While starting his music career, Hopsin decided to sport colored eye contacts while performing in his music videos. He stated that he used the contacts to give himself a memorable appearance and differentiate himself from other African American rappers with the cliché appearance. He credits Eminem as the rapper that initially got him interested into hip hop music.
Hopsin is staunchly against drug and alcohol usage, and has criticized how mainstream entertainers promote usage of drugs and alcohol to youth.

MORE OF HIS EARLY LIFE
FIRST SONG AND ALBUM/ WHY SO POULAR
HIS FIRST SONG IS Gazing At The Moonlight
He is trying to make a name for himself by making fun of rappers yet he is exactly like them! Seriously he is no different from any of those mainstream rappers he claims to hate so much! And black eminem?! Maybe if he snorted a silo of cocain and was beaten across the head a couple of times. I will admit that sometimes a few good line slip in but seriously the dude is corny, overrated, and raps like he's reading off of a paper with dislexia. And contrary to the top of this paragraph I do like OF more cuz they allow me to think about there lyrics and they are trying to be different. HE PERFORMS RAP AND HIP HOP
