“Hooks, beats, and verses – every song I score a hat trick.” Multitalented producer and emcee Russ continues to see his stock rise and his fanbase grow, and he reflects on that on “MVP.” The accompanying visuals are hazy and dark, which proves to be a perfect fit for the slowed down vocals in the . . .
Russ is releasing his debut album, There’s Really A Wolf, next Friday, and he’s given us one more taste of what to expect with his latest release, “Cherry Hill.” It should come as no surprise that this is another self-produced gem. Additionally, he chose to give us another dose of his falsetto. Stream “Cherry Hill” . . .
For his latest magic trick, Russ drops a new gem of a record called “Keep On Goin” with Bas. If his verse is any indication, it would seem that the Dreamville emcee was more than motivated enough to step up to the plate for the appearance. The two emcees bring a different demeanor and flow . . .
I'm listening to handheld gps by @RexxLifeRaj — Russ (@russdiemon) December 26, 2016 If you follow Russ on social media, you might have seen this one coming. He features on Rexx Life Raj‘s smooth new drop, “Waiting For You.” The two use melodic deliveries that fit together quite well, all things considered. Stream “waiting For . . .
“Ain’t no destination, the journey is everything…” He can sing, but Russ sticks to the bars on his latest drop, “The Journey.” The self-produced drop features a gorgeous soul sample and confident delivery from the Atlanta native. There’s no chorus this time around, but Russ keeps things interesting by switching the flow up throughout. Stream . . .
Russ dropped another self-produced track on SoundCloud entitled “Used To You”. Russ starts the track off with some gentle singing. He allows himself to be vulnerable and expresses his desire to cultivate something real. Then, in the middle, he switches it up. He calls out the lady of interest for deceiving him. It surprised me . . .
Russ has been doing tons of shows, which is not a surprise, given his huge jump in popularity over the past few months. He takes some time to vacation and relax with his mother in his new video for “Manifest.” This is one of his more relaxing songs, so it makes sense that the video . . .
Russ continues his prolific stream with another self-produced joint called “Sideline Number.” This one finds the Atlanta native musing about a new romantic acquaintance he’s still feeling out. He outlines the rules to his game, as both a vocalist and emcee. Stream “Sideline Number” below.
Admittedly, I missed Russ‘s latest release, “Aint Nobody Taking My Baby,” in the midst of the holiday season. Russ has a lot of songs that focus on interactions with the women in his life, but this song is more focused on resolution than the conflict itself. Stream “Aint Nobody Taking My Baby” below.
Russ has been living a much different life due to his quick ascent in the game, but he gets back to the basics with “Fallin Too.” He vents about how people are treating him differently, as his finances have changed so much. I can’t say that I can personally relate Stream “Fallin Too” below.
“I was broke a year ago, I worked for this.” Russ has never been one to make his mentality about the support he’s receiving hard to gauge, which has made his recent come-up that much more evident. In his new video for “For The Stunt,” we see the Atlanta native riding around his old neighborhood . . .
It’s crazy to see how Russ‘s popularity continues to grow. He’s currently on a nationwide tour, but found time to release a new joint called “Psycho Pt 2” that plays off of a few common themes we’ve come to expect from him – women with emotional issues and their effect on his life. Stream “Psycho . . .
With all the work Russ has been putting in this year alone, be it song releases or preparing for the nationwide tour he’s about to kick off in a few days, it’s no wonder he’s saying what he’s saying in his latest release “Overdue.” The Atlanta singer/rapper put out another self-produced track speaking on the . . .
“Look who’s laughing now, they always used to laugh.” If his music is any indication, Russ intends to live a life full of success that can inspire many people. With his latest self-produced drop, “Look,” the Atlanta-based emcee and producer continues to let his confidence bubble through. Stream “Look” below.
“I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m gone. Look where you still is. I know you feel this.” Russ has been working hard on his craft for years, and he’s not afraid to say farewell to the people that he’s left behind on his latest release, “Gone.” The self-produced effort is full of the combination of focus . . .
