Hopsin Seeking Redemption
Hopsin was not happy how Knock Madness turned out and he doesn’t care if you know it. That being said with the upcoming Pound Syndrome album, Hop is seeking some personal redemption and to make up for it.
“It’s just an album that I kind of wanted to redeem myself on from my last album because I didn’t like it”
In order to do that, Hopsin has taken the helms from a production stand point. The entire album was self produced in house, and only features guest spots from Funk Volume label mates. Nothing from this album was rushed.
“I took a lot more time and studied everything when it comes to mixing and mastering, different plug-ins to use and I just kinda wanted to step my game up on that side of making music,” he says. “I took a year of just learning and sitting with other producers and everything, asked them questions and just trying to step my game up.”
To sum it all up. Hopsin says “I started the label and I don’t, it’s just gonna be weird if everybody else released an album and I didn’t,” he says. “It’s just gonna make me look bad like I’m falling off. I wanted the whole label to just go hard. It’s dope if they’re dropping albums, but it’d be doper if everyone dropped an album. So I just wanted to contribute to that to just make the label even bigger.”
