Biography

It would probably be easier if we told you what Hopsin doesn’t do, but Hop is an MC, producer, director, actor, porn star and editor. And his journey has been anything but painless.

Like many kids, Hopsin wanted to be “cool” and bang clueless women. But as hard as he tried, he never graduated past being that “weird black kid” that rode around on a skateboard. He tried to get attention by making people laugh, but he always ended up being the butt of the joke. He wrote songs for girls to get them to like him, but got no love.

Stuck in special education classes, Hopsin did not see much of a future. His teachers did nothing but reinforce the feelings that he wouldn’t amount to anything; especially if he continued to waste his time attending classes where nothing was actually being taught. So with no money and only a few real friends, Hopsin dropped out of school in 2004.

Despite the lack of support from anyone but himself, Hopsin knew that his raw talent to rhyme would one day allow him to spit in the face of all of his critics. In the meantime, however, he had to find a way to make money. He thought his goofiness would translate to an acting career so he auditioned for several roles. The only role that he was ever able to obtain was as a “day player” on Disney’s That’s So Raven. He thought things were looking up from there, but nothing seemed to come through after that.
