Hopsin Quits Hip Hop Career, Gives Away Funk Volume, & Moves To Australia


Yesterday, one of the most successful independent artists in Hip Hop, Hopsin, announced that he will no longer be involved in music, handed over half of his label “Funk Volume” to his long time business partner, and will be moving to Australia for other ventures in life.

UGHHBLOG interviewed him last year, and he is one of the most humblest dudes in the industry.  We wish the best for Hopsin, and his future.

Below is what Hopsin posted yesterday on social media:

“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 you guys 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.” – Marcus Jamal Hopson aka “Hopsin”
