Hopsin Crafts Well-Written Raps on New Record

‘Pound Syndrome’ Shows Rapper Making Changes for the Better

Fall into the ill mind of Hopsin again. Like past albums, this one is filled with well-written raps, some superficial, some profound. It’s clear Hop has made changes for the better since last year when he went through a phase of depression, dissing his own Knock Madness album (2013) and walking offstage mid-performance in Colorado during his Knock Madness Tour (2014). In his rap “Fort Collins” featuring Dizzy Wright, he apologizes to his Colorado fans about that night. Other tracks such as “Ill Mind of Hopsin 7” — a series of raps tackling world controversies — and “Fly” address religion, self-inspiration, and other insightful matters. Hop is right in “The Pound (Intro)” when he says he needs to be smarter and that this album is “harder than the last shit,” because this one proves to be different than his others.
