feel where I’m coming from, but hmu man seriously I love u bro. I pray for u seriously and this isn’t to team up and be the next rap crew just if you really see this I wanna just talk to you and be that iron that could possibly help sharpen u man. God bless

  172. Devin November 25, 2013 at 1:52 am #

    Whats my purpose by hopsin or i should say marcus is the truth, no one opens there eyes, were paper slaves and lost in the of computers and microsoft, no one owns earth its not ours, our country lies to us everyday, and if we dont make a change in our government were fucked, hes right, “the human being is what we dont know how to be” we have lost our true value of being human, theres so much more to life than money, bitches and drugs, it fuckin tears me up on how much our fuckin government and our system is so fucked. And its got me fuckin confused, humans destroy everything in their path. “I cant stand humans i hate humans but im human” i feel that deeply in my heart and spirit!” The problem is killin my mind, god give me a sign maybe im trippin, tell me this life is worth livin” i feel that way everyday of my life. Marcus is on a higher spiritual level than majority of people” i sit alone in my room feelin so damn confused cuz i dont know who i am” thats so me and i drive my self crazy…. ” im soul searchin, its like im livin life with no purpose” i feel this all of it, i may not be famous but i face the same struggle everyday, what is my purpose and what is the meaning to life? Life has only the meaning you give to eat but what meaning should i give to it especially when the world and our government is as corrupt as it is, were all blinded, if only we would just open up our eyes and brain then we could see wtf is going on and change it. “If i have to hide the truth to live then ima die just like my idols” i cant even describe or explain or ever know where to describe or explain how that make me feel, its so true, same as all his love songs our whatever you wanna call em, i feel that shit, my girl got pregnant with my son and left me with nothing besides a broken heart and a spirit that to this today still remains toren, love is all want, and all humans search for it in some sort of way, if it wasnt for love what would be the point of living? To this day im stull searching for love or a significant other, ” unhappy here with no wife dont ask me i dont know why” straight up i feel that! I feel all his song and all his albums, “chris dolmeth” and “old friend/ ill mind of hopsin 6″ meth and drugs tare you down, my parents were tweekers and my mom wouldnt come home for days, i remember morning when i would wake up and they were gone and id have to climb on the cupboards to get my little sisters something to eat, and nights when she would leave me with my step dad and id go into the bathroom holding a necklace she gave to me and cry, i love my mom and i will always love her and she will always love me, my point is sobriety is important, macklemore said” guns thats america the drugs are what they gave to us and sex sells its self dont judge tell its you” people gotta hear and feel the deeper purpose in music, marcus/hopsins message in his music is good, music is a way to reach people and vent what ur feeling, its to send a message or release the pain, feelings and or problem that your feeling or your dealing with, you dont release it to hurt other people, you release vent and make you feel better and hope than someone can relate, its hard for me to explain but thats a summary haha, music is magic, and all the rappers outthere always talkin about drugs and bitches and money is bringing us down and makin you/us think that gangbangin and selling drugs and get money is cool and it gets you/us somewhere in life when it doesnt, We the people need to change our lives and ourselves and our government, it says in the decleration of independence that when a government deprives its people of their god giving rights that we are born with. And when a government becomes corrupt as all governments eventually do, it is the duty of the people to reastablish or over throw the government and establish it to what fits the people and their liberty and right to pursuit of happiness and their safety. Hopsins message is to inform and mine is. Rapping and rap music has been my life and without music i would be dead, and with out a piece of paper and and pen i would be dead, anyways ive typed alot and rambled for a minute. take what you want our of this long ass comment ive wrote. Peace

    • Frank December 3, 2013 at 10:40 pm #

      That is a long ass comment but I 100% agree
      It’s important for hip hop fans to hear this album because it stands for more than just hot bitches,money,and drugs. Right now the rap game is corrupted with shitty rappers like 2 Chainz, Wale, Rick Ross and all of YMCMB. Even well-known
      rappers like Kanye, Drake and Lil Wayne can’t pull it off like they used to. Every well known rapper dropped an album this year -Eminem,Lil Wayne,Drake,Jay-Z,Kanye and the rap game is still more weak than it’s ever been. In the past 2 years, the only good rap albums that came out were good kid m.A.A.d city, The Heist, and Knock Madness. The only other album that I am somewhat looking forward to is childish
      Gambino’s album and so far, I hate every song that he has released for that album. I have no faith in hip hop anymore. Knock Madness is really the only thing keeping my head up right now

      • Alberto March 31, 2014 at 10:53 pm #

        How could i talk to hopsin I’m trying to become a rapper but i dont know how to get started and i want to ask him some questions about how he started

    Hopsin your album is worth the wait man. Raps are awesome man. It’s awesome you signed the preorder man. It sucks that I didn’t get to see your show in Denver last week cause I wanted to be there so bad, but I was super sick, but I can’t wait to see you when you come on your next tour. Knock Madness is awesome man.

  176. Iky November 26, 2013 at 11:30 am #

    Love your music hopsin, You are like my fav rapper!

    Just watched the hopsin interviews on knock tv. Gotta say u speak the truth man. Every word said was inspiring. Just constantly writing rhymes now.
    So here’s a little nighttime tribute rap.

    Hopsin inspiring, he’s rerouting the wiring, will step up to em’s spot when he leaves for retirement, hop’s starting a fire and the flames are getting higher, I listen to u when my situation is dire, but I’m just preaching to the choir, cuz this just a post in ur comments section, just know that ur for real, good night man.

  183. Ivan Gonzalez December 3, 2013 at 8:11 am #

    hopson, dude, you are my hero. You allowed me to see things i didn`t before and let me be true to myself. I am an asian and people at school was racist at me and because of your music i can stand up for myself. Your music is raw and has great lyris. This is just to tell you what much i appreciate also because i start skating which is everything for me now. you probably wont see this but i just needed to tell you. how much you helped my life without knowing. Keep saving hip hop. actually everything. !

  186. Richard Hogan December 4, 2013 at 5:06 am #

I mean i know your a busy man and dont get back to everyone but i just wanted you to know man ever since discovering you its helped me out you know with my drug addiction and mental issues and the things you say and your mind on how this society and world is fucked these days and just going down hill and all like man we share the same point of view and feel like we could have a great convo and discussion on such topics man keep that mind set up because its something the world needs now these days man. Well i pray i hear from you man and keep up the hard work.

  190. Luis Martinez December 4, 2013 at 10:22 pm #

    Ima just start by sayin you are the best rapper in the game as of right now. you are not a 2pac or mac dre but you are different which is what I like about ur rap style. from one of ur first songs to sag my pants is when I really started liking ur rhymes. its not only the rhymes but ur flow goes perfect with every song you make. I live in the bay area,california and it would be the rawest thing ever if u came to the bay to do a show and when I hear if u are I will be the first one getting that ticket. anyways keep doin ur thang homie.

    Dear Hopsin
    I’ve listened to a lot of your music. I like a lot of it. Every message I can relate to very well. Anyways the reasoning why i’m typing this comment is to ask you a quick question. If you aren’t thinking about doing anymore albums’ after Knock Madness, would you consider still being featured on other artist’s tracks? Thank you for your time From: Brandon Ayllon (i-own)

  196. isaiah green December 9, 2013 at 8:48 pm #

    Thank you Marcus. You venting through your music is powerful and deep. Thank you.

  197. Jon December 11, 2013 at 12:49 pm #

    What’s up with all these people leaving comments asking for Hopsin to give them his email so they can chat or to hang out with him. Are you serious? Is the music not good enough for you that you have to be in the same room as him and have his attention? He’s not going to reply back to you and he’s not going to give you his personal email so just forget about it.

  201. Alex Lavdas December 12, 2013 at 6:46 pm #

    yo hop! I just started listening to you about a year or so ago, but ur stuff is amazing. I love knock madness! One thing I would really love though, and i am probably asking for a lot..but I would love to chill with you one day. I realize you’re busy with your tour right now so it wont be anytime soon, but that would be my dream. I live in a small town in Jersey. I know it probably wont happen but if you could make that happen that’d be cool. Thanks

  202. Colin December 13, 2013 at 5:05 pm #

    Dude, Hopsin, I ain’t “riding your dick” or anything, but I just saw your video “Ill Mind of Hopsin 5”, and it’s like something just CLICKED inside of me I was MIND-BLOWN that a rapper thought the same things I thought about all those pieces of shit!

  204. Ray December 20, 2013 at 4:45 pm #

    Hop I noticed you liked to rap about yourself and about the people around you. But I think it’s time you expand. I can’t say I was a big fan of Knock Madness, but that’s because I thought it would be more. Like your religion. Why don’t you dedicate a song to Jesus. Or the news, why don’t you tell people your opinion on the issues in America. Then theirs your country. Maybe you should speak on why you love or hate this country. Talk bad about John Allee or Karla LaVey. You could speak about the youth. Nowadays these kids are following Miley Cyrus by partying, having mindless sex and doing whatever the heck they want. Why don’t you set them straight. Be a role model possibly. Rap about your fans or something. This is just a suggestion.

  205. Miguel December 22, 2013 at 6:53 pm #

    You should come to Boston MA dude. I know plenty of people who’d buy your tickets.

    Hey hopsin. Im a solider in the army. Right now I just got stationed in Germany. If it wasn’t for your music along with a few other artists It wouldn’t have been a easy transition away from my family. I see all the tours you are doing right now and I wanted to let you know there a lot of fellow soldiers here with me that would live if you came to Germany to do a show. Closest thing we are getting to music in fucking drake in Frankfurt in February. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Would love to see FV come to Germany sometime in the future

    Man i’ve just enoyed a nice spliff while listening to Still Got Love For You from ya new album. When that chorus hit me i could feel a small part of me dying inside, it’s an unbelievable feeling when you can relate to the content in music. Bitch told me not to buy tickets for your show ’cause she me one for my 20th birthday, which she didnt even showed up to. It’s about a month ago, i doubt i’ll see that ticket might aswell buy one myself before it’s sold it.
    See you in Denmark 14.04.2014 Lille Vega, fuck the place up.

    Sup man, will your tour be heading down Australia ever again. Didn’t hear your beats till mid last year n found out youd been n gone!!!
    If not mad respect all the way from OZ!!!
    Knock madness- loved the rawness. Im going through a similar situation, not knowing who I am anymore, not having a purpose feeling lost…
    Inspired me to wanna find myself again….
    Once again much love from Oz

    Marcus I just wanted to say that I’m just a kid and your music has inspired me, no, not just your music but who you are and were as a person inspired me to become a rapper and poet, I’ve been a musitian my whole life, music gave me a way out of all of my problems and when I found your music and started listening to you and Wu Tang,Eminem,EasyE and such I started writing raps and slam poems. When I started highschool I was really depressed and you saved my life with your music I hope you can continue to save lives with your music I ask that you never give up on music I know you have a large fanbase but if you responded to this I would be overjoyed I love you Marcus thank you for giving me life

      We have the same name!!! and I totally agree with you Marcus is a life saver! I’ll love him forever!

  214. Grisd January 9, 2014 at 2:09 pm #

    I am not the biggest fan of rap but hopsin you are the exception in your music I find something that is rare to hear from any song produced in this era not just rap I mean every genre of music and that is genuine emotion. Each line of your songs feels like it had your heart mind and soul put into it. For example the fiends are knocking gave me the chills it was incredibly done congrats on all your success and good luck with all your projects

  215. Tyrrell January 11, 2014 at 9:39 am #

    Your music is phenomenal. I’m from Canada and you aren’t very well known here yet. But I liked your music so much the first time I listened to it that I pre ordered Knock Madness and even still I listen to your music every single day. My girlfriend isn’t too fond of it but I make her listen anyways haha. You are a great role model for these misguided teens and I plan on recommending your music to everyone I know. Please do not stop making music, people like you are going to make a difference and change the world. Also if you have any radio edits. I can more than likely get a couple of your songs on our local radio station, I used to work there. Take care man, and keep producing !

    I just want hopsin to hear this and see what he thinks. I don’t want money, power, or a higher spot on the f’ed up triangle we call life. Just like a nicely done or stop impersonating me would do nicely.

    i know it could be better but i’m busy!

    Gday hop thought I heard you asking for some kind of help kicking life in the balls, need a change?
    catch a plane up to 14,000 feet then get out, now I know skydiving isn’t for everyone, if you really want to feel a change in life, work sucks, life has you down, maybe that bitch just wont quit. It doesn’t matter what the problem is, they can all be solved by taking the biggest step into free fall.

I digg. I rap too not as good as you but it keeps me at peace as words can be said without being looked down on. I always get looked at wierd for expressing myself through bright clothes too but complimented on, I dont get it. I try to not stand out but stand out regardless so why not live it up! umm.. Anyways 1luv and keep it up! White chick from the hood.

    Hi Marcus, whats up? Its nice to hear a artist be honest for once in this “New Age” rap, and its also nice to hear that you havent changed from who you are and that music hasnt made you into what the media wants you to be. Sorry if it sounds like im sucking up, its just it makes me happy to know there are still some artist who know about good music, unlike others who talk about Ice T, Ice Cube, 2 Pac, 2 Live Crew, De La Sol, Wu Tang Clan, etc… So knowing that there is gives me hope for the day that i try get serious about my music, and also makes me hopeful that I can meet you guys some day but I probably need to learn how to skateboard first, well um opps I have been rambling too much anyways good luck on your tour Hopsin and also with your break from rapping. I will always be a fan because your music has kept me up and stopped me from making so many selfish decisions. . . because it lets me know there is someone who can understand what I have been through. Anyways,good luck Marcus.

  225. Mary Jane February 7, 2014 at 8:47 pm #

    Hopsin your music is amazing i love all of your songs they all are beautiful to me like real music Tupac used to be my favorite rapper then my friend was like “you heard of funk volume?” now i am hooked on your music. I love you <3 I hope you keep it up man.

  226. Dente February 11, 2014 at 3:16 am #

    Hey Hop, you should definitely come down under to Australia and give is a concert that’d be dope. Anyways cheers for the great music.

  227. Austin February 12, 2014 at 9:03 pm #

    hopsin i dont know if you will ever read this but i used to smoke everyday and drink all the time and your song ill mind 5 changed my life it made me realized how my whole life turned into smoking and drinking so i thank you please don’t stop what you do i have never liked hip-hop or rap before i used to love country but after i went to Pops this past weekend i am in love with your music please don’t stop what you do much love!

  228. Crimson February 15, 2014 at 11:07 pm #

    I’d really like to work with you, Hopsin, on at least one song. I’m trying to make a career with one of my talents.

    Man I was just lookin at your twitter. I’m just a fan, nothing more than a hip hop head. You are not only my favorite rapper in the game right now but one of my favorites of all time. Idk what was going on on that tour but man you just gotta remember that you are where you are because of God and you have your real fans here for you. Trust me, wer not all 2 faced dick riding fans, we can be just as real as friends. It’s bumming me out that your so depressed. Man just remember you got your real fans here for you no matter what happens

  231. Tyler February 18, 2014 at 12:01 am #

    I was at you Feb. 17 concert, and I just want to say you electricfied the place like nothing I’ve ever seen. You’ll always be my favorite rapper because you’re music speaks to me like nobody else’s, I’ve lost friends to drugs, cheated on in serious relationships, and screwed over but “friends”. Your music just helps me remember things will always get better even through the shitty days

  235. Brandon February 26, 2014 at 9:52 am #

    I can understand your taking a break from the music scene to do some soul searching. I actually think its a great idea rather than the alternative we see in the music industry where people get so wrapped up in that life they lose themselves in the process. you definitely have talent and I always look forward to new music but not at the cost of someone losing themselves (Mark 8:36). I wish more people did something like this so we had more music with an actual meaning to it. I recently been through it myself, I had to take a step back and I realized how far off track I had got. I never really read my b ible much until then now Im a lot closer to God than I have ever been and everything else is so much more clear. Anyways I hope you find what your looking for.

  236. JamesRoberts February 27, 2014 at 12:01 am #

    On Facebook it says your coming to Calgary AB, Canada on May 5th but on here it doesn’t say. So I was wondering will you be stopping in Calgary or no?

    Yo Hop, Me and wifey just seen you at the chance last night. that was a dope fuckin show. you sound nice live. mad clear and basically as good as you sound on your albums. we been huge fans and now even more so after catchin u live. will def hit up any show you do by me every time.cant wait to see what you got in store for us on the next one. funk volume turn it up!

  238. Roman February 28, 2014 at 9:13 am #

    Hop I met you in ann arbor ,Michigan last year. You prolly wont get to read this, but i loved youre album even more than mmlp2 , however long it takes you to put out another album no matter what ill always be a fan, my only request before u go to ausi is a funk volume 2014 and that ep with travis. Anways man i hope all is well in and outside of rap take it easy brother and keep doing what u love, whatever u decide to do retire or just a couple years off u got my support. Oh yeah if u come back to AA you gotta hit the new skate park hmu brah

    I went to see him at the westcott theater in Syracuse, New York he wanted two MC’s to come to the stage my friends were lifting me up to get his attention and sure as shit him and i made direct eye contact and he called me to the stage along with a 13 year old it was my first time being on stage in two years i was in a rap group that performed at showcases but never won any of them however the five minutes of fame was a blessing that i never thought would occur because of the luck I’ve had my entire life, it made me realize that opportunities can occur at any moment and motivated me to get back into hip hop i cant thank him enough for putting on an amazing performance and providing an opportunity to share the stage with his fans so if you are thinking about going make up your damn mind and go you wont regret it!

    I just discovered “Ill Mind Six: Old Friend.” I thought that was high and tight, void of any bullshit, straight to the heart. Then my mind got fucking blown when I heard “Ill Mind Five.” Holy Shit.I’ve never heard knowledge like that from any Rapper. U.S. Poet Laureate Hopsin. You’ll get a hell yes from me.

    I comment each time I especially enjoy a post on
    a website or I have something to add to the discussion. It is caused by the passion displayed in the
    post I browsed. And after this post Hopsin | Funk Volume.
    I was actually excited enough to post a comment ;
    ) I do have a couple of questions for you
    if you usually do not mind. Could it be just me or does it appear like some of these remarks appear like they are left by brain dead individuals?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional places, I would like to keep up with everything new
    you have to post. Could you make a list all of all
    your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    He’s leading people on the path to righteousness with his music and here at Payca Studios, we believe that if he stops rapping; people will get lost again. Let’s hope he doesn’t.

    Dude Hopsin your the best rapper I know because you can put out songs like what’s my purpose and dream forever. Its like for What’s my purpose. you thought about real shit. That song is how I feel everyday about people. Man thats why i like you so much and I hope Knock Madness isn’t your last album

  279. Steven May 7, 2014 at 9:19 am #

    Hey hopsin i got one question. Do you believe in what you rap and you guys can help me with this question refer me to a song that proves he does.

    • Amy May 21, 2014 at 4:40 pm #

      way too broad a question, man. narrow it down. pertaining to which belief? I would say he speaks with a conviction that leaves little room for doubt. You want one song? Please. Have you even listened to his music? You should be able to hear it for yourself, and if you can’t you’re probably just out of your depth. Nobody can help you with that.

  280. Brady May 7, 2014 at 7:21 pm #

    Hop i gotta tell you that you are a saviour to me in my life right now on the fact that all of my “friends” has gotten the mindset that doing drugs and drinking is the only thing still fun to do on a weekend but i promised always to myself that i wouldnt get into any of that mess because of my mom being an alcoholic i realized quick how that affects not just that person but everyone around them and i had no positive influence pointing me in a direction worth following until i heard your music and it gave me confidence that there is someone else out there just like me and it saves me everyday. I really needed to tell you this that you are changing a life and i owe you a great thank you. Keep making music man it speaks to me and it really truly is saving my life.

  281. G'day... May 8, 2014 at 12:29 pm #

    I really just needed to thank Marcus for “What’s my purpose?” I felt like he read my mind with those lyrics, amazingly done. Keep up the fantastic work hopsin, your music has touched my life, and for that I am grateful.

  284. Amy May 21, 2014 at 4:32 pm #

    Dear friend Hopsin, I love you. You wanted to touch my heart; but you grabbed it instead. I loved you from the very first time I heard Ill Mind 5, almost from the very first words. You killed it. You hit the proverbial nail with the sound of a railroad spike being driven home. Took my breath away. Hooked me like a drug. That song lives and breathes with a single, determined focus, as sinuous and focused as a hungry python broken free from confinement. With flow as smooth and as cool as silken reptile skin. Continuous, unbroken. One solid mass of potent muscle and driven intent. And God, when you let the pain out. . How do you do it, Hop? Break down with such utter strength and dignity that you never leave holes in your defense? Sometimes, you sound frustrated. I get it, I’m frustrated too. Life is frustrating. People are frustrating. Sometimes you do have to take a step back and remember that you can’t make the horse drink the water, cuz the horse just ain’t as smart as you. It doesn’t even know it’s fucking thirsty. It’s easy to get caught up trying. Oh well. It’s not your job to make them drink it, just to bring it; and you do. Not every thirsty horse can be saved. If you’re like me, you feel alone, even when surrounded by people. You are not alone. You are just one of few. The independent thinkers, the potent minds, the real and true Leaders of humanity, will always be few amongst many; and in their lives, they will often feel alone. Sometimes it gets heavy to carry the cane; but it’s better to have a cane to lean on, when you are tired, than to be the sheep who tires running, and is taken by the wolf. You have poured your soul into your music. It is an intoxicating brew. I plan to keep drinking. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself, so shamelessly. God, how I wish I could say what you say, the way you say it. You’re incredibly gifted. You are delivering messages as potent as any I have heard. World changing, life changing. Your voice penetrates the deepest places like the peal of church bells through the sleeping city streets. You have a presence that can’t be denied or ignored. The dark will scatter from you like roaches from light. God will always take care of you, for you are doing Gods work. I, at least, believe that’s true. Keep doing God’s work until he calls you home. The wretched lift up their eyes and are shaken by the bareness of your soul and its afflictions. The sorest wounds heal best when they’re exposed to the air; thank you for preaching that difficult lesson. And when the song is done. . we’re left to ponder the shadows you so briefly, yet so powerfully, banished; like a lighthouse beam through fog. Somehow, the shroud is more heavy than it was before; more uncomfortable to put back on. So some choose to cast it off and follow the light. Hope is distant, but we can see it now. . Bless you Hopsin, even more than you’ve already been blessed. Bless you in all your days, and the Lord guide you, in all your ways. Bless you for so bravely treading where the lost sheep roam. I only ache that we both exist, right here on this same crust of Earth, stretching between your feet and mine, and that we yet shall never meet, hand to hand, mind to mind, soul to soul. For that would be an honor, a true honor. If we both make it to heaven, Hop, and I have an eternity to search you out, I will find you then, just to shake your hand. Life is too short, distance is too far, humanity, too broken, to afford to hide our souls. So I love you, Hop. I really do. I just might take a bullet, for you. Not in a weird way though, so peace; if we both make it to Heaven, then, I’ll catch you when deceased. Sincerely, AmyD

    Hopsin your image is immaculate beautiful and your existence is appreciated. Poetic summarizing isn’t always appreciated or beautiful. I believe in truth. I have faith in humanity still probably the last person to be making an assumption off of a contradiction haha. You make the USA a country in which violates the very basic laws of humanity, worth fighting for with music and art. Believe it or not I believe you to be a new age shaman a healer a leader. I deadicate my life to individualism expressed thru creation and I’m your allie , warrior, a fellow truth seeker. I believe.

    Hop, you are really inspiration. I know you probably won’t see this but you, starting from a kid in Special Ed classes becoming a world famous rapper, is so inspiring to people like me in a small town with little to no chance of making it and becoming famous. If I ever become famous I’ll make sure I mention your name as one of my role models.

    Hey Marcus what do you think of Chris Webby? I always love listening to your opinion on life and rappers always gives me a laugh or some real insight on things that no one usually wants to talk about. Anyway, just was curious cause i think he’s pretty deadly. Keep it up man, later.

  293. John Mix May 31, 2014 at 6:49 pm #

Thanks JMIX

  295. AmyD June 3, 2014 at 6:20 am #

    Ok Marcus, I’ve evaluated more of your music and I have to admit I was disappointed. See, you got it twisted. Marcus is the real rap artist, not Hop. Hop is an idea of yours that you’ve embraced too hard. See, you wanted to be the best rapper. But in order for you to BE the best rapper. . you have to also be YOU. Also, you seem to have really believed in your heart that being the best rapper meant getting approval from the masses. So you pitted yourself against unworthy opponents and that in itself is unworthy. And why do you want the approval of people who approve of those who are unworthy? They’re clearly not worth impressing. Also, I have a lot of trouble with the statement, “I have no favorite rappers because all of you suck.” Do you really believe that? I have to believe you don’t. You’re too smart to deny some of the other skillful artists out there in your field of work. I know so many good ones. Some might be better than you. Some are in some ways, for sure. If you want their names get back to me and we’ll discuss it because if you somehow haven’t heard of these guys, you really need to. You’ve got mad skill, Marcus. That fact is undeniable. I’m not just saying that. You jumped immediately to a spot near the top of an extensive mental list I’ve compiled and some of those guys had to really prove themselves to get up there. I heard ONE of your songs and I knew you made top three before the song even finished. It blew me away. It stunned me. I don’t know if that’s ever happened before. But then I heard more. You talk about the devil a lot like it’s no big thing. But I hope you realize that if you challenge the devil he’ll send an army. No one man can stand up to an army forever so be careful and arm yourself with prayer and faith and try some modesty. You spend a lot of time insulting women and indulging in violent fantasies. I think you must know that Jesus wouldn’t approve of that kind of behavior. So there are some definite chinks in your armor, Marcus. Even I can see them and I guarantee that the devil has got a bead on you. I’ve heard it in your music. You’ve been touched by a sickness that’s bigger than you, bigger than anybody. There aren’t a lot of people like you, Marcus; so the devil’s going to want you as his trophy. My own personal theory is that you had to disguise yourself as part of the darkness in order to purge it. I just hope I’m not wrong. It might simply be that God used you, despite you. I don’t believe that. However, after listening to much of your work, I would say that the majority of it is intolerable. I’m not saying it’s not skillful. I almost don’t want to admit that even the vulgar and intolerable were still undeniably skillful but it really can’t be denied. The ones you got right, though. . were impeccable. Amazing. The delivery. The word use. The flow, the rhythm. Everything, start to end. Truly an amazing accomplishment. Your whole career was worth those few songs, believe me. I mean, they’re still reaching, Marcus. The ripple is still spreading outward and it’s going to keep spreading, even through the generations; probably even after your death. Most people never get to throw a stone that large. You threw at least five. So if it’s killing you, go ahead and quit the rap career. Start nourishing your soul. The only place happiness exists is in the soul; it can’t be found a single place else. Take up meditation, or martial arts. Personally I think you’d be a kick ass martial artists. You’ve got the energy and aggression to fuel it. You’d look bad ass doing it, too. Find a woman you can marry. Believe me, they’re out there. Actually, it’s not up to you to find her. If God sees that you’re worthy of her, he’ll send her your way. So do whatever you can to make yourself worthy. You talk about some issues in Heather Nicole; have you worked on that shit yet? Angels are delicate creatures, Hop. God won’t give one to just anybody. And then have some kids, for sure, because that brainy shit is genetic and we need more thinkers like you. Not only that but having kids is profound and life changing. Listen, I worry for you. That’s why I’m taking the time to write this. How strange is that shit? I know it’s strange, but hey, it’s the way God made me. I care about people. It’s like my own special purpose on this planet. And here’s the thing. I’ve got a whole list of musicians and groups that I love passionately. I know, I already mentioned that. The point is, I’ve never reached out to a single one of them and here’s why; I listen to their music, and it’s clear they’re doing fine. They’re doing great, in fact. Life is good. Their careers are good. They feel strong, optimistic, positive, powerful. Sometimes they get down on their luck, sure; they’re human. We all do. But even in their weakness they come strong, and so at the end of the day, I don’t worry for them. They’re not lost, and they don’t seem in danger of becoming lost. In fact they lift me, and strengthen me, through their music. It’s a beautiful thing. I started caring about you, Marcus, Hopsin, whatever you want to go by. I got lucky and heard your good stuff first. Some of that other shit would have made me write you off, completely, if it was the first I ever heard by you. But I heard the good stuff and I got hooked. So now, I just want to talk to you, Hopsin/Marcus. I want to tell you that you’ve screwed with my head a bit. I guess it’ll make me feel better if I do whatever I can to reach out to you, one human being to another. Not fan to artist, just person to person. That’s what I do. I wish I could do it in song, like you. I’ll take what I can get, though. Maybe you’ll never read this. I think it’s a distinct possibility that you don’t read through this shit and I can’t say I’d blame you. Still, though. To think I could put my opinion out there, and get it in YOUR head. Well, the thought makes me feel better and what the hell; what do I have to lose? Tell you what, though. If you are reading this, consider writing back. No strings attached. You like friends? I do too. You like talking to other human beings who actually have honest and interesting shit to say? I know I like that. I also know how hard it is to find, believe me. I’ve got some lyrics, too, and you can read them if you want. Also with no strings attached. So that’s the invitation extended. It’s all I can do. If not, then just take care, Marcus. I don’t pray like I used to but I’ll say one for you when I’m done writing this. I am honestly pulling for you. And I plan to keep introducing others to your work. The good stuff, at least. Ok Marcus/Hopsin. Peace for now. Sincerely, again, AmyD.

    Hey Hopsin,

    I only just discovered your stuff a month ago and to be honest I have not listened to rap/hip hop much since I was a teenager. I felt it was lost along time ago and then I heard your song Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 and was thrown back by what I was hearing in the song. I heard some straight out stuff a Rapper who could rap and be positive in his lyrics without sounding preachy. I have missed the days where Rappers talk about the real world and using good thought provoking lyrics. I got tired of hearing about bitches, money and fancy fucking cars. I didn’t care I couldn’t get into it. I found some other songs on Youtube and fucking played them over and over and its been along time since I had done that. The last time I did was when I picked up 2pac’s Me Against the World, Nas’s Illmatic and Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers Lp and not forgetting The Tunnel Ratz Tunnel Vision Record. I am glad to place you high on the list of artist I like and look forward to hearing more track from you. You have shown me that HipHop is far from dead its just hiding in the shadows.

  311. Travis July 16, 2014 at 6:11 pm #

    Hopsin, come to Syracuse NY please!! I want to see you so bad but all of your performances are so far away. :(

  312. Rhashad Jonas July 17, 2014 at 7:52 am #

    For some reason, Hopsin reminds me of Eminem back in the 90s. #greatmusicbro

  315. Peter Parker July 24, 2014 at 1:11 am #

    oh and all this people asking to come to their city r assholes, if u guys r truly fans ud drive or fly there… ima try to drive to ur show in ohio from pa

    To whom it may or may not concern….. Whoever reads these post or can get in touch with hopsin or who knows him personally should take the time to care about his soul his heart and his eternity.. Someone if your a friend at all to him not concerned with your paycheck or backlash or what people think need to take note. Hopsin I’m praying that this post will somehow come across your desk or your basement lab or wherever you are these days. Your music is awesome and you seem like you internalize and think about what you believe and say… It makes me sad about ill mind 7 and how you feel but at the same time I understand because I have had those same talks with God same thoughts. It says even by creation alone Everyman will know there is a God. You pretty much quote that in your song. God wants you to search and when you say he isn’t talking to you like Adam and Eve well maybe he is just not in a voice you hear. We all need a burning bush moment like Moses had but maybe you have had one and don’t take the time to realize or believe that is what it is. You want truth and that is all anyone wants… We as humans are all sinners born that way. You will never be perfect and always be convicted of sin in our life. If God just said ok here you go then it would be to easy and your heart wouldn’t want it. There is nothing you can do to be closer to God to love God more to love God less. He gives us the grace and where we fall so short God fills in the gap. It’s by grace we have been saved!! Ephesians 2:8. If you want the truth it is there. There is a guy named Matt chandler who is in Dallas tx who preaches at the village church. They even have an app you can put on your phone and listen to. PLEASE check it out. He preaches from the bible not some opinion of his but from the bible the truth will set you free. Like I said I still have the same thoughts and struggles but know beyond a shadow of a doubt God is real even when my mind and gut say it’s not because of grace givin by God to me and allowing my heart to believe….and heaven isn’t in your mind…. Maybe someday you will read this or someone on here will have the balls to show you this post. Google Matt chandler village church….. People also have put him on YouTube…. Being a Christian isn’t easy and it’s says in the bible we as Christian will suffer as Christ has suffered.. Sorry for all the hypocrites in this world…. But when it comes down to it we are all hypocrites because we are a sinners.

    Thank you Hopsin for being one of the small group of rappers that don’t smoke or do drugs or drink irresponsibly and pointing out the bad things everyone does on a daily basis. I can always relate to your songs. New Fan for live. THNX for the inspiration ~Gustavo

  324. Bishop AKA HOMICIDE August 1, 2014 at 1:37 pm #

    I have got to say Hopsin has become my favorite since Ill Mind 5 I grew bigger in rap at school because of him. It was always a dream of mine to rap but my vocal chords were damaged due to multiple surgeries performed to take away my papilloma. I’m from Baltimore and I ghostwrite. Thanks Hopsin for inspiring me to do what I do best.

    Let me break ya life down in syllables/
    Kids like you need lectures and a quotable/
    To understand and notice/
    What my flow can do/
    Can’t stop the motion dude/
    Homi kills instrumentals/
    And Cide/
    Puts cyanide/
    In every line/
    And rhyme/
    Destroys a DJ’s turntables with this lyrical nine/
    And erase a emcee’s time/
    After shit like this comes out of nowhere and blows his mind

    I showed you what happens when you fuck with Homicide/
    Now I’m bout to bring out Myers-9/
    You have any last words cause at this point it’s best that you admire time/
    Your deception/
    Is a reflection/
    To this transportation/
    Of words that hop around on paper/
    Your heart turns to a dry raisin/
    Pulses take a vacation/
    Your voice died for all of twelve minutes but it felt like a longer duration/
    Realizing this evaluation/
    Is not a conversation/
    It’s more like a comprehension/
    Of “this is no longer an integration”/
    And your obituary created proof of a separation/
    Your casket added more to the devastation/
    With the words you portray you have no revelation/
    You just received your invitation/
    To be considered of the greats an’/
    You have yet to prove that you have better balance with them/
    My thoughts they’re accidents/
    Accidents cause traffic jams/
    And if there’s a traffic jam that means there’s writer’s block/
    Causing you to stop/
    And do the opposite of London and flop/
    You on a tree thinking bout bein the top/
    I’m smashin pie so what are you/
    I’m eating what good are you I hit you with that K and ask you what that red do/
    Get it dude/
    I just spelled out a blood set and asked you a “you better know the answer to this question” at the same time/
    You better answer quick and don’t choke or you’ll get shot

    You brag as if Lyrikal Genocide is your specialty/
    You should never want to step to me/
    Im Dwayne Wade takin yo ass out you can’t touch this Heat/
    Basically you don’t have the mind capacity/
    This verse/
    Will put your flows in the dirt/
    And have ya brain/
    On alcohol to sulk in pain/
    Them words that you speak highly of they’ll be at a funeral on their way to a hearse/
    Clipped wings incase you think you have a chance to rehearse/
    Im Bruce Wayne/
    Mixed with Max Payne/
    The Lyrikal content/
    Disrupts your conscience/
    And accomplishments/
    Now I’m your consequence/

    My raps are lame yours are pitiful/
    I expose the truth you know something you could never do/
    My flow’s impeccable/
    You wouldnt wanna step into/
    The rebellious sickening breaking down of words just call me Arsonal/
    Words rip you to particles/
    Rhythm kicks in and brings out the shitty art in you/
    My mother and dad would say “Ar-Son-Always shines brighter then white man do/
    Get it Are Sun Always Shine Brighter see what I have to do/
    To show you that the Race-Is-Him/
    Not to be a racist or a supporter of racism/
    But you can never touch my style it’s untouchable

    Lyrical surgeon/
    Mixing words with/
    Complex curves/
    And shit/
    These lascerations/
    Cause acts of patience/
    When the ho spit all the confidence/
    Out ya brain and place/
    It in a safe/
    You’ll be waitin for the day/
    That your raps’ll make sense and you can actually spray someone with a K/
    I’m saving the day/
    By takin away this minimum wage/
    And yes the game need change/
    Cause Drake aint said shit Lamar K/
    I’m starving ready to eat prey/
    You starving you hungry can’t even get a plate/
    You pleadin/
    And screamin/
    And thinkin maybe you’ll meet Dre/
    I’m scheming/
    And piecing/
    Your funeral together so you won’t get any pay/
    Get it scheming and piecing any pay/
    Anyway dawg why don’t you just pay close attention and watch how my heat wave/
    Deceitful images/
    Peep the synonym/
    I keep on sendin/
    Emies to weep and collect phlegm/
    You weak as m&ms/
    Why you think my girl left she doesn’t fuck wit the feminine/

    These are some raps that I wrote

  325. Makala August 3, 2014 at 11:29 pm #

    Dear Marcus,
    My name is Makala Aka Mizzy. I am a female undiscovered rap artist(15 years old) and inside me I have a “Hopsin” That feels the way you do. I write my own raps, to inspire kids around my age to path they need to go to succeed unlucky most rappers who influence drungs, twerking and alcohol.. I agree a lot with what you say in your songs, and I am glad I found a rapper to relate to, you’re the realest. Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 and 7 speak the most to me for different reasons. It would be an honor to talk to you even though the chances of you reading this comment are 1:100 but if you do please hit me up at, that would be great! Thanks! Much Love.(:

  333. Kenny August 15, 2014 at 4:39 pm #

    Hey man your Ill Mind of Hopsin 7 was really good and i loved the beat with it. It was a perfect choice in my mind. To be honest we need rappers more like you. People who aren’t just flaunting the money they have but someone who is real and true to their words. Every word that comes out of your mouth i can relate to somehow and I understand it all. With other rappers sometimes they just talk nonsense. Hey man Good luck in your career and i wish you the best.

    Where can I buy your albums that you actually get the money for the sell? I appreciate that you post your music on YouTube for free, but you are amazingly talented and deserve to get paid for your music. I don’t want to buy from the wrong place and give my money to someone else. I only recently came across your music and it’s the best I’ve heard. Ill mind of hopsin 7 touched me in a way no music ever has, and I want to support you so you can keep putting out music if you chose to. I don’t expect a personal reply from Hop himself, but if someone will let me know where I can buy his albums that he will get the profits for, I would appreciate it. Thanks. And Hop, if you read this, thanks for being unafraid to be real.

I don’t have internet or a computer, just my phone, and I’m having a hard time navigating the website, but I found it now. Thanks. And Hopsin, I know you have to be you and do what you are comfortable with, but just know, when/if you put out more music, you have a lot of people who are hungry to hear real music like yours. Keep it up man.

    Hearing your last song quite literally broke my heart. Trying to convey to you thoughts as deep as I would like is quite impossible to do in a text, particularly one you are unlikely to read to begin with. That said, I cannot help but reach out to you. I don’t know how well versed you are in the Bible, other that your saying that you believe it was all written by men. But…ALL of the concerns you have expressed are addressed in the New Testament. But honestly, that is just a guide, real communication with God comes from within. If you are expecting the Holy Ghost to make Himself known to you in some “mystical” way, you are asking for disappointment. Jesus said that demanding for a sign would mean NOT getting one. The signs he gives us come on HIS terms, not ours.
    Yes, we do have creative, analytical minds, because we were created in HIS image. There is nothing wrong with uses those gifts either. However, whenever you begin to get closer to the truth, THAT is when the father of lies steps in, and THAT is when those questions begin to plague you most.
    Think about it, is it not funny how your drive to question your faith became so strong precisely when your popularity grew, when your impact on the lives of others grew? God loves us all, but Satan only bothers with those that could be a threat to him in some way.

    I would love to talk more to you about this, so feel free to respond if you choose.
    I’ll keep you in my prayers.

      ion like when mfs try to put ppl down about asking a fave rapper of their’s to listen to their music. I see it as someone looking for some advice, good criticism , and ways to get better at rapping. if ppl think that others are riding a rappers coat tail cuz they tryna get famous, thts the wrong idea. ppl go through shit and fall back on a skill they have and then when opportunity presents itself, they as a rppaer they like to listen to their music. its a good step toward becoming a good rapper because even the greatest have gone through that stage. but……………… fuck the bull shit. I need a person to collab with cuz I know its a lot of yall who got different rap styles. so lets get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Stick by your team through thick and thin, despite the wins and losses.
    Alabama will try to rebound from their loss to the Sooners and rank fourth in the Sporting News college football preseason rankings.
    So besides the fact that both sports are being played with

    Hello. I’m a junior in college, studying physics and chemistry dual degree. I’ve been a fan since the day before I went to college and I was at a friend’s partying the night before I left for school. Since then I’ve been impressed with how you’ve built this empire. At first I liked swizzz even though some people say his voice is unbearable, then I disliked Dizzy at first because he’s a pothead but then I think Jarren’s rhymes initially just thoroughly impressed me. I really didn’t have any idea where hip hop and rap was headed especially after Eminem started going mainstream. Then I found out exactly where it was going. I intend to change the world and make it a better place even if it’s one little thing at a time; I happily have looked forward to how you have changed other’s lives one at a time. We are about the same age and it’s nice to see people going out of their way to change things, it’s motivation to continue to work towards being able to make a change. Thank you, I appreciate everything that you have and will hopefully continue to do, the same goes for the other members of FV and the future ones as well. You could probably do with putting a book out; Fact vs. Fiction: Truth of Hopsin. Just some of the things you dealt with growing up and everything that brought you to where you are now, I happen to be a bit interested.

    I’m sorry you have such shallow fans thinking that you’ll feel for them and promote their music on this page; trying to take the easy way to the top, thinking that if they talk like “rappers” than they’ll be like you, when in reality you speak coherently and not like a thug. I’m about to graduate college, and I’m in some scientific (engineering) leadership positions, so I can relate to some of your ideas in your music with respect to hard work. I hope this comment is that small relief in a sea of bullshit, because all I want to say is that your music is refreshing. You change your views constantly, like making ill mind 5 and then making a video with another artist’s response to it and angles on how you were wrong to assume things. Like your whole religion ordeal, and like basically every other view you’ve spread. It’s just human, and it’s organic. When you move to Australia, I won’t be sad that you’re “gone,” because I don’t want your music to be a response to fans that only like the music and not the man behind it. Keep being weird as fuck, and silly, and aggressive, and a skater. No man has just one emotion. Maybe one day ill meet you and shake your hand. Good luck in life.

    To Marcus Hopson,

    Just finished watching Ill Mind Of Hopsin 7.
    I tweeted you from an account I have, not sure if you’ll see it but if you’re sincerely searching for God, and He wants you to receive this message, you will, either from me or someone else. In fact I guarantee that you will get this message, God has promised that everyone gets the truth with the falsehood to see if they can/will pick the right one. Only those who sincerely believe will be able to understand.

    The answers I have do not come from me, or from a man but directly from God. It’s a bold claim but I stand by and and am willing to prove it without any nonsense. Besides you’re a smart man, you’d pick out the BS right away.

    God has always been showing us signs, it’s us who turn away from it. Will you turn away from this message?
    You can if you want to, I’m just putting this offer out there.
    God willing you will seek out the truth.

    God bless.

    -Submitter To God.

    I know your probably not gonna see this but honestly i dont care Hopsin you are an inspiration to me i am currently in Belle plaine, MN where young rappers with heart dont get recognized and im also a special ed student enrolled in the jordan MN alc. Your music speaks to me in a way i cant describe you speak the troubles i go threw everyday if thats getting mistreated and how hard it is to be in special ed and not getting recognized to my true talent and dedication to my music you talk about these fake rappers like lil wayne and drake and to me they ruined hip hop for everyone who wants to be a rapper and make money for something they truly love I just want to thank you and I hope one day my dream comes true by working at funk volume (the greatest industry ever made) if you ever could email me at or call me at 6123853296 thank you if you read this and tell swizzz dizzy and benton there the SHIT!!!

    You may think that you will end up saving money, but accounting for the time that you dedicate to the
    task in the form of your hourly wage or salary usually ends up far exceeding the cost of a contractor; it is stressful
    for amateurs; and you will end up paying a whole lot more when you
    need to replace pieces broken by you or you need a professional remodeling contractor to do something you realize you cannot.
    This is due, in part, to the fact that appliances and fixtures are continually being modernized.
    If something is done incorrectly by a non-professional,
    you are left to foot the bill.

    Hopsin i hope you read this man, i listened to your Hop Madness album, or at least a few of the songs because i hadnt gotten the chance to hear all of it but this is the first time ive ever commented on any rappers page or anything. I came to tell you that if you feel alone in this world, youre not. I know that feeling all too well and you are one of the few artist that really speak to me lyrically. The system is corrupted and i get tired of everyone telling me to look to god for help. Ive looked to god for 18 years and shit happens. Then im told to be patient and things will change. Its all bullshit. but the funny thing is, i believe in god. Just not the way people say im supposed to, people rely on him to do everything and give their lives to him and just sit back and expect shit to happen. I say get out and grind and do shit for yourself and look to him to help. People and religion nowadays are like giving them a gun but them not shooting it. Its hard being a black sheep in society because we are the ones who make sense but the majority who go with the flow call our thoughts nonsense and continue to conform to this capitalistic white supremacist world. Why should i follow the rules of another human being no better than me, who obviously hadnt done a good job of keeping up with things? Continuous treading the black race with constant promotion of nonsense, false beacons of hope, and the vision to make us “uncle tom niggas” or wild monkeys, but never to be our own selves. White collar schemes running rampant to keep the rich man rich and the poor man poor, drowning out the good man’s voice with a muzzle of nonsense and cash. Selling the woman out to be an object rather than the beautiful beings they are. Adopting what is not humanity as the social norm. but then has the nerve to use gods name for justification by putting him in the dollar bill and creed of this fucked up country. Youre not crazy Marcus, you know whats going on and people are trying to take that from you. the try to take it from all of us, and have succeeded for the most part. As someone who you dont know at all and vice versa. i want to say i feel you, and much love. Meaning i love you, as an artist, a human, and Marcus. Its glad to know there is more people that think like me

    Hop honestly your music is dope and the message of it, your personality, and lifestyle is one of the best in hip hop. I just feel that if you talk about your emotions so much and humans having so many of them why don’t you make an album or a couple songs purely about the different emotions humans go through. It would help people find wisdom in how to deal with these emotions and (not saying this is a way to get fans but if someone looking for help with problems and they google an emotion and your shit pops up, that wouldn’t be a bad thing) find out what is truly bothering them by figuring out how to forward themselves after dealing with these emotions. I find you as a truly inspirational person and i have definitely found a more positive aspect about bad things that happened throughout my life through your music and listening to a story that i can relate to and find out how to keep positive through it all.

    I was just watching some interviews and noticed you mention “human emotion” a lot so i thought it would be a different idea that could be dope and send a positive vibe.

  378. WoodStak December 2, 2014 at 4:27 am #

    Yo Hop, they say you are what you eat. Everyday for breakfast you must have a big bowl of sick cunt! You’re off the fuckin chain! I’ve just discovered your music and am hyped as fuck over it, hurry up and come rock some more shows in Melbourne, maybe with Axe Murder Boyz opening. Much love!

    Hopsin man my name is Tyren man ik u I guess u can say I’m like u man I really never had a good childhood likely completely fucked up bro like I discovered u random the song Chris dolmeth at first I thought I was a person but it was about a drug and the story abput ur friend man like I listen to that while I mowing my brothers lawn man that shit was amazing the message and all that like it hit me that rap is what u make it like life man u music could stop war in nations like nocturnal rainbows I understood what u were talking about how can believe in something u can’t see and I just internalized that for months at a time and it means u have to have faith like that shit was deep but now on Knock Madness u had a few deep songs like what happen man theres very few rappers I fuck with like if u don’t have a story that gonna change my life for the good ur not in my fone yeah I’ve smoked weed to numb my pain I remember breaking up wit my girl and it killed me. Marcus I listened to dream forever and cried at my boys home I live in on my bunk I wanted to die becuz I knew I could have her but then I listen to ill mind of hopsin 5 and it made me think I was like that shit makes sense I’m not gonna be a sterotype but it looks like ur turning into a steroyupe hopsin I’m 18 years living in south Carolina in a boys home man I’m wit my girl again and trying to make it work even though we live so far away man I don’t have a job or my license and I’m still in highschool but I try to keep my head up I rap from time to time trying to change others life instead of trying to be a thug like I used to be man please just comeback like raw 2.0 bro go harder and deeper into this rap game change it save it please becuz the world is dying cuz they don’t have a message u provide u said ” the fiends are knocking at your door.” Give the fiends what they need not what they want . do right and come back man please we need u Hop I been following u since that’s so Raven man u are meant for the light not the darkness u buried ur old self on knock madness I understood that but u need to revive ur original urself man I don’t give a fuck about no other rapper becuz the speech isnt shit except sex drugs and money they give a fuck about what will benefit them but u care for our masses. U got so many rappers rapping bout the same shit man ur voice ur energy ur joy is different I jone on slot of sons on other rappers but never ur I try to rap to ur beats but I’m not a lyricists like u MSN just bring ur old self back man.

Funk volume won’t be the same.. but I’m sure the crew is gonna hold it down for sure.. I been your fan since as far back I could remember, ill mind 4.. had me hooked and inspired since day one.. your ill mind 7 set off a whole new light on the world.. I wish you the best of luck.. do what you need to..

  398. Ben January 31, 2015 at 11:26 am #

    Hopsin, the answers you seek are those that have been sought by peoples for eons. Attaining the wisdom you desire takes one kernel of understanding the universe at a time. Study the puzzle pieces before you fit them all together into the big picture. Start with truly understanding what Ghandi meant when he said that the means to an end is what really defines the end. The process by which a creation comes into being by its creator is the true wonder as compared to the creation itself. Should a rapper be valued by how he writes music and his ability or the music he has already made? If you want more answers read about fractal design. (There’s a great NOVA video about the subject on YouTube). I hope you can find at least something you’re searching for with that knowledge.

  401. Corey February 4, 2015 at 7:09 pm #

    Don’t know if you read this stuff, but I just listened to the song “Killin my soul” you made with Jarren Benton and after your stunt saying you were going to leave rap, I can’t help but relate that with this song.

    Man I go through this shit in the mind all the time, same shit different pile. You’re killing your own soul by ignoring your heart. It’s as simple as that.

    If you want to talk, email me. Egos and minds aside.

    You’d be surprised how much more you’d be able to rap about with what you feel, and not what you think.

    I fell in love with hiphop the day i was born, im a girl who lives in lebanon a fucking arab middle east hell where hiphop is not treasured or respected.
    Hopsin you fucking get all of my dark sides, you inspired me to get things running in this country
    if you have any advice you can give me, on how to start email me
    i could use the push, your songs gave me
    much love, a sister from a different fucked up country, but in the same fucked up world

  404. Asher February 14, 2015 at 8:37 am #

    Hey homie, just wanted to send my respect and a perspective regarding your outlooks.

    I just watched an interview where you talk about direction and a fork in the road between following your conscious or you God-given way to life.
    feel that question deeply man, i think the music industry is well down a road of indoctrination into bad habits. And as someone with my own perspective to share I have also questioned whether i’d change my morals to succeed. But then you’ve gotta question the meaning of success you feel me?

    I mainly wanted to make the point that the two options you tossed up between are but the same thing. Its your god given right as Marcus or Hopsin to listen to what your head tells you, and if your head is lost for thought, then to go with your first instinct. Gut feeling is the strongest and most truthful.

    You were 28 in the interview i saw on Hardknock TV and I understood all the points you made regarding the sinister style change being the only claim to fame. You have your head in the right place man, and I can see you have morals, But the real heads want the concious flow, a bigger audience may mean more money, but money is nothing on a death bed and a group of fans that love evil arent going to learn from your knowledge.

    To finish this fuckin thesis I’ll leave it with this, you dont lack skill, or knowledge, or spirit. and if its direction you lack, just know only you can guide you, we all die alone, and a billion radio sluts mean nothing to a lesser number of people you can potentially, and already have enlightened. Look at all these fans dude! Do what you do best, and I look forward to seeing where you go from here.
    Peace homie!

    Well, looks like you are getting plenty of head from everyone else so I’m not going to jump into the active circle jerk. Here is what I think, I can’t rap, won’t rap, and have never rapped. Yet I somehow know that a mediocre novice has more bang for the buck then you. You annoy me. I hate buying your songs, and even worse, I hate purchasing your bullshit ideas. You’re like that arrogant Californian thinking you can just up and diversify. The world needs straighter lines, not idiots deviating from accepted “American” norms. You are the reason why “thugs” is still a thing in 2015, why people still desire to sag there pants, even when it does little to no good for them, why kids think they can just drop out and somehow have success given to them, basically you’re the parasitical amoeba which doctors just found has all the resistance against the most refined antibiotics; it looks like your bullshit is going to keep coming until it consumes the life of your listeners. You’re about as original as Jordans, you literally have thousands waiting for your next bullshit product that does nothing for the consumer besides put to waste a potential that could have been placed in a better investment. You’re the reason conservatives hate minorities, it has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with your lyrics that only serve to validate their oh so rational judgements. You create logic to their though where the world thought it had none. Thank you, for wasting my fucking day. Other than that, your shit is great. LOL> this whole fucking rant was sarcastic, but either way Ima buy your next album, and fuck you!

If you wanna spread your wise words over the world, you should visit the world, it aint gonna come to you. Keep doing what you´re doing dude, one day you win the war against these nonsense rappers.

    wheni heard of Hopsin i thot ok i’ll listen thn when i did i was like… wtF he AMAZEBALLS plus really cute lol he needs to keep up wit tha great rap he has REAL talent wit Tech N9ne too they both MAZEBALLZ XD but i wont do the things like go ill and all tht shit but i would cry ir something if i met him he sounds cool yo XP
    hope he can realize tht he has talent and he should never give up rapping!!! GO HOPSIN AND TECH N9NE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XOXO

  410. Karli March 3, 2015 at 10:45 pm #

    Dear Marcus Hopsin,
    I’ve been trying to reach out to you for the past couple days… i don’t know if you were ignoring it, or “someone” was trying to make my voice heard by YOU. My name is Karli, it’s time for YOU to hear me roar. I’m only 18. But, before the voice inside ur head screams oh fuck that shes too young to know what shes talking about, PLEASE hear me out.

    I’ve been doing a shit ton of research on “The Illuminati” and all that other bullshit for a long time. since i was in like, 8th grade AT LEAST. I’ve always been ahead of my time, so to speak. No one ever believes im my age because I act a LOT more mature than most my age. It’s been that way as long as I remember.

    I’ve listened to you, and Tech N9ne, all them for a while. YEARS. I listened, but never really HEARD what you were saying. Recently, I went to a Chris Brown, Tyga, and Trey Songz concert. I was supposed to meet chris, but some shit went down and I was only able to get my picture taken with him, I had planned to ask him a few fuckin questions.

    For years, i was living a lie. False idols, especially that guy… I’m not tryna be a groupie, i just want someone to HEAR me. I feel we have the same ideas, but the illuminati, or whatever the fuck they go by, they been doin some weird shit to me, and i dont know why. im not a famous rapper, tbh i dont mean shit. but if ANYONE can help me, id really appreciate it. I’m to deep into this shit to quit, if i could go back i would change it. Your music speaks to me in ways I cant describe, all the things that you say, send me on a mental high. it’s like your speaking for the people who dont have a voice.. they were designed that way, and u know that they dont have a choice.. they believe we cant do shit, they wont do shit, and maybe thats the problem.. but if all of us give up on this shit, and just sit here and bitch HOW IN THE HELL WE GONNA SOLVE EM??

    I just wrote that shit dude i really cant rap like you but i mean, i guess i tried lol.. please talk to me… via email, twitter, instagram, facebook i dont fucking care but i truly FEEL IN MY HEART AND SOUL THAT YOU CAN HELP ME BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE. maybe im wrong, i usually am…but in my head i swear i feel your the only one who can understand.. please help me MARCUS. i need it.. NOW.

    snapchat- lakarlie2
    twitter & instagram- itskarlimannn
    facebook- Karli Esselman
    youtube- Karli Renee (i think)

    tbh, i only use technology because everyone else does. and to do GODS plan, that i know he has for me, sometimes i gotta do evil shit whether i like it or not. FUCK IT WE ALL GONNA DIE ANYWAYS, RIGHT?! HAHAHAHHAHA.

    Holy shit. I understand so much more of your music after reading some of the above thread. I don’t know if you actually read these, but I honestly couldn’t deal with all of these thirsty mother-fuckers who are trying to piggy-back off of your success. I was just here to check if you had an album coming out, but honestly take your time. I know you can’t rush art, otherwise you wind up putting out some shit that sounds like Wayne, and I would honestly hate to see that.

    Much respect,
    A loyal fan

      dude…he made a youtube video about how it was a joke…he even told everyone that he was releasing a new album, ‘Pound Syndrome’. Please do some research before asking directly. A simple google search would have told you.

    If this turkey a way to talk to hopsin sweet. Ok so most songs I listen to from u are awesome but then u have some songs that are like what we have on the radio… Which isn’t good.. U should right a New song to cuz I listened to all of your songs all ready.. And u shouldn’t get ride of your contacts cuz they look sick… And how come u dis on lol wayne.. Cuz gess what I listen to u and lil wayne Soo and honestly if lol wayne had better lyrics he would be awesome.. Oh and u should give swizz some tips for his own songs like to use better videos and try to Mabey go a little faster in some parts and don’t just rap about the first thing your mom tells u in the morning or what u see when u wake up or on side of road…..
    Oh and all you shouldn’t lie cuz it shows.. Like I know that hopsin is in California which I think is were holly wood is so u disin on as holly wood as u can be it don’t work…
    But I’m a fan and I’m getting u a lot more… My x told me to look up hopsin so I did and now I’m telling all my freinds bout u so cuz of me u have about 35 new fans from just 2weeks…..
    Oh and I got a sick design for a shirt promoting u I just gotta get some supplies to make it which may be a while…
    See I’m living in a tiny house with my mom dad grandparents and bro and I’m a teen sharing a room with a 7 year old bro oh and I’m a girl..
    And I have to go to cort well my mom dose for me and that dosent help with $ also my parents are in bankrupsie and my dad’s the only one that can work..
    Oh and they don’t like me listening to u but I do any wase…
    U should also have more concerts like one in tennesse cuz I really want to go to one…
    Oh and for one of your music videos u should like have something like u like aat a skate park cuz that would be awesome cuz every one likes skateboarding and Ya but… Idk ….. Oh and most likely I think this is just a scam for some one to het my email sooo.. But it’s worth a shot..

    Dear Hopsin,

    I assume you may not read this, as due to you being the coolest motherfucker to walk the earth. On the off chance you give this lowly nerd your time of day, I sincerly appreciate it Marcus.

    I am sure you get this quite alot but I feel the need to say it: I wouldn’t still be here on this planet if it wasn’t for you. I was going through a very rough time in my life and I thought it was only gonna get worse. I felt like no body truly understood how I felt deep down inside. I was surrounded by people, yet had never felt so alone. I had contemplated suicide multiple times but could never go through with it.

    One day, while on my laptop at school, I had forgot to take my Adderall that morning so I started talking to myself. I kept trying to tell myself I wasn’t crazy. Out of curiousity, I typed “I’m not Crazy” into Google. A lot of results were just pointless Yahoo Answer questions that did nothing for me. However, at the very bottom of the page was a Youtube Link that said “Hopsin – I’m Not Crazy”.

    It was fast, it was crazy, and I loved every second. I became hooked. I started looking up other peices by you, prowling the internet trying to listen to every song I could. With each song I listened to, two things happened: I had finally heard someone put exactly how I’ve felt then and for years into words…
    The other thing was I started to cry.

    I tried to hold it back, man, but I couldn’t. To hear my thoughts, my ideas, my fears, my pain put into song… to hear them acknowledged… It… Fuck, I can’t even explain it man…

    It gave me hope. It made me realize “Things are shit right now, but somewhere in this fucked-up planet, someone gets me; someone feels the same way.”

    Marcus, or Hopsin (whichever you prefer), Your music has helped alot of your fans heal. But You have done more than that for me. You may have touched the lives of millions, but just know that you saved one too. I had nowhere to go to, no one to turn to, nothing to live for, ’till I found your music, Hop.

    Thank you for being the baddest motherfucka out there, and thank you for being a friend when I needed it most.

    You fucking rock, Hop.

    –Eternally Grateful and In your Debt,
    Eric “Orion” James Braun

    i expect for my comment to get overlooked, but i will still try nonetheless to reach out to you cause iam not just a fan, but iam an aspiring artist that is trying to get heard, and have been trying to get you to hear me for a long time, as you know this task is almost a near impossible one, given the fact of how many people that flood your page, but at any rate, im be forward with you, i would like to be your friend above anything else, even if you dont like my music, because its not for everyone, and i know have along way to go to fully learn my craft, but if you would be so kind enough to check me out on youtube, i would greatly appreciate it

    thank you for your time, much love and peace be unto you

    hahaha! I’ll Mind of Hopsin was fun to hear. But finding true faith is a struggle I assure you. If you would consider Bible Studies email me. We can do it on a weekly bases and if things does not add up for you then you have the free will to quit. Just contact me if your even a slight bit interested.

    Hello Hop. I started producing in 2000 and I would be honored if you spit on one of my tracks.. The only thing I would want in return is recognition. If you ok with that let me know and I will send it where you say to send it.
