The smooth, slow jam styled track is his first release of the year and shows Russ is hell bent on keeping up the momentum that has propelled him to self-made rap stardom.
“Sideline Number” finds Russ explaining the way he works with women now that his career is taking off. With social media being so prevalent in today’s world, it’s no wonder he keeps things short and keeps texting to his sideline.
Aside from being a pretty light hearted and easy going track, it’s an impressive example of his flow. The benefit of having a great singing voice is Russ can switch up his cadence at the drop of a dime. From, singing, to rap-singing to straight rapping, he changes his style with an ease that gives added depth to his latest single.
Go ahead and give “Sideline Number” a play above, and keep your eyes and ears on EARMILK for all things Russ.
