Russ takes a lot of heat for calling himself a producer-engineer-songwriter-rapper, but he really is, and now he’s gone platinum;all by himself. Russ is the first artist in hip-hop, who’s album There’s Really A Wolf, went platinum with no features and no production on the entire album. Russ shared the news on his Instagram on Monday. When most people heard the news they were confused, because well—what about J. Cole? Cole also went platinum with no features , but he only did about 75% of the production for his KOD album as well as Forest Hills Drive, but not the entire albums. That’s still HUGE, but Russ is really the first to do it. Congrats to him! Check out his IG post about the good news and his recent interview, with Power 106’s The Cruz Show below:
