Hopsin is not on the "tip of every hip hop fans tongue". Maybe those hipster fans
Hopsin is only known by these "Real hip hop" dudes who started listening to hip hop in 2011, couldn't name one person in the Wu, and joined on the Lil Wayne/Drake suck bandwagon. Punk, you've brought up people like Frank Ocean, Kendrick, and Lupe alot. Those people are so far ahead of Hopsin in terms of fame right now it's not even funny. And as for Ruthless records, it's been 3 years. He made another album on his own label, announced another, people get fucked by record companies every day. Those same people bounce back from it:
Cam'Ron got no promotion for Purple Haze, left Roc a Fella, then released Killa Season which was #2 on the billboard 200 and #1 on the US R&B and Rap charts. Then 3 years later he released Crime Pays, with no hit singles or hype, what happens? #3 on the billboard 200, #1 on the R&B and Rap charts. Most famous guest feature on that album? 40 Cal.
You act like Ruthless not only pushed his album back, but took all of his money, his house, his family...
