ALBUM REVIEW: Raw by Hopsin. I’m sorry I’m doing this right off the bat but this album cover sucks and that goes for all of his albums. Now Raw is an album that I feel indifferent on because the production isn’t that bad but can get really bad in some parts. My main issue just comes in with the subject matter of the album. Now I can see why people gravitated to Hopsin because he was against smoking weed and dissed a lot of rappers that were hot when they came out but now it just comes off as corny like what did Lupe Fiasco ever do to you. There is also some songs where he’s talking about his girl problems and the only song I like where he’s doing this is Heather Nicole because unlike Baby Daddy and I’m Not Introducing You he’s the one who actually caused the trouble and it’s actually a very honest song and it’s one of my favorite songs off of Raw. The best parts of this album is when Hopsin is talking about his struggles about going into the industry like I Am Raw and Pillow Man and when he’s flexing his lyricism like on songs like Trampoline, How You Like Me Now and Bloody Potion. You can tell that Hopsin is heavily influenced by Eminem and it comes to the fore front on this albums and you can just hear it in his flow. It’s not a bad album but it’s not great it’s just alright also some of the lyrics on this album are just really corny for example when he basically insinuates because one person took a puff of weed that it fucked up their hole entire life’s. The third verse of Nocturnal Rainbows is just really corny to me in general. Nocturnal Rainbows was one of my favorite songs on the album back in the day but it’s just not that great to me anymore. It could be just because I grew up or I just wanted to be different but yeah like I just said it’s not bad but not great.
Favorite songs: Pillow Man, Heather Nicole, You Are My Enemy
Worst Songs: I’m Not Introducing You, Sag My Pants, and Kill Her.
