Whether it's on tracks or in an interview, Russ does not hold back. The self-made Atlanta artist recently sat down with VladTV, and reiterated some of the serious he's been spouting around town about industry politics.

Check out said clip of Russ below, and let us know what you think in the comments. Did Russ just put you on to new knowledge about the industry, or did you kind of already know about this?
