Russ: Music Game is Not What It Looks Like, “Popping” Artists Are Broke

VladTV recently sat down with New Jersey rapper and singer Russ, who has made waves with his single, “What They Want.” VladTV’s Mereb Gebremariam and Russ discuss the up-and-comer’s disillusionment with the music industry now that he has seen how it works from the inside. Russ admits that he felt mislead by the hip hop media, and that he wouldn’t want to meet some of his music idols because he’d likely be let down. According to Russ, “Learning about the music industry is like finding out Superman has a stunt double.”
