Russ is no longer part of the Columbia Records roster. The multi-platinum selling rapper/producer revealed he’s an independent artist again on Tuesday (June 30).

“Here to officially announce that I’m back 100% independent,” he declared on Instagram. “Y’all know what that means right.”

Russ also mocked some of the reactions to the post’s photo, having fun with claims of being in the Illuminati and detailing the actual backstory behind the picture.

“He’s in the Illuminati!!!” he wrote. “Omg!!! Occult!!! Wtf!!! get outta the YouTube wormhole. It’s a damn picture lol.”

Russ explained, “Mannion thought it would be dope to mimic the back cover of shake the snow globe. That’s all. Stop being weirdos.”

“I JUST PUT MY MOMMA IN A BENTLEY,” he noted.
