(AllHipHop News) It appears the indie label Funk Volume may be going through some serious issues. Co-founder Hopsin posted a message on social media stating he and longtime business partner Damien Ritter have been at odds. The “FV Till I Die” rapper even suggested he was ready to part with the label if Ritter remains at the company.

I’ve been having issues with my business partner Damien Ritter. We started this whole FV s### years ago, but this man has all the sudden built up the courage to disrespect me and tell me I don’t work hard when I’ve made him Extremely wealthy over the years from my music. At this point, if he doesn’t leave funk volume, then I will. I’m putting it out there publicly so he knows that it’s f*ck him forever. If ur a real Hopsin fan, I need your support right now and I only hope u continue to strongly support me if/when I leave FV. My heart will always rep FV, but as of right now, it’s not home for me as long as Dame is apart of it.
Following Hopsin’s IG post, Funk Volume artist Jarren Benton also claimed he was ready to break from the label. In his own Instagram message, Benton said he is partnering with Master P and No Limit.
We all heard the news about [Hopsin] leaving [Funk Volume]. I’m also venturing out on my own with Master P to revamp No Limit records.
It should be noted that Hopsin claimed he was leaving the music industry in 2014 to live in Australia, but it turned out the announcement was just a publicity stunt to promote his Pound Syndrome album. Time will tell if the supposed collapse of Funk Volume is real or a troll job.
