"Shut the f--k up u a bitch."

Russ has made it a point to denounce pill and lean usage repeatedly in the past. He’s even donned a shirt that reads, “How Much Xans And Lean Do You Have To Do Before You Realize You’re A Fucking Loser.”

The New Jersey native took to Twitter ranting about the epidemic over the weekend, after the unfortunate passing of 21-year-old Lil Peep. The There’s Really a Wolf artist’s main issue is with people recording themselves doing drugs and posting it to social media in a glorifying manner.  

“Abusing Xanax and other pills drugs etc in private cuz your depressed/other mental issues is one thing(still not good)," Russ wrote, "constantly recording yourself doing drugs and putting up pics and videos of doing it is when you start CHOOSING to publicly glorify it and make it an image.”

SmokePurpp took issue with Russ’ stream of consciousness and fired back, calling him a “bitch” and telling him to “shut up” on Twitter for trying to make an example out of someone who died just days prior. It’s unclear if he was offended over believing Russ was directing shots at him, or he was genuinely defending Peep’s honor.

Earlier in the month, Wiz Khalifa took to Instagram with an anti-lean PSA calling the drug of choice “lame.”
