Funk Volume has Fallen: So, What’s Next?
We updated you yesterday that Funk Volume is no more. Below is the official Facebook post ending the Funk Volume label. Before this post Hopsin promised to release new music soon. In that post he states, “The undercover prodigy will rise!” Then he adds the hashtag #undercoverprodigy to this post about the death of Funk Volume. A clue to the new label name maybe? I wonder after all this drama, will Dizzy Wright, Jerren Benton, or maybe even Swizzz will start a new label. Or maybe this will be a solo Hopsin project. Only time will tell.
Fans with a FV Tattoo Please Stand Up!
After all the smoke cleared Hopsin decided to recognize all the dedicated fans who had a Funk Volume tattoo. Even though this drama will not keep Hopsin and the other Funk Volume artist from releasing new music, it is a confusing time for those forever branded with the logo. Then again there are such things as cover ups and fond memories of when FV and the music it released was an inspiration in your life.
The FV tattoo pictured in the Instagram photo was a repost of a fan’s tattoo. There wasn’t much of a response to Hopsin’s post on Instagram. But on Facebook an overwhelming amount of Hopsin fans shared their FV tattoo. Some of the tattoos were old and some were barely healed yet. I also wonder what Hopsin meant by he has something special for all these tatted fans. One should appreciate that someone you don’t even know put your logo on their body for life. And now it’s of something that is history. We should take a moment for all the Funk Volume tattoos in the world. RIP Funk Volume
