Russ aversion to drug use, or rather its promotion in hip hop is a well-known commodity. His outspokenness on the issue has made him a bit pariah within the industry. The latest rapper to face criticism from Russ is Fat Nick. The Florida rapper stands accused “exploit(ing) drug addiction for money” as he stated on Twitter in a message guide by the @ symbol.
Fat Nick was responding to a Tweet Russ had administered several minutes before, where he defended his righteous cause. Fat Nicki insisted that Russ was guilty throwing dirt “on his dead homie” Lil Peep, considering the reactionary timing his statements–old. In response, Russ brushed f the need for sensitivity in the matter, in stating that Fat Nick was “part the problem NOT the solution,” out which was born a full-blown argument.
Russ kept drawing back to Fat Nick’s “In My Cup” video as a model his hypocrisy. The video portrays Fat Nick as a propagator drug culture, whether he knows it or not. That’s only Russ’ take on the situation. There are never-the-less many nuances he has yet to explore within the character limitations Twitter.
