Shots Fired! Hopsin Attacks Every Stereotype He Sees As Polluting Hip-Hop These Days (Video)
If Hopsin has been consistent at anything, it has been staying true to the lyrical craftsmanship of MCing, filling his songs with sharp rhymes and witty wordplay. In recent years, mainstream Rap music has rewarded MCs who do the opposite of this; spit simple rhymes with cookie-cutter flows over hard beats. Hopsin’s latest music video has him mocking these type of rappers in a way only he could pull off.
His latest album, Pound Syndrome, features a skit called “No Words,” and now the short track has gotten a music video. The video has Hopsin dressed up in costume as today’s stereotypical rapper, a persona called Hash Brown, and includes an expensive car, guns, chains, cash being thrown around, and a flow that sounds like it could be any of the cookie-cutter MCs in today’s spotlight.
The song and video is meant to be satire, as Hopsin literally raps gibberish over the trap beat. Check out the video below:
Do you find Hopsin’s mockery of today’s Hip-Hop funny or distasteful?
