Hopsin Wants To Leave Funk Volume Due To Co-Founder Damien Ritter


Hopsin calls Damien Ritter the “death of Funk Volume.”

In 2009, Hopsin founded the independent label Funk Volume along with Damien Ritter, the older brother of SwiZz, the label’s first signee (after Hopsin). Today, Hop has admitted he’s “been having issues” with Funk Volume’s co-founder and that he plans to leave the label if Ritter doesn’t first — “it’s fuck him forever.” 

“We started this whole FV shit years ago, but this man has all the sudden built the courage to disrespect me and tell me I don’t work hard when I’ve made him extremely wealthy over the years from my music,” Hopsin wrote on Instagram in regard to his conflict with Ritter.

He went on to ask his fans to keep supporting him should he decide to leave his longtime label. He concluded his post by writing, “My heart will always rep FV, but as of right now, it’s not home for me as long as Dame is apart of it.” 

Hopsin also lashed out at Ritter in a series of Facebook posts. See below.

Fuck Damien Ritter. This man is the death of funk volume.

Some people are just too difficult to work with. I may possibly be walking away from Funk Volume soon, unless Damien Ritter decides to leave.
