Popular Rapper Who ‘Found God’ Says He ‘Fell Out’ in Profanity-Laced Video

By Heather Clark | christiannews.net

Hopsin-300x214Popular rapper who admitted to being worshiped by fans and once claimed to have ‘found God’ and professedly ‘hopped to Christianity’ has released a profanity-laced video claiming that he has fallen away from the faith.

“If Hell is truly Your pit of fire and I get thrown in it, I’ma probably regret the fact that I ever wrote this [expletive],” Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known to fans as “Hopsin,” raps in a new song called Ill Mind of Hopsin 7. “I hopped to Christianity so strongly, then I fell out. Now I’m avoiding questions like a scared dog with his tail down.”

In 2012, during an interview with HardKnock TV, Hopsin stated that he had turned to God and wanted to follow a path of holiness.

“I feel like God is just telling me what I need to do and He’s showing me the light,” he explained. “I’ve been working on my relationship with God … [and] it gets to a point where you don’t want to walk down the sinful road anymore.”

“I have found God and I see things differently,” Hopsin continued. “I feel like God is going, ‘No, don’t lose hope ’cause these humans are driven by the ways of the flesh and they are all brainwashed.’ God is saying, ‘Just stick with Me, Marcus, and everything is going to be good. Just follow My lead and everything is going to be good.’”

But he also commented on how he had been taken by the adoration of the youth as he performed on stage.

“They praised me,” Hopsin said. “They almost worshiped me, and it threw my mind off because I’ve never been in that type of situation or position in my whole entire life.”

He outlined that although he did not plan to perform Christian music, he wanted to help those that were lost find the pathway to happiness and success. His music, while proceeding to denounce drug use, immorality and other sins that entangle much of America’s youth, remained heavily laden with profanity and other explicit language.

In February, Hopsin shared on Twitter that being in the limelight had adversely affected his faith.

“Being so heavily involved with this industry made me lose touch with God,” he Tweeted. “I don’t even know if I believe in Him anymore.”

In his new music video, which has gone viral since its release last Friday—gaining over 2 million views, Hopsin expresses doubt in God, declaring, “I don’t know if You do or don’t exist; it’s driving me crazy.”

“My gut feeling says it’s all fake,” he raps. “I hate to say it, but [expletive] I’ve lost faith.”

“This isn’t a small phase, my perspective’s all changed,” Hopsin announces. “My thoughts just keep picking [expletive] apart all day and in my mind I make perfect sense.”

He states that he can’t believe the Bible anymore because of his conclusion that it was written by man. Hopsin screams at God that He can’t believe that He is real until He shows him the evidence, declaring that he is “done” with Christianity.

With over 27,000 YouTube comments over the new video, Ill Mind of Hopsin 7 has stirred significant controversy.

“He just changed my whole perspective on God,” one commenter wrote.

“Somebody tell me what has happened to him,” another lamented.

But others state that they lovingly fear for Hopsin, noting that the enemy is seeking his soul.

“I’m more scared for him if anything, because Jesus ain’t a joke, and Hop will have to answer for this,” one viewer wrote. “[W]e can’t forget that Satan is out here working, too. He don’t want Hop to be saved. Lord, have mercy.”

    I heard this song, this guy has been deceived. He really needs proper consolation. Jesus is so real he just needs to be shown how to have a real fulfilling relationship with him.

    Look in the mirror , then look outside at the creation, all
    of intelligent design. That should be proof enough. The
    earth was meant to be inhabited. Read the word itself.
    No man could have wrote this. Finally why would you
    need proof of a free gift? Thankfully for us and Marcus
    the FATHER is mercy. Bless is him that believes and
    and has not seen .Guard your kids.

    It appears that he, like many others are trying to have a relationship with God, without first coming to, or acknowledging Jesus the Messiah (John 14:6). So a true relationship with the Father is not complete. Even Cornelius the Roman Centurion who sent for Peter was told by the angel that there was something more that he needed to do (Acts 10), so at the preaching of Jesus, he and those that were with him received the gift of the Holy Ghost. Secondly, I have noticed that a lot of secular rappers/hip hop artist in their music make pleas to God to save them/help them; while at the same time they go on in the song to use profanity and other vulgarities, which do not in my opinion show a sincere heart. We cannot mix God with what we want to do! We must give up our agenda and dreams, to take on His. I pray that he and other rappers will allow the Lord to completely and genuinely change their lives and turn them to Christ.

    What is he going to do when his fans stop worshiping him and he becomes a has-been. For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God – John 12:43. God’s children are tried and tested. This guy is too weak to be a Christian.

  5. Marcia Judkins

    Sounds likes he needs some mature saints to help him restore his faith in Christ! We have all been there so we should understand. Instead of exploiting his pain, and frustration his fellow brothers in Christ should rush to his aid – This is a cry for help.

    This is why scripture talks about “in a multitude of councilors there is safety”. People who serve God outside of the fellowship of believers and spiritual leadership such as Pastors, ministers, elders walk in pride and arrogance of believing they don’t need anyone in their lives. If this young man really did give his life to the Lord, I believe and hope conviction of the Holy Spirit will draw him back to the Truth and to a strong bible teaching congregation. Also that he is humble enough to sit under strong loving leadership of the Word.

    We need to Pray for Him. I am Artist as well. Rap was the main thing I was doing and I have always been aware of characters used by demonic powers like Hopsin. We obviously need to pray for him (the prerequisite) but also this should serve as a reminder that you should be aware of the company you keep. Your surroundings will help keep you bound and in this case, his fans are keeping him bound, but mainly he kept himself down by announcing christianity and not fully understanding it. As for his fan saying “He just changed my whole perspective on God,” means this character wasn’t a true believer from the gate. Once you know the truth, ain’t no one shaking you from it. That’s like telling someone a dog is really a bird and then your like wow you changed my whole view on animals. nooooo buddy, you just don’t know what to believe standing for nothing and falling for any and everything. And who knows…that probably wasn’t some random fan, that was probably some person intentionally planting seeds of satanic will. God Bless

    This dude is walking a very dangerous tightrope and I pray that he is put in the path of true disciples of Christ to lead him to the Way. He’s so deceived and confused right now which has put his soul in a vulnerable position. I pray that his heart and spirit are renewed and awakened by the Holy Spirit in Jesus name.

  9. Anointed Pedigree

    I will never forget the saying “One of Satans greatest strategizes is to convince the world that he doesn’t exist. Now, he is trying to make people think God doesn’t exist. This young man needs Godly counsel and someone to re-direct him as the enemy is dealing with him through the power of the air. There is something inside this man that is common ground for Satan to deceive him. To go from believing in God to becoming an atheist? I pray the Lord remove those that shouldn’t be in his life away from him and position him around men of the true and living God that’s going to help him out of this.

    The Bible prophecies are being fulfilled. Watch and Pray
    And please start fasting. Where are the Prayer Warriors?
    It’s time to get our houses in order and STOP PLAYING CHURCH and crawl back to the old land Marks. A life of true
    Repentance Deliverance & Holiness. We have allowed too many worldly things in our WORSHIP SERVICES& Now this is what we are REAPING! Confused and lost to hip hop mess!
