"I just wanted to take time out to say I appreciate all of u who have supported my music over these past few years. A Lot of u have told me stories about how I have changed your life. You too have changed mine in ways that u can never imagine. Unfortunately, tonight is the night that I am actually moving away to Australia," noted Hopsin, 28, whose real name is Marcus Jamal Hopson, in a Facebook post to his nearly 2.5 million fans. He also shared the announcement on his other social media accounts, such as Instagram.
"Over the past couple years I have come to [the] conclusion that this profession just isn't for me, so im going to venture out into new areas of life. I will always be an MC at heart, but this rap stuff just isn't for me. I hope You guys can respect it. I've signed over my half of the funk volume label to my business partner Dame. I also wished Swizzz, Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton good luck in their careers. Thank u all! I'm out," he ended. more >>
