Interesting Facts

Hopsin claims he never smoked, drank, or taken any recreational drugs whatsoever in his life and has criticized the way entertainers promote drug and alcohol use among youths.

In fact, the rapper emphasizes on being against drug and alcohol usage and the irreversible impacts they can cause in some of his songs like Nocturnal Rainbows.

Some of the reasons why Hopsin left Ruthless Records is because he claims they never really supported the production of his album Gazing at the Moonlight and they didn’t even allow him to hear the finished master before releasing it publicly.

Hopsin removed the white-colored contact lenses from his image, but still stands out from the rest with his complete drug and alcohol-free lifestyle.
