Russ's 2017 album There's Really A Wolf went platinum earlier this year.

When it did, it became the first rap album to ever to hit the million sales mark without any features and with only self-production. Russ was also the only executive producer on the project.

It's an achievement Russ stunted on his IG page.

As you can see, Mr. No-Features J. Cole came close to doing the same thing with his latest album KOD, but had production help on three of project's 12 tracks.

Russ rubs a lot of people the wrong way with his self-righteous preening. (Among other things, he's blamed producers for ruining rap). But there's no denying that's a pretty impressive feat.
