Arguably the fastest growing artist of the past few months has released another song on his SoundCloud. Russ, who raps, sings, produces, and hails from Atlanta, Georgia has yet to let go of each fan's anticipation of his next track. After being inspired by artists like G-Unit and Eminem when he was 7 years old, he would grow up to release a mixtape titled Straight From Limbo in 2013 at the age of 21. Russ would later release two mixtapes in 2014, and many other singles. He began to garner a great deal of attention for his music in 2015, and shortly after many record labels came calling. He chose the label that he felt was polished and "understood his vision the most". Russ signed to Columbia Records on June 23rd of this year, nearly 10 months after his hit single "What They Want" was released. This single gained immense popularity with over 16 million plays on his SoundCloud and 17 million views on the official music video.
Another standout song from Russ's seemingly never ending SoundCloud library is "Yung God". This track would eventually grow and become the namesake for the tour he is currently on. From Canada to Florida, the Atlanta product has been selling out venues without openers. The performances he gives on this tour have been said to be nothing short of incredible and with the high growth rate of the Russ fan base, this is more than believable.
Russ is currently entering the second half of the Yung God Tour, and has not slowed down on releasing new music. Yesterday he released a song titled "Psycho (Pt. 2)" on SoundCloud and it already has been listened to over 140,000 times. This song features a side of Russ many of his fans are familiar with, but do not always get to hear. He sings on this self-produced track and opens up about a girl who has "got [him] going psycho". This song is the second part of the original track "Psycho" which he dropped in 2014 on his Pink Elephant project. The new edition of the song features a catchy, slowed down hook with two verses containing lyrics about a girl who seems to be driving him insane while he thinks about her as he drinks.
