Metro Boomin Thinks Russ is “Whack” For Blaming Producers For The State of Hip Hop.

So New Jersey emcee and producer Russ was officially labeled “Whack” by Atlanta hitmaker, Metro Boomin. Over the weekend, tagged Russ and tweeted out a photo of himself holding a card that read “Russ Is Whack”. According to reports, the criticism comes from a 2017 VladTV interview where Russ told the interviewer he was dissatisfied with the current state of hip hop and blamed producers in the process saying “everything sounds the same, 140 BPM shit, it’s not the rapper’s fault.” In addition, Russ also stated:

“People blame the rappers for the state of hip-hop, but rappers are not making the music. You gotta blame the producers,” he said. “If a producer sends me a pack of 20 beats and they’re all wack and sound the same, I’m just fucked. I just have to pick the best of the worst. It’s not the rapper’s fault.”
