After Drake’s ghostwriting scandal broke Hopsin took to Twitter to reveal his thoughts on the situation, telling followers that Drake having a ghostwriter was “not hip-hop.” The West Coast rapper expanded more on his thoughts during a recent interview with VladTV, where he told us that while he still really likes Drake’s music, he can’t respect his lyrics after the ghostwriting claims.

We also asked Hopsin about his thoughts on Royce Da 5’9″ telling VladTV that he wrote Dr. Dre’s verses for “The Message,” and the former Funk Volume rapper told us that he has too much respect for Dre to hate on him for having a ghostwriter.
