Hopsin Wants To Work With Macklemore

Hopsin delivered an album of gems with his recent Knock Madness, but he told MTV this week that there was one thing missing from his album that he would’ve liked: a track with Macklemore.

“[Macklemore’s] dope. He’s inspired a lot of my music just because he’s just free to say to whatever he wants,” he said in an interview. “He’s just himself. I notice a lot of white rappers sometimes, they’ll feel like they have to be like, almost aggressive. But he’s just like, ‘this is who I am, this is what I am, I don’t care if I’m not hard.’ He’s not trying to be hard… He’s just a normal guy. He embraces the fact that he’s a fucking white guy. He’s not trying to be anything but him. So I just have to respect that.”

Hop also spared some kind words for Macklemore’s producer and partner in crime, Ryan Lewis. “The production behind it that Ryan Lewis does is really amazing to me,” he said. “I just like the sound. I hear it, and the songs are like movies, like audio movies.”
