Hopsin Explains His Trap Rap Mocking 'No Words' Video

By HHL Editors

Hopsin had everybody talking last week with the blistering diss track 'Ill Mind Of Hopsin 8,' in which he goes way in on Funk Volume CEO Damien Ritter.

It wasn't the first time a one-off project from Hop came out of nowhere and briefly set the Internet ablaze.

Back in October, Hopsin's trap rap mocking 'No Words' video had the Web cracking up and wondering whom Hop was coming for.

In an interview with HipHopDx, Hop discussed his motivation behind the track.

"It was just fun," he said. "Those type of beats are always fun to, I always pretend I’m one of those swaggy rappers when I hear those beats, but I don’t really know what they’re saying. So I was just like, ‘Let me pretend I’m one of those. Let me make a song being one of those rappers, just kind of mimicking them and making fun of them.’"
So was he mocking Future? Young Thug? Chief Keef?

"It’s just kind of a parody," he says. "It’s to be taken just like Saturday Night Live. There’s not really any jabs taken at anybody specifically just that idea of that type of music was funny."
