People love to hate Russ. He is absolutely a controversial topic within the hip-hop community. He’s got many fans, but so many people love to say Russ sucks, he’s overrated, and he’s arrogant. Well maybe the last one is true, but I’m here to give my take on if Russ really deserves all the slander he receives.Image result for russ

Let me start off with why is Russ hated. Firstly what rubbed people the wrong way most, and what made him even more hated, was his stance on drug abuse. There isn’t anything wrong with being against drugs (as you should be), but he took the wrong approach toward the topic. It started when he wore a shirt that said “How much xans and lean do you have to do before you realize you’re a  f****** loser.”  He showed a lack of empathy toward the subject and even hated on Lil Peep who is loved but died because of drugs.

You should be against drugs, obviously. But blaming the person won’t help the person; they need support. So people and (myself included) were not happy about it. But besides that, why people get turned off by Russ is his large ego. He goes on twitter bashing people and tells everyone just how great he is, tells everyone who doesn’t like him that they are pretty much losers, and reminds us that he does everything on his own.

I understand why people hate Russ on a personal level, but I’m actually a fan of his music, even though he goes about things the wrong way. I don’t think Russ sucks.

I think he is really good, actually.

It may be easy to forget, but it is impressive that he does everything on his own. He’s a great producer, for one. He’s got killer hooks. His work contains substantial lyrics and additionally, by utilizing different sounds, and mixes and masters everything.

So, in my opinion, Russ doesn’t suck. But does he deserve all the slander toward him? In a way, yes. I think he’s very talented and has earned many platinum plaques and sells out entire arenas. But he needs to do a better job of controlling his ego instead of being so brash. Image result for russ
