    I don't think some people understand the music industry and what it means to be an independent artist. Russ is signed to Columbia, Nipsey was signed to Atlantic. Tech N9ne is signed to interscope. Cordae is Atlantic. Master P is signed to Priority Records.
    These artists that I mentioned above are indeed independent artists, because they owns all the rights to their music, even though they are signed to record label. They are just blessed with a really good record deal. And of course there's other artists who got the slave contract and making music under a really bad contract. Record labels are distributors. If you want to be nation wide, you are going to need distributors. Otherwise you are just gonna be locally known, no matter how good of a rapper u are. Remember is not what u know, it's who u know.

            What's up with Russ' eye? One looks black and the other is lighter; kinda strange. Regardless, he was talking the realness still 👌🏾 Conceited for good reason.

                                  Russ is a great example of showcasing that he was the only independent in that room. Crazy inspiring.

                                                    The people who hate Russ are the same losers who never listened to their parents and failed at life. Be careful who you follow. Just because everyone is on the same train doesn't mean it's taking them to the right place.

                                                                                      These artists that I mentioned above are indeed independent artists, because they owns all the rights to their music, even though they are signed to record label. They are just blessed with a really good record deal. And of course there's other artists who got the slave contract and making music under a really bad contract.
