Funk Volume’s Hopsin may have retired, but he’s back and has no plans to quit anytime soon. Stopping by Sway in the Morning — without his white contacts — he opens up about his music, his alter ego + breaks down some lyrics.
And in case you haven’t heard, Hopsin’s “retirement” in Australia was a prank — a publicity stunt. He cleared the rumors and admitted he faked the funk just for fun. Plus, he opened up about being a multi-faceted artist — he edited one of his music videos!
There’s no excuse for success, Hopsin alludes. As a High School dropout, he proves that it doesn’t matter about your education level. If you want it bad enough — think outside the box, and you can make it too.
Hopsin’ message to the public. Pound Syndrom drops July 24th.
