Hip-hop artist Hopsin has threatened to leave his label, Funk Volume, citing trouble with the label’s co-founder Damien Ritter.
In a series of aggressive posts to social media, Hopsin has aired his dirty laundry, laying out his complaints against Ritter, whom he launched Funk Volume with in 2009.
“Fuck Damien Ritter. This man is the death of Funk Volume,” he posted to Facebook.
I’ve been having issues with my business partner Damien Ritter. We started this whole FV shit years ago, but this man has all the sudden built up 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. At this point, if he doesn’t leave funk volume, then I will. I’m putting it out there publicly so he knows that it’s fuck him forever. If ur a real Hopsin fan, I need your support right now and I only hope u continue to strongly support me if/when I leave FV. 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.
According to XXL, the beef was kickstarted by Ritter accusing Hopsin of not putting enough effort into the label, which currently boatss a roster including Dizzy Wright, SwizZz, DJ Hoppa and Jarren Benton.
