Russ has responded to Metro Boomin dissing him over three years ago in a recent interview with The Breakfast Club.
“The fact that I’ve been able to be as successful as I am with — f*ck a co-sign — the opposite of a co-sign… a lot of people in the industry, there was a time when it was like, ‘We don’t f*ck with you.’ There’s our co-sign, ‘we don’t like you, we don’t f*ck with you, you’re wack,'” he said.
The tweet is still up BTW 😩 pic.twitter.com/rnD8lhsCuj

“You got Metro Boomin, one of the biggest producers who I’ve never even met posting something saying, ‘Russ is whack.'” I’m not even talking about the music, just his spirit… 80,000 retweets. It’s like, dawg, what? That added onto [the “F*ck Russ” campaign] and, you know, Lil Pump saying, ‘Me and J. Cole are cool now, it’s F*ck Russ.’ It’s like, what the fuck did I do to y’all? Shut the f*ck up. You’re too grown — not Lil Pump — but, like, Metro, you’re too grown to be doing weird sh*t like that.”
He continued, “I’ve never met him, never had a conversation. So I just look at sh*t like that and I’m like, ‘You’re a weirdo’ because at the end of the day, as a grown man who’s in this sh*t and understands that we’re all up against obstacles of even, like, self-doubt and trying to tackle this industry and we’re already dealing with bullshit from the outside.”
