Russ Says No Artist Is Blackballed


Russ Says Artists Can’t Be Blackballed: “Fans Will Listen To Your Music Or They Won’t”

After DaBaby claimed he had been blackballed, Russ says that he doesn’t believe this to be the case. He says if a fan wants to play your music, they’ll play it regardless.

“I just wanna give my two cents on something in my industry. No artist is blackballed,” Russ wrote.

“Unless they cut off your Wi-Fi, remove your social media accounts and take your music off all the streaming platforms, you are not blackballed. If you are famous and can still tell your fans, ‘hey I’m putting out music,’ then you’re not blackballed.”

DaBaby latest album sold less than 18k units. His last album moved more than 120k.

After DaBaby claimed he had been blackballed, DJ Akademiks agreed.

“Da Baby last project in 2020 ‘Blame it on Baby’ sold 124K first week. His new project after being blackballed by Ebro, Apple Music is scheduled to do less than 20K. Now yall understand my Ebro convo…. DSPs control who is hot and who is not. Fall out of favor with them.. UR DONE,” Ak tweeted.

In response, Ebro wrote, “Funny shit, when artists get hot it is always how they built this themselves and the fans. When shit slows down it is radio, DJs, platforms and the label. #BlameEbro A is back for a whole new generation.”
