On his latest album, Knock Madness, Hopsin kept the features to a minimum, rapping alongside labelmate Dizzy Wright and TechN9ne, with very few additional appearances, but there was one MC he would’ve liked to work with under the right circumstances: Macklemore. Hopsin explained that he’s a huge fan of the Seattle rapper because he’s so low on pretenses, but the timing just wasn’t on his side. “I wanted to work with Macklemore but by the time I had something ready it was too late,” Hopsin told MTV News. “The day I [wanted to reach out to him], he was on an MTV award show, walking up to accept the award as I’m sitting there texting him. It was horrible timing, he’s way too busy. Hear him explain in the video above.
