In an age of copy and paste rappers it’s rare that I get to say this, but there really isn’t anyone else out there like Hopsin. Maybe you know him as the guy with the white eyes, maybe you know him from that XXL Freshman cover or Am I a Psycho, or maybe you don’t know him at all. In that case, I couldn’t think of a better introduction to the inner-workings on the man’s cranium than new video Ill Mind of Hopsin 5. With a self-produced, rock-edged beat pulsing in the background, Hopsin unleashes nearly five minutes of microphone fury, laying the blame for society and hip-hop’s ills both on the rappers that perpetuate lies and the unthinking public that consumes them. While Ill Mind 5 isn’t attached to a larger project (yet), with Hopsin’s name growing by the minute you can expect much more from him coming soon.
