Russ equates his catalog to his soul
Independent rapper Russ linked up with producer Boi-1-Da for his latest single, “Too Much” released on Friday (December 9). On the first verse, the New Jersey native claimed that he rejected a deal to sell his catalog for $50M. “$50 million for the catalog, I turnt down (Facts) / I'm makin' money every second, you should learn how,” he spits.
Before he dropped the gem, the rapper shared a snippet of the song on TikTok and further explained why he refused to sell his catalog. “They offered me $50,000,000 for my catalogue and I turned it down because my soul is not for sale,” he wrote in the caption.
Popular producer Sonny Digital saw the post on RapTV and shared his thoughts, denouncing the idea that one's catalog is their soul. “My catalog is not my soul,” he wrote.
