Hopsin sits down with Hard Knock TVto talk about a variety of topics.
The California MC speaks on the difference between being signed to Ruthless Records at one point and now being independent with his own label, Funk Volume.
"I learned to never sign a deal, and I had what it took all along," he said. "I used to think that I needed somebody else to help me get where I needed to get. If this was like ten years ago then I probably would need a record deal and I probably would have had to send a demo in and needed a label to help push and promote me. But thanks to the internet all that has changed."
Hopsin stressed the importance of artists being original and stop mimicking what they see other rock stars and actors do on tv.
He talks about the origin of the name of his record label, producing his own music, doing his own video, huge upcoming tour, Spiderman, moving to Australia and possibly retiring.
