Because YOU, a 19 year old white boy, asked ME what the fuck I know about police brutality because I'm from NY and not LA.

And then you proceed to namecheck 2Pac who had nothing to do with LA at that point in his life.

You talked out your ass, and keep running away from it. Admit that you were wrong and trying to be a know it all, with that shit.

Exactly

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...

I would rather hear Martha Stewart rap then Lil Wayne. It's just like what Chris Tucker said "Lil Wayne sound like a lil retarded kid" Krispy Kreme is even better than Lil Wayne.

Kendrick Lamar is decent but Hopsin just has a massive point to prove and I'm 19 years old, and I can tell you right now that a lot of my generation has swayed towards Ocean, Hopsin, Fiasco etc. You may say "Fiasco is that and this blah blah" But everyone is moving towards them instead of Lil Wayne and Drake. I think only 14 year olds listen to Lil Wayne, so lame.
I'm 14 and even I have to say my generation are moving on from Lil Wayne

Wayne's last album sold over 900k in the first week, until he has an album that flops or doesn't sell as much as his others, I won't say "people have moved on from Wayne."

Of course I think his music is terrible nowadays but his album sales are still the highest out of all rappers.

I'm a Pac stan and I have to say Wayne is getting close in terms of work ethic and touching the people ( Though Pac touched the people in a more meaningful way).

No. Not even close. His music is shit. How much of it he puts out is irrelevant. When Wayne puts together a 7 Day Theory level album in a week you let me know. Not sure on how Wayne's "touching" people at all.

And since when does a rapper collaborating with a pop star make them a sellout? They aren't catering to just YOU.

Work ethic yes, he's always touring, promoting, hopping on other songs and the guy probably has like 250 - 300 unreleased songs already. But Wayne isn't exactly known for touching the people lawl.

How could he touch the people if your generation is moving on from him (which I doubt since the 13-17 year olds are his main audience now sadly)

And what Notorious said about Wayne, I was shocked he sold that much.
