UTG PHOTOS: Hopsin (2/22/14)

Hopsin at Irving Plaza (D. SKANK PHOTOGRAPHY)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to photograph Hopsin at Irving Plaza in New York City on February 22, 2014.

Hopsin, Hopsin, Hopsin. I’ve seen a lot of crazy stuff go down at Irving Plaza. It’s one of those iconic New York City venues that although it doesn’t have the highest capacity still manages to book big names. I’ve seen Wiz Khalifa there for $10. I’ve seen the likes of Rise Against, Story of the Year, From First To Last, and countless more command that room. Hell, my father even saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers there once. The walls are littered with icons gracing the stage from Eric Clapton to Prince. That being said, I’ve never seen anyone crowd surf across a room like Hopsin did at this show.

Ever heard of the whole “walk on water,” concept? Yeah, Hopsin did that with people, and it was awesome. For the record, it’s also a bad idea to throw a bottle at him, because he WILL stop the show and call you out.

Although you won’t necessarily hear him on Z100, Hopsin has accrued a serious fan base in the United States and has easily accrued over 100 million views on his music videos.

He is currently on the road with DJ Hoppa and you can see the upcoming dates and photos from his NYC show below.
