Russ is one of the most successful independent artists in the music industry today. Once signed to Columbia Records, his 4-year deal ended in 2020. Since then, he has amassed a massive following and continues to attract new fans with his unique style and lyrical prowess. Some of his greatest hits include “What They Want”, “Losin Control”, and recently, he released a snippet of a new track he is currently working on as recently as 8 hours ago, which has fans hounding for more. Some fans are even asking for an “open verse challenge” from the artist for the song, which Russ has done in the past.
One example of Russ doing an “open verse challenge” was for his song “Handsomer” which ended up featuring “Kaitlynraps” an upcoming female artist in the Hip-Hop scene. Russ has always been known for being independent himself and giving free game to other and comers. This is a testament to Russ’s ability to connect with his fans and build a loyal following.
Russ has also made history with his live performances. He recently performed for the first time in India, which was a massive success. He was also the first solo rapper to ever perform in front of The Great Pyramids of Egypt, which is arguably an even greater feat than that of performing at the Super Bowl which we are calling it today that one day he will reach that accolade as well.
Russ’s success as an artist has inspired many other musicians to follow in his footsteps. He has also proven that it is possible to maintain creative control over your music while still achieving mainstream success.
