Part of being in the Hip Hop Community means showing off here and there, earning the right to brag for having a successful career. Many artists have taken to asserting their dominance by flexing their finances and Russ is no exception.

Russ is known for discussing the benefits of an independent catalog. It's no secret that the once-self-declared "SoundCloud King" has been a vocal advocate of retaining ownership over one's master recordings, shirking the major-label route and profiting as a result.

As such, Russ has taken to social media to share additional information on his own journey, and sharing encouragement with other young artists to follow his lead for a variety of reasons. "Ever since shit started 'working' for me with this music shit I often think about 'damn, what if I woulda stopped after those 11 mixtapes?'" he reflects. "Can't lose if you don't quit. If it's your truth, keep goin regardless of wtf people are sayin." He also shows off a total earning of ten million dollars, revealing a surprising fact about the gargantuan sum.
