Russ stirred up a bit of controversy over the weekend after posting an image of himself clad in a black anti-drug t-shirt, prompting fans to quickly address the rapper's clothing choice. Russ defended his custom anti-drug T-shirt in a series of tweets and called out hip-hop for glamorizing drug abuse, criticizing rappers for the messages their lyrics are sending to their fan bases.
Russ tweeted "After show. Message." along with a photo of the controversial shirt that read, "How Much Xans and Lean Do You Have To Do Before You Realize You're A Fucking Loser?" One user responded by telling the rapper that his shirt was "wack" and he should've researched the topic further before blaming others.
"If I stopped ONE kid from abusing xans or lean, mission accomplished..better than getting ONE kid to try that shit. Period." Russ wrote in one tweet as his' t-shirt garnered hundreds of replies. "Doing xanax and lean cuz your favorite rapper makes it sound cool is all fun and games till your impressionable ass gets addicted. Stop."
