"The whole thing that got me here was controversy," admits Hopsin. In 2010, The Panorama City, California native's back was against the wall. He was unhappily signed to Eazy-E's former label with a debut (Gazing At The Moonlight) failing to meet his artistic and commercial expectations after years of acting on a major network and a feature film. Hardly a "kiddie rapper," the emcee took to the Internet and released, "Sag My Pants," an instant rewind. "I lashed out against Ruthless Records. I knew that would have some shock value. But at the time, I had to do whatever I could do." Hopsin's survival mechanisms have guided him through life. As a youth placed in Special Education classes, Hop overcame the obstacles to become a video editor, music producer in addition to rapper. He is also co-founder of the low profile indie-powerhouse Funk Volume, currently with 100,000 YouTube subscribers and 145,000 Facebook Likes. This 2012 XXL Freshman is at the top of his class.

With cover stories and a plethora of seven-figure YouTube content, the self-made talent is sticking to his formula on his third LP, Knock Madness. "It's gonna be hard to top—I'm calling it right now," he boasts, claiming it's just "an enhancement" of his work. Moreover, he wants to punctuate his career. "This will probably be my last album for a long time." Elaborating, the recluse promises "the biggest tour I've ever done, and I'm leavin' for a while" as devotes his attention to Funk Volume.

While controversy may have made Hopsin a star, skill and courage made him a fan favorite. Whether making art in his basement, crowd-surfing or skiing Down Under, Hopsin has the attitude and charisma that makes Hip Hop unpredictable again.

"I was sitting in my first period precalculus class. I checked my phone and thought I was seeing things. The video had gotten 7,000 views the night before and was up to 100K by the morning. I almost fell out of my chair." Needless to say, precalc was a wrap for the day.

The video for "No Sucka MCs" earned 17-year-old wunderkind Token his first real burn on the rap blogs. Littered with timely, toothy, subliminal lyrics like "Until the XXL cover will set it up / I'm a junior now, I'll f*** a freshman up," the track catapulted Token from provincial problem to national nuisance. Originally submitted to an online rap competition –one of several Token ended up winning– the song has amassed 1.6 million views on YouTube. It was this track that prompted another Massachusetts native who'd gotten his start rhyming, superstar Mark Wahlberg, to take to Twitter and proclaim Token his new favorite rapper.
