Pound Syndrome


(Digital Download - Funk Volume #)

Review by David Jeffries

Politically incorrect and grim as the day is long, rapper Hopsin is referencing Down syndrome with the title to 2015's Pound Syndrome, but just wait till he snidely speaks on religion before putting him on full blasphemy blast. Girls "can't get off his pubics" and the competition "can't figure him out like Rubic's" because he's both quick-witted and sure with his swagger, although like Tech N9ne and Krizz Kaliko before him, he's got a dark side that just won't stop. Good news is he's got a wicked sense of humor too, and spouts out rebellious numbers like "No Fucks Given" with both vigor and venom. Jarren Benton and Dizzy Wright make guest appearances while Hopsin himself skilfully handles all of the album's production.
