UPDATE 08/09/16: Hopsin has made a statement via social media, calling the assault case against him “exaggerated bullshit” and revealing that he hasn’t been banned from Australia.
Rapper Hopsin (real name Marcus Jamal Hopson) was allegedly jailed in Australia last night, and says he could now be banned from the country.
The American MC posted to his social media accounts yesterday saying, “Sydney! What’s going down tonight? I’m bored.” Then, this morning, he announced that he’d just gotten out of jail and was about to be banned from Australia.
Hopsin hasn’t disclosed exactly what landed him in trouble, but he has published an emotional Instagram post (below) saying, “Shit ain’t really that pretty over here at all… I can’t see myself ever doing it, but I actually wanna literally die. Like literally.
“This may be a moment that I look back on and laugh, but right now, I’m not laughing. What would make a 31 year old man cry on a daily basis? Being rich as hell, successful with no love around him.”
In a statement to Music Feeds, New South Wales Police say officers from Sydney City Local Area Command arrested a 31-year-old man at a hotel in Sydney at around 10:45pm last night, 5th September 2016, but are not able to confirm the man’s identity.
“He was taken to Sydney City Police Station where he was interviewed and charged with common assault. He was given conditional bail and will appear in the Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday 7 September 2016,” police say.
Music Feeds has contacted Hopsin and his management for comment.

Just got out of FUCKin jail…over some total bullshit. They’re really bout to ban me from Australia now this shit fuckin sucks man. I hesitate to post whats really goin down in my life, so I hide it with my cool pictures. Shit ain’t really that pretty over here at all. You guys may ask “why take it to social media”, but youguys are all I got. Since 14 I slaved away for the music and fan base and now music is all I have. That’s just the cards I was dealt. I fell into a dark hole that I haven’t been able to get out of. Im a master at glorifying my pain, but pain isn’t never good. Im only writing this right now because it’s making me feel better for the time being. Maybe it is so I can get sorrow. I don’t know. I can’t see myself ever doing it, but I actually wanna literally die. Like literally. My funeral would be a blessing for me right now. I’m the emotional rapper, I know. Make fun of me. Do as you please. I can’t change the way I am. This may be a moment that I look back on and laugh, but right now, I’m not laughing. What would make a 31 year old man cry on a daily basis? Being rich as hell, successful with no love around him. that’s a first class ticket on air robin Williams. I ain’t goin nowhere tho. I might have to disappear soon and take some time to myself.
Sydney! What's going down tonight? I'm bored https://t.co/gr3mSWvyTw
