Hopsin Pranks Fans, Announces New Album [VIDEO]


It seems like Hopsin pulled the ultimate prank on his fans. A couple weeks ago, the California rapper posted on Facebook that he had given up his career, signed away his share of his Funk Volume imprint and said he was moving to Australia. The picture even showed him in the airport with his bags in hand.

However, Hop posted a new video over the weekend with Jarren Benton which proves he’s not going anywhere. In fact, he followed his bit with the official cover art for his upcoming project Pound Syndrome. Catch his hilarious Dumb And Dumber To style prank above and look out for Hopsin’s new body of work coming in 2015.

California rapper Hopsin aka Marcus Jamal Hopson has quit the music industry and is headed for Australia. The face of Funk Volume took to his personal Facebook account to reveal that the game just isn’t for him anymore. He thanked his fans for their support, but said he’s now off “to venture out into new areas in life.”

Hopsin also revealed that he has signed over his half of his Funk Volume imprint to his business partner Dame. He leaves behind SwizZz and XXL freshman Jarren Benton and Dizzy Wright. Apparently, his thoughts on quitting the business have been manifesting over the past several years. Check out what he had to say as he boards the plane for Australia.


“I just wanted to take time out to say I appreciate all of u who have supported my music over these past few years. A Lot of u have told me stories about how I have changed your life. You too have changed mine in ways that u can never imagine. Unfortunately, tonight is the night that I am actually moving away to Australia. Over the past couple years I have come to conclusion that this profession just isn’t for me, so im going to venture out into new areas of life. I will always be an MC at heart, but this rap stuff just isn’t for me. I hope Youguys can respect it. I’ve signed over my half of the funk volume label to my business partner Dame. I also wished Swizzz, Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton good luck in their careers. Thank u all! I’m out.”
