10 Rappers to Watch in 2012
Twitter: @Hopsin

Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif.

Claim to Fame:

  • Former face of Ruthless Records
  • Collaborative track with Tech N9ne and B.o.B.

License to Ill:
Straight out of Panorama City comes this razor-tongued triple threat (MC/producer/director). Savage rap is his bread and butter, but Hopsin has proven on his independently released albums that he can spit bars on just about any topic. He occasionally prods his peers for fun but understands whose button to push. At times brilliant, at times bizarre, Hop is relentlessly engaging. Think Eminem. Think Tech N9ne. Think RA the Rugged Man. Think.
