Every damn time I see his name, I keep mistaking it as "Hoisin" and it makes me crave Chinese food

EPIC and absolutely needed to be said. It's one thing to live in a ghetto but it's another to glorify it and act like there's nothing better.

Link to the lyrics so everyone can sing along.

=======================

Hopsin - Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Man I hate rap, but if the shoe fits, wear it
I've become a freak of nature all the kids stare at
Who walk around bumping RAW with the sh-t blaring
Saying "fark school" and dropping out like a miscarriage
I'm embarrassed
And I'm ashamed I played a part in this devilish game
Making your common sense perish
But I ain't taking the full blame
Cause most of you chumps running around here ain't never had strict parents
All of your brain cells rotting from weed
You feeling like if you ain't got it, life's not as complete
You're having sex with every-motherfarkin'-body you see
With a past so dark that Satan'd jump out of his seat
But still you out in these streets thinking you hot as can be
Without the knowledge to lead so you just follow the sheep
Making sure your lame swag is all polished and clean
While your favorite rapper's like "Yeah, he got it from me"
You been brainwashed by a fake life that you're used to livin'
When I say the word "fun", what do you envision
Probably drinking and smoking out with your crew
And chilling with clueless women you trying to bang, bumping New Edition
Is that all you think life really is
Well if so, then you're a farking idiot
I honestly feel like grabbing your head and hitting it
Matter of fact, you don't even deserve a brain, GIMME IT!
Do you even have any goals
Aside from bagging these hoes and packing a bowl
Well let me guess- No
You're only in school because your parents make you go
And all you do is play beer pong and hang out with your bros
Yo, society's got you living for a whack cause
You're a farking adult with no skills at all
You don't read any books or play ball
You don't draw, you literally do nothing at all
Still you fiend for the glamorous fruits you don't have
Cause you idolize rappers that do
And all they say is "I got money and it's stacked to the roof"
And now you think that it's gon' magically happen to you
How, Your lazy ass don't commit to labor
You pick something up, try it out, and put it down two minutes later
Then you complain about your life cause it ain't getting catered
Now whoever tries to call you on your bullsh-t's a hater
You wanna succeed, you have to try
Or one day you'll get older and regret it all cause you can't provide
Your friends are lowlifes, don't act surprised
Look, just cut the bad fruit off of the tree, make the sacrifice

[Verse 2]
Girls, stop acting like you want a guy with traits like Romeo
biatch that's a farking lie
You always talk about how every man's fake
And you can't take it and you want something real
Shut up tramp, save it
Twice a week you put on your makeup and damn bracelets
And head to the club half-naked with your ass shaking
Pulling a lowlife n-gga who claim he cash making
Til you let him hit and find out he work at the gas station
One of them n-ggas got you pregnant and you can't raise it
But you caused it, your actions made a fat statement
You want Romeo, then act patient
And stop fronting like he in the club posted in the back waitin'
It's the club, where guys put on a new persona
After they get loaded with a few coronas
They always shouting and wild out with habits that very few condone of
Then they look for beautiful brainless biatches like you to bone 'em
Then when they leave you, you cry and cry
Talking 'bout, oh my god I can't find a guy
I've spent so many years and I've tried and tried
Why am I even on Earth I should die
You want Romeo, you're not worthy
You're cock-thirsty
You're nasty and probably got herpes
Sometimes the secret to find is to stop searching
Try a new formula, cause your last one's not working

[Verse 3]
The term real n-gga's publicly used
And I need to know what it means, cause I'm farking confused
Are you one for always busting your tool
With nothing to lose and something to prove to homies up in your crew
Is it because you're selling drugs to get loot
And brag about how you done been shot and stabbed
Like it's fun to be you
But your life's a struggle, right, and you just hustling through
Nah, you hamster ass n-gga, you just stuck in a loop
Man, why do black people gotta be the only ones who can't evolve
Cause you in the streets acting like a neanderthal
It's clear you can't stand the law, you're lost as an abandoned dog
And all you're interested in is fighting, rapping, and basketball
I can't even fark with you, cause if we out in public
You gon' get caught stealing some sh-t and get my ass in trouble, too
You'll get old and be nothing
Living life in these streets
Thugging and starting sh-t with anybody mean mugging
Look at you, a real n-gga, thinking your life's cool
Girls used to turn me down for guys who were like you
Til you grab their heart and shove a spearhead right through
Then they regret it because it wasn't the right move
Your real n-gga talk seems bogus
A real n-gga don't brag about being real as long as he knows it
And his future doesn't seem hopeless
A real n-gga stays out of jail, handles sh-t, and he keeps focused

[Verse 4]
So all you rappers whose soul is out in the wrong
You inspire the issue I wrote about in this song
You go to pile on the young who roam around in the slums
See this is what happens when rap's overcrowded with bums
Hope the hour is long when I'm rolling out with your tongue
The man above is my guide, you know the power is strong
All you menacing freaks are only in it for cheese
And the mass control limit was breached - fark hip-hop
They only in it for cheese, and any eyewitness can see
They purposely making the innocent weak
My existence on this planet's for you, I ain't only here to benefit me
Yo we need to make a change while there's still time
It is hard, and sometimes I struggle trying to reveal mine
I can guide you if you feel blind
I just need you to be willing to journey into my ill mind

(One or two of those edits might have been a little conservative, but admit I don't know all about the filters, at least for words I don't use myself, and I didn't want to make a mess of it. I also know these edits are a bit cheeseball, but I just wanted to get it done so it could be pasted.)

In style, a bit, maybe, but the content reminds me more of someone like Immortal Technique.

i was thinking Jedi Mind Tricks too. both are really smart dudes, combining sick rhyme schemes with some thought-provoking messages. but Jedi's flow is a slower pace.

There is not enough positive rap out there...

Although not exactly "positive", this counts ...good stuff.

I know this is really cathartic for people who don't listen to much hip-hop, but he is miles away from being the first guy to address this stuff. Miles. And he's not even the best.

Don't get me wrong, I still dig on this song, but, like... it's like watching people eat their first General Tso's and yammer on about how finally someone's doing Chinese Food right.

On the flip side, the reason so many people don't listen to much hip hop in the first place is because most of it is defined by the complete trash that gets radio play from big houses buying their singles onto the radio so they can sell albums to twelve year old kids with all the refinement of taste of a bowl of gruel.

Before I started hearing things like Immortal Technique, Royce da 5'9", Jedi Mind Tricks, Sage Francis, Tech N9ne, Aesop Rock, etc. I hated almost all rap because the stuff that gets played, unless you happen to wind up getting exposed to underground acts somewhere, is utter shiat. Retards in designer "ghetto clothes" and stupid mouthpieces rhyming about how tough they had it in their make-believe childhood, all the drugs they used to sell back at a time when most of them were attending some preppy suburban high school and overproduced bullshiat "music" from some studio that thinks innovation means ripping a sample out of an Aerosmith song.

Fact is, if you say "rap sucks complete ass" you're going to be right about 99% of the time because 99% of what anybody actually hears is complete garbage, so this sort of thing, to a lot of people, is completely novel.

Hell, I used to think Macromantics was great even though she's objectively awful at her trade just because it was different enough to be interesting after being subjected to the latest 50 cent knock-off of the week or whatever half-assed garbage Jay "the worst rapper in history" Z was putting out.

/ sorry, catharsis....
// also, I don't care what anybody says, OFWGTKA, outside Adult Swim, isn't very good...

This is what rap used to be.

Listening to a bunch of his other stuff. Good stuff. Happy to see I'm not the only one that think Drake sucks.
