With what all started as a Hopsin Instagram post, the divide between Damien Ritter and Funk Volume seems to have grown un-manageable as both Hopsin and Dizzy Wright have confirmed the end of FV.
It seems like just a few weeks ago we were counting down the best moments on Sway In The Morning from 2015 which included Hopsin, Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton putting a huge challenge out to any label that thought they could keep up with Funk Volume.
Taking to Facebook, Hopsin outlined the situation at hand by saying:
Funk volume is officially dead now thanks to the monster Damien Ritter. There is nobody else to blame at all. I have officially separated myself from everything and I am fully independent now. It’s very sad but idiots like dame wanna control too Much and now he end up destroying a great fuckin team. Having a crew like FV has been my vision since I was 14 years old and this man just destroyed it. Jarren, Dizzy, Swizzz, Dj Hoppa and I are all still on good terms. They will forever be my brothers and I support them in whatever they do. I will let u guys know the full story soon. You know ama keep it RAW for real. Ain’t no holdin back. Im so sorry to all the FV fans. There’s a brighter future though. #undercoverprodigy
Dizzy Wright took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the situation citing a broken foundation as the cause for the break up.
I’m not sure when everything got so bad on our end but I wanna apologize to the fans… I did everything in my power to keep Fv together but because the foundation is so broken we’ve decided to go our separate ways, sad to say but It all happen extremely fast. I’m just upset cause I know how much I believed in this legacy, but I can’t let this stop me from growing my fan base and having a big year. I can only hope the people that fuck wit Dizzy Wright always remember what I contributed to this label and hold me down for that in the end. So peace and happiness and may that funk volume love never die everything is just not meant to last forever. I’ll be on tour wit Logic starting Feb 4th for 2 months so if u catch me at a good time I’ll be happy to explain but this is all I got for social media…
Not much has been put into words from the likes of Jarren Benton, Swizzz and DJ Hoppa and the Funk Volume Twitter account has not made any mention of a split. But from the way things are starting to unfold all sings point to the definite end to an incredible label. We’ll keep you updated on any new news.
