    We've seen Hopsin go on twitter rants concerning the music industry/rap game in the past, however he usually calms down and it's back to business as usual. His latest message to the fans isn't in rant-form and it sounds like he's for real.

    At the beginning of 2014 we saw Hopsin go on quite the depressing Twitter rant, even going so far as to mentioning suicide and dissing his own Knock Madness album. It seemed to be a result of his new-found fame getting to him, and now once again Hopsin has taken to the social platform Twitter to bash his "Knock Madness" tour, his fans, and generally be depressed with fame.

    Prior to the release of Knock Madness, Hopsin did not appear to be in the best state. The rapper went on a dark Twitter rant, expressing his frustrations with the music industry, and even suggested committing suicide.  Hopsin explained his dark outlook with ThisIs50's Jack Thriller in a recent interview. The West Coast native was surprised at the reaction his tweets received, scratching it up to plain old shit talking.

    Charts Don't Lie: December 8

    This week nothing major dropped in terms of hip-hop. Nonetheless, overall album sales went up by 42%. To what can we blame this spike in sales? It would be safe to say Black Friday, which is basically the commencement of the holiday season/shopping frenzy. It's interesting to see the effects on the charts, as many of the rap albums we're looking at today were affected positively from this season of giving, and thus we're seeing a lot of sales increase by large percentages-- Drake's Nothing Was The Same, for example, spiked by 349% in sales.

    To say Hopsin's third album is long overdue is like saying FEMA's response to Hurricane Katrina was slightly delayed. It's been three years since he dropped his critically acclaimed sophomore album Raw. Since then, he's toured the country extensively and landed a spot on XXL's 2013 Freshman list.

    Repetition remains a reality in the rap game, and specific bars tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not sure about will be bolded.

    Hopsin's new album is on the way, but unfortunately the Funk Volume rapper seems completely frustrated with the music industry. The "Hop Is Back" emcee released the tracklist for his new album on Twitter today, just after going on a very grim rant, in which he vented about the industry, and even spoke of contemplating suicide. Hop is known for being fairly dramatic, so hopefully his comments are not to be taken completely seriously (though suicide is not exactly a topic to joke about).

    Hopsin raised some eyebrows when he went at both Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West, seemingly out of nowhere, on his recent track, "Hop Is Back". Up until this point, the Funk Volume rapper had not spoken on the comments from the track. Hop spoke to HipHopDX on his true feelings towards the two rappers.
