Hopsin - Travel through the Adventures of an Ill Mind - Incredible Rapper

Updated on October 14, 2013

Welcome to a true ill Mind

There is a new phoenix on the rise, achieving amazing stat's on Youtube, he is a regular guy, but has a very appealing voice when it comes to rapping words into a tongue twisted flurry. His rap name is Hopsin, and he has claimed victory to a new thrown on Youtube as the "illest" new rapper alive on it. He has managed to scrape up 2,579,418 views as of the writing, and publishing of this article about him, on his new song video release known as, "Ill Mind Of Hopsin 5"

Hopsin has been on Youtube for quite some time now, cranking out many of his stylish rap videos, but his most recent collaboration with some cool friends has been the most extraordinary performance yet.

Its paying off huge for him with the audience there, and his new song has gone completely viral all across the web it seems socially (I found it on Facebook the first night it was launched when it was only at a whopping 23,000 views), as well as many websites are catching wind of his popularity and writing a flurry of articles about him, just as this one is being crafted today on July 21st 2012. He also has his own record label known as Funk Volume.

Oh, has he been on Youtube

So when was his youtube video ILL MIND OF HOPSIN 5, actually produced, well I'm not really sure when that was done, but I do know his new video was published onto his Youtube channel just 3 days ago, on July 18th 2012, and you can guess what has made such an occurrence of epic rap proportions happen.

It's quite obvious though that so many young people simply love his song pretty much, and they are his very formula, and major focus in that particular video, where he digs deep into the superficial cores of many young folks daily and nightly habitual lives today.

With a most original rap style he also digs his teeth in deep sort of speak, and makes some critical blows at the stereotypical foolish types of young folks, as his rap voice technically deconstructs each character that's portrayed in his video, and psychologically shrinks their minds down to the size of a simpleton mentally, with his powerful wordplay as well as sharp lyrical delivery.

Another great example of this analytical rap style of his, is when he breaks down a persons silly looking appearance, irresponsible actions in life, and delivers a wicked but true message to them each, similar to that of a scolding parent who is trying to discipline their child severely for doing something extremely wrong.

His mouth is on Fire its so Raw! and UNCUT

I personally love his style, this guy has real swag, and isn't afraid to say whats really on his mind, as well as on the mind of those young folks who seem brain dead today. I just wish he had got this out in time enough, to help prevent from many of the folks who been doing such harm to themselves and others all around the globe.

More hip-hop rappers should follow in his footsteps, where he uses rap techniques as a tool, and instrument of teaching good messages, using negative reinforcement to churn out a positive outcome, as opposed to that of using negative to generate more negative realities, in the hopes to gain their popularity, and money.

He also focuses on God, being the ultimate power over us all, which says a great deal about his character traits in real life.

Hopsin is a rap lyricist evolution of sorts, and end result of growing up in a country, and place that allows way to much senseless things to take launch, and nest in the minds of our youth (TV, Media, Movies, Video games, etc....), and so with that being said lets venture into the depths, and adventures of his Ill mind.

Parental Advisory Warning! this video has some harsh language

Youtube Stats

That cool video above actually has broken some Youtube records for music videos going viral with 1,000,000 views in the first 21 hours of launch according to Wikipedia, and for any new artist starting out this is quite significant. He's also already officially on Wikipedia actually you can look him up there for his full life story of success, and he owns his own recording studio in his bedroom of all places.

It appears that this young dude is about to become a web billionaire for sure, if he keeps up this awesome momentum on Youtube. He has also attained close to 50,000,000 Youtube views total on his channel, and is a legend in the making there. (A grand total of 48,710,374 views on July 21st 2012 on the HopsinTV youtube channel.)

      Hey Lord, thanks bro for the cool visit and for sharing it, yeah he's very unique he actually produces his own music, his own videos in his room, and the instrumentals as well.

      This particular song I focused upon in this hub here was shot in his room I do believe, and I was blown away when I discovered that, by roaming through Hopsin's youtube channel. He definitely was a worthy candidate for me to write about.

      Never heard from Hopsin, but I heard his Funk Volume video. He has enough potential to surpass P-Diddy. He reminds me of snoog Dog, and a little FLAIR of Heavy D. Wonderful hits on his YouTube Channel; Young kids loved him for his real life lyrics and crude representation of every struggling kid. Thanks for sharing this one Mike! Sharing!

      @TToombs08, I think Billybuc is a genius in his own right, he has a very unique technique and appraoch to the whole attraction thing, and what does he have to lose you know, just like many of us here.

      He's pretty much going for it, just like this young rapper dude here I wrote the hub about, I admire motivation no matter where I detect its presence, and this is one of my cause here on hubpages, its to share the wealth, and presence of others that need to get known even more, because they have attained such a high quality and value in life as a whole.

      You know how I do here TToombs, I don't hold no digital punches, hehe!

      @Josh, yeah man this dude is astonishing with his vocal skills, and I use to rap myself, but he would tear me up with his smart word play. LOL.

      @redwards01 , Yup Eminem was one of the first to use youtube fame to get noticed by rap fans worldwide, its a cool phenomenon there today.

      I think with that many youutube views, he has become almost as popular as Eminem give him a few more years, now all he needs to do is go even more global, but it might take the music industries acceptance, which he seems opposed to actually.

      I am amazed at the number of young talent that is being discovered on YouTube. That's how Justin Beiber got his start too, being discovered on YouTube. Maybe billybuc is onto something here. :) LOL VUM!

      Very interesting because I just read a hub on him(partially about him) the other day. That was the first time I have heard of him. I am not a fan of rap but can respect good talent. And has the talent for sure! Great tribute and thanks for sharing!

      I've been listening to Hopsin for some time now. I found him to be extremely raw, which is a reminder of when Eminem first began rapping. Hopefully he can get as popular as Eminem.
