No its not a joke, Hopsin is garbage and is overrated just because he's an underground artist that "speaks his mind."
No one is being force fed anything with Drake, if you don't like, don't listen, pretty simple.
Hopsin isn't a cornball at all. It has nothing to do with that "speaking his mind" bullshit like you say...he is different which is why a lot of people have moved towards his music. Everyone is slowly starting to get tired of Drake and Lil Wayne so they're moving towards Ocean, Fiasco (again), Hopsin, Sweatshirt, Lamar etc.
People are being force fed Drake, the guy is a fake. Yeah, so much street cred and attitude, because appearing in a Bieber video makes you like that, 2pac has nothing on him..such a joke. Drake and the rest of them auto tune douchebags are all over Youtube adverts, Billboard charts, TV stations, Spotify adverts etc. Everywhere.
They're (YMCMB) all talentless douchebags.
