During his interview on The Breakfast Club, Russ didn’t reveal which rapper was involved in the incident, but video shared by DJ Akademiks shows that Smokepurpp was the artist attacked.
In the video, Russ and his crew can be seen jumping Smokepurpp while backstage at Splash Festival in Germany.
According to the caption provided by DJ Akademiks, the altercation came about after Smokepurpp referred to Russ as a “bitch” and used his sister as his Instagram profile photo.
Smokepurpp has since hopped on Instagram Live to share his side of the story.
“I go in the bathroom. I come out the bathroom. It’s like seven dudes there,” Smokepurpp said. “I ain’t never seen them in my life. They look like they with the fuck shit. I’m with the fuck shit, so I don’t give a fuck. I fought all seven niggas. I fought all of them. Russ did not do shit.”
While speaking with The Breakfast Club on Tuesday (September 11), Russ referred to both Smokepurpp and Yung Bans as “clowns” before speaking on the existence of the video.
“Those two kids, those are clowns, bro,” he said. “We caught one of them at a festival. That muthafucka knows what time it is …We got video too. I’ll leak the video of you getting your ass beat, so I suggest you tread carefully.”
Yung Bans also responded to the threat with more hostility.
Y’all know damn well Russ ain’t beat my ass.. FUCK RUSS https://t.co/XtYQhCneeU
