Hopsin Talks About Dissing Kanye & Kendrick On “Hop is Back”

Posted By on October 29, 2013

Funk Volume’s own Hopsin dropped “Hop is Back” last week, a ferocious track that attacks some of the game’s biggest names-including Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar.

When asked about the disses, the MC had this to say:

“I’m a Kanye West fan,” the Panorama City, California emcee says. “I like Kanye West. I like a lot of his old stuff so, you know, it’s not [like I’m not a fan]. But he’s on some bullshit now. He’s on some straight up [bullshit]. I’m not the only one that thinks this but it’s not even about what other people think. I just know what the fuck I think. Yeah, he’s on some bullshit.”

“It’s two humans,” he continues. “It doesn’t matter. We’re just two humans doing human shit at the end of the day. He does what he does. I do what I do—simple as that. If he doesn’t like it, he can do something about it. If I don’t like what he does, I can say something about it. That’s just how the world works.

Hopsin went on to discuss K.Dot:

“He raised the bar, but I’m a rapper myself,” Hopsin continues. “There’s not ever gonna be a time where I’m involved in something full-throttle with my life and I can just let someone else come out and go, ‘Boom! I’m the king.’ If I let you say that, and not acknowledge that, then I’m cool with that person being king. Nah.”
