Plaza Live Theatre to get a taste of Hopsin’s ill mind

Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known by his rap name Hopsin, disappointed fans that were waiting to see him perform in Orlando, by getting arrested downtown for disorderly conduct prior to his show in 2012. (Stories behind the arrest vary.)

With a new album under his belt, “Knock Madness,” and all disorderly conduct charges dropped, he is ready to give his Central Florida fans that performance.

Once signed to the late rapper Eazy E’s record label “Ruthless Records,” which is now run by his wife Tomica Wife, Hopsin grew unhappy with the way his career was being handled. He eventually left the label, and joined forces with Damien “Dame” Ritter in 2009 to launch Funk Volume Records.

He released his first album on the label titled “RAW,” in which he pulled a song out of his vault to diss Wright, titled “Kill Her.” He went on to direct and edit the video for the single directed and edited the video to “kill her” that started to get a buzz. Which he followed up with “Sag My pants.”

Hopsin has also contributed small parts in television and films: such as “Fame,” “Bomb the World,” “Independent Living: The Funk Volume Documentary,” and his most notable work “That’s So Raven.” He also plays himself on “Battle Rap Stars,” a mobile game that gives rappers the opportunity to battle against each other.

Hopsin’s “Knock Madness Tour” will be touching down at The Plaza Live Theatre on Thursday, March 6. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. The Plaza Live is located at 425 North Bumby Ave., Orlando, Fla.

Tickets are available online via for $22.50.
