Hopsin recently delivered his new album No Shame, along with the ninth (and most personal) installment of Ill Mind Of Hopsin yet. In the song, Hopsin pens a letter to his estranged son, who is currently living with his mother in Australia. Lyrically, the track is highly personal, evocative, and emotional; a vulnerability that Hopsin isn’t afraid to confront in the studio.
In HotNewHipHop’s new interview, Hop opens up about making the track, elaborating on the Slim Shady influence: “I definitely [on No Shame] used a lot of Eminem & D12-like inspiration. I went back and listened to a lot of their music because I felt like that was the stuff I came up on, and I felt I was losing that side of me…I went and bought all the D12 albums, all the Eminem albums all over again and I embedded it in my mind.” Listen to the interview below:
