http://www.hardknock.tv Exclusive in-depth interview with Hopsin at his house. Part 1 starts with Hopsin talking to Nick Huff Barili about the making of Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 and why he choose to take a different path with his lyrics. Hopsin describes how one night he couldn't sleep so he went down to his studio and lyrics just came to him easier than ever before. Originally intended to be more like Ill Mind 4 in that he was just planning on wild 'n out, it was through a conversation with God that he decided to take a huge career risk and try something new on Ill Mind 5. Although he was worried that fans wouldn't connect with his new approach, Hopsin's faith was rewarded with over a million views within a day of releasing the music video for Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 (currently at over 12 Million). Part one of the interview ends with Hopsin talking about Eminem, whom he calls his favorite MC and says that it wasn't until Em came along that he started to care about Hip Hop. Hopsin states that if he is going to get compared to an MC he would rather it be Em who has an elaborate rhyming style that all the trending rappers right now with their simple flows that sound the same.

We are just getting started. Tune in next week for part 2 with Hopsin only at www.hardknock.tv
