Hopsin

If ever there was a hip hop equivalent of the straightedge type of personality you might find pissed off at a metal show, it would be Hopsin. The 30-year-old rapper has been in the game since his album dropped in 2009, but it was a year later, when he began the “Ill Mind of Hopsin” series of diss tracks and personal musings, that people began to take him seriously as a unique voice in rap that wasn’t content with obeying the genre’s status quo. In the latest addition to his “Ill” saga, “Ill Mind of Hopsin 8,” the rapper sets his sights on a former business partner, tearing into the man and their now-defunct record label with great lyrical flow and technical finesse. Although the conscious nature of Hopsin’s messages can make the man come off as a little too high and mighty to some, there’s no doubt he can command a microphone like the best of them when he’s fired up.
