Uprising New Jersey rapper Russ has been officially deemed as “Whack” from Atlanta hitmaker, Metro Boomin. Over the weekend, the superproducer tagged Russ and tweeted out a photo of himself holding a card that read “Russ Is Whack.” According to reports, the criticism stems from a 2017 VladTV interview where Russ told the interviewer he was dissatisfied with the current state of hip-hop and blaming producers in the process saying “everything sounds the same, 140 BPM shit, it’s not the rapper’s fault.” He also added:

“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.”

Meanwhile, shortly Metro Boomin’s tweets, Russ tweeted out a new video-single called “Sore Losers.” Which could be more or less a response track to Metro. Listen below and let us know what you think.
