    Third time’s the charm for horrorcore rapper Hopsin, as the angry and often awful character balances his aggressive, violent vocal style with more pop and approachable music during the rewarding Knock Madness.

    Knock Madness is indeed a stepping stone album, one that can only produce even better music in the future.

    Die-hard Funk Volume supporters get everything they want and more with Knock Madness.... But casual fans and savvier listeners may ultimately find Hop’s latest frustrating.

    Knock Madness works best when Hopsin is either angrily fighting or humorously poking fun at some sort of ludicrosity.

    In order to continue to excel, he needs to move past the solipsistic and look outward. He raps better when he does.

    Okay before you DARE even think about bashing Hopsin, you have to look at the mainstream TRASH that comes out these days.

It's not a perfect album (especially jungle bash...that sucked some camel but its damn close. RAW is the perfect album, but this one definitely gives RAW a run for its money. Hopsin raps from the heart and deserves much more than these people that get high and practically get their cats to piss on paper and try to pass it off as rap. Expand

While contains the goofy rapper bashing Hop we all know, it also has songs that show a different Hopsin. I think this was his first album to truly show his internal struggle as a rapper. I personally like the direction he seems to be heading in rap. Expand

    Hopsin is definitely not the underrated intellectual he imagines him self as.

    His hooks are corny as hell and nothing he says is actually INTERESTING. Some of his bars will make you laugh but not in the sense that he actually told a clever joke, it's like saying a joke in a kids movie.

    The production is decent and Hopsin can actually rhyme.

    If Hopsin wants to listen to his cringey, fanatical fans and continue to make his music (without realizing it) to the lowest common denominator then fine; not interested MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
