Break out your demon white lenses and revisit your 2010 phase of hip hop hipster-ism, because Hopsin is bringing his ill mind to Montreal on May 17th, as a part of his "Knock Madness Canada Tour", Hopsin is throwing a show at Theatre Corona Virgin Mobile for all his montrealer fans, so y'all better get ready for the high volumes of funk.

Funk Volume

After his initial rise to fame through his Ill Mind Of Hopsin 4 video that features heavy name-dropping, ear-splitting disses and some self ridicule, the Funk Volume foreman went through quite a few phases where his "don't give a F" persona morphed into a more "rap's vigilante" front, which upset a few people and caused him to snap a couple of times (NSFW language):

The rap game can suck my dick and so can u two faced dick riding fans who are quick to turn your back on me if I don't give u what u want

— Hopsin (@hopsin) February 18, 2014

 We all know the industry can be tough, and his so-called fans should really cut him some slack, 'cause even with all the hate Hopsin gets, he still manages to keep up with current trends while maintaining his unique rapping style that packs that sweet old school punch (which you can peep below).

We are giving away a pair of tickets to the show in Montreal, Click Here for chance to win.

See y'all at the show!
