These days, rappers settle their scores on social media.
Hopsin is no stranger to the Internet. But when he decided to tell the tale of the surprise disintegration of Funk Volume -- and take some blistering shots at Funk Volume boss Damien Ritter -- he did so the old fashion way.
Check out 'Ill Mind of Hopsin 8.'
Those are some undeniably strong bars from Hop, who goes in on Ritter as a "Jerry Heller" type figure.
In an interview with HipHopDX, Hop discussed the track.
"It feels great, great feeling," Hopsin said about releasing the track. "Been waiting to get it off my chest for two months now. I didn’t want to resort to that, but the way things are going with the whole Funk Volume situation, it’s kinda rubbing me the wrong way, so I had to be vocal about it. That’s since I was a child, that’s been my way of venting so I just had to do what I do best and be vocal."He also spoke about his new company, Undercover Prodigy, and getting back together with his former Funk Volume bros like Dizzy Wright.
"To be honest, it’s a better situation for me," Hopsin says. "I wish the other guys, I hope they come back to my side so we can work things out ‘cause I would love to create a whole new platform and us all rise together like we were doing, but Damien might get in the way of that."
