Amid Kanye West’s public war against Universal Music Group with the plan of buying back his masters, Russ weighed in on the conversation on Twitter.

Before clarifying that he owns his masters and was merely providing suggestions for other artists, Russ gave props to Nipsey Hussle, stating, ” He was really changing the game and movin’ the sh*t forward. He sold mixtapes for $100 and $1000 and people bought them. What brings you more value? A Balenciaga shoe or music.” Russ also tweeted Kanye a recent video he did with Steve Stoute where they discussed what would happen if Drake went independent.
