    Russ Defends Selling Out Arenas and Calls Out Industry Practices

    Russ, the Atlanta MC, has been making waves in the music industry not just with his music, but also with his outspoken views on the current state of the industry. Recently, he took to social media to celebrate the success of his sold-out concert at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, Los Angeles.

    However, a fan called him out for allegedly exaggerating the size of the crowd in a video he posted. Russ didn’t hold back in his response, explaining that he prefers to have a packed floor at his shows, which may leave some space at the back due to safety regulations.

    This incident led Russ to further criticize the music industry, claiming that some artists fake their streams to boost their numbers. He even joked about doing the same, highlighting the cutthroat nature of the business.

    Moreover, Russ has also accused Billboard and Luminate of cheating him out of sales from his latest album, “Santiago.” He believes that major labels are inflating their numbers with fake streams, pointing to a larger issue within the industry.

    Despite the controversies surrounding him, Russ continues to find success in the live space, selling out arenas and proving his critics wrong. His candid and unfiltered approach to addressing industry issues has garnered attention and sparked conversations about the authenticity of success in the music world.
