L.A. emcee Hopsin hit up Instagram today (Dec. 17) to let the world know that he was retiring from the mic and moving to Australia.

With bags in tow as he arrived at the airport, he stated, “I just wanted to take time out to say I appreciate all of u who have supported my music over these past few years. A Lot of u have told me stories about how I have changed your life. You too have changed mine in ways that u can never imagine. Unfortunately, tonight is the night that I am actually moving away to Australia. Over the past couple years I have come to conclusion that this profession just isn't for me, so I’m going to venture out into new areas of life…”

Hopefully this won't be the end of Hopsin’s mic dreams. In the meanwhile, check out a list of MCs who’ve called it quits but for some reason couldn’t stay away.
