Russ is slowly but surely cultivating a massive cult following for himself with his consistent output of quality self-produced tracks. In a little over a year, he's increased his SoundCloud empire from under 1,000 followers to 145,000. DAMN. 

Russ spins a relatable story -- he produces all his own tracks, and he can rap and sing. He harps on themes of success, motivation, & confidence, and his music is a master class in self-reliance. It is truly an American story, and it is only a matter of time before Russ fully storms the globe.
