Hopsin To Leave Funk Volume, Airs Out Partner Damien Ritter
Hopsin is threatening to leave his Funk Volume label, due to issues with his business partner, Damien Ritter.
The Los Angeles rapper took to social media over the weekend, where he revealed problems with Ritter, who co-founded Funk Volume with him in 2009.
"F*ck Damien Ritter. This man is the death of funk volume," Hopsin wrote.
"I've been having issues with my business partner Damien Ritter," he later elaborated. "We started this whole FV sh*t years ago, but this man has all the sudden built up the courage to disrespect me and tell me I don't work hard when I've made him Extremely wealthy over the years from my music. At this point, if he doesn't leave funk volume, then I will. I'm putting it out there publicly so he knows that it's f*ck him forever. If ur a real Hopsin fan, I need your support right now and I only hope u continue to strongly support me if/when I leave FV. My heart will always rep FV, but as of right now, it's not home for me as long as Dame is apart of it."
"If ur a real Hopsin fan, i hope u still f*ck with me with or without Fv," Hopsin continued. "This isn't something I want, its just something that may need to happen. I made this man VERY wealthy over the years from my music, and for him to tell me I don't work hard at all is just flat out disrespect."
"Never forget the reason why u even have a little name in this business pal. My Raw vision paid u big time"
He concluded by saying the issues between him and Ritter cannot be resolved easily: "I'm sorry guys, but this situation doesn't end with a 'got ya'. I wish it did."
Fuck Damien Ritter. This man is the death of funk volume.
