Russ Gets Slammed For His Comments About Producers

“Whack in spirit…”

New Jersey rapper/producer/writer/engineer/etc…, Russ, has managed to create quite a lane for himself, as his debut album There’s Really A Wolf, recently went platinum. Russ is talented in his musical abilities and his ability to rub people the wrong way, and when an old (January 2017) Vlad TV interview popped up producers were rubbed the wrong way.

In the interview below, Russ is critical of the current health of rap and stressed his belief that rappers were not to blame for what he perceived to be the issues facing the scene.

After seeing the interview for the first time, Metro Boomin came to the defense of his fellow producers and posted the following tweets.

Producer Southside was not feeling Russ’ recent comments about producers alleged role in the decline of hip hop’s quality. Before he went in on the rapper, he let it known that he did think his music was dope. However, he let it be known that Russ doesn’t have any authority to make comments like that.

Zaytoven seems to have taken a different approach to his criticism of Russ. He’s choosing to challenge his statements, by releasing an album so dope that Russ will have no choice but to admit that it’s flames.

Other producers also shared their thoughts on Twitter,

Since they were Russ’ original comments it’s only right that he gets the last say.

There, it’s settled.
