Russ is known for his strong opinions. With the help of Charlamagne, he made a strong one about Post Malone on Brillant Idiots. [Jump to the one hour 29 minutes.]
"If you are white in Hip Hop you have to contribute in some sort of fashion," Russ explained. "You can't come into this from the vessel of Hip Hop and use the clothes and the language and the music and then go off and start doing something white."
Notorious Post Malone hater Charlamagne then interrupted and wondered if he was talking about Post Malone.
"Nah, I mean... That's a fair example because I do think that it's an interesting thing to look at from that lens of where you know you come in with braids and golds to the point people are thinking you're mixed and now, you know, you drink Bud Light and wear cowboy boots and stuff. Your music's phenomenal, I think Post Malone's music is phenomenal. But I think the caricature of how it came in compared to where it is now, seems a little, it's a little interesting ... it feels like you came in and used Hip Hop because it's the coolest genre to propel yourself to the forefront and you reverted back to who you really were.
CTG then added Post sh*ted on Hip Hop in the process.
