It was pretty good though I don't exactly agree with him... Did he offer what life is? If he did I didn't hear it, he only said what HE thinks life isn't... Only bringing people down.

In my opinion life is exactly what YOU want it to be! If you want to spend it getting drunk or getting laid or anything else for that matter it is your choice and that is fine... Don't be told what your life should be! Just do what YOU feel is right. That's all there is to it in my opinion.

Right, gonna take my kids down the park, have fun...

I had a strange feeling that Hopsin was going to be covered in this thread... here's another video that addresses the world we live in, fairly accurately...

Gander propaganda, yeah the planet's got a lot of spin
Coming out of pocket for a profit: can you spot a cent?
The products they shopping got us hooting and hollering
Dollars hypnotic, it got us using Klonopin
Loosen up stupid, should dry, drinking some water then
Fool be Duke Nukem, the writing is on the wall again
Stall them man, get up off the ground just to fall again
All events planned, after all, Ash is all I am
Hard to plant in sand, pass it on, telling all your friends
We can be the tallest if we wanted, but it all depends on us

Another favorite of mine...

I have no idea why we ended up here
Trying to retrace my steps but i reach nowhere
About to reach the maximum my bare feet can bear
Alone, you need a good friend in these streets out here
But the street sweepers keep em empty
Not clean but nothing living that could tempt me or set free
From myself or to protect me break out from liberal individual prision
Living in a cynical city called
Break down the walls of jericho it´s really cold
Consisting of concrete metal glass garbage upper
Lower middle class garbage
Walk around where everyone is considered a target
Everyone and everything is considered a product
People being sold in grey zones and black markets
Empty out your heart and souls empty out your pockets
And this was supposed to be a love song

Something along the same lines...

From the song "Wings" by Macklemore

Look at me, look at me, I'm a cool kid
I'm an individual, yea, but I'm part of a movement
My movement told me be a consumer and I consumed it
They told me to just do it, I listened to what that swoosh said
Look at what that swoosh did
See it consumed my thoughts
Are you stupid, don't crease 'em, just leave 'em in that box
Strangled by these laces, laces I can barely talk
That's my air bubble and I'm lost, if it pops
We are what we wear, we wear what we are
But see I look inside the mirror and think Phil Knight tricked us all
Will I stand for change, or stay in my box
These Nikes help me define me, and I'm trying to take mine, off

my favorite comes from Edan's "Freestyle" which is more about EVERYTHING as a whole, in which he finishes with:

the caterer, the Darth Vader with the crossfader
you should never be afraid of the harm from armed laborers
we stay patient as we lay the foundation
in a simple composition for the future generations

My own, little rap/poem or what have you... about everything surrounding us now:

through the eloquence, upon recognition of the Omnibenevolence graphing temperaments//
derivatives of gods means of relevance//
by means of eternal recurrences implied responsibilities require no assurances
so haters of the greater go and procure their insurances
being non-linear we race the integers, with fractal implications
inevitably await debates and hate between the nations for the love of our creation,
we remotely mold the future //
as refused stones, used to compose the main feature//

Hopsin is one crazy dude, I like what some of his messages are... his hate for Ruthless Records is a little over the line... he should learn how to read contracts, and understand his position when he allows others to assume responsibilities of furthering his career. He's not as smart as he wants to be, that's his problem... although, I'd say he understands a lot.
