To begin with, he has moved frequently with his family due to the work of his father. So, he lived briefly in New York, North Carolina and Kentucky, until his family acquired a permanent residence in Rosswell, Georgia. He began writing rap texts at the age of seven, and composed music at the age of 14, and subsequently recorded his first song when he was 18. Russ has iris heterochromism, which gives him two different eye colours and thus a special trademark – his left eye is dark, the right one light brown.
Concerning his professional career, at the age of 22 he decided to invest in the Sound Cloud online audio distribution platform. He was successful with some songs such as “Willy Wonka” (2015) and “Too Many” (2015), and subsequently published a new song almost every week, so the number of subscribers, viewers and listeners quickly exceeded 200,000 and 20 million respectively views by the end of 2015; five of his compositions have even exceeded one million listeners. In 2016, Russ signed a contract with Columbia Records, and next single “What They Want” (2016) made it to 83rd on the US Billboard Hot 100, and brought him to the attention of the general public. He then released the single “Losin Control” (2016), which rose to 63rd on the US Billboard Hot 100, his best ranking up until now. Concurrently with the release of his album, he announced via Twitter his “The Wake Up” tour, which took place from 16th May to 5th August 2017. At the end of the summer 2017, it was announced that his album “There’s Really a Wolf” had reached gold status – it is worth mentioning the fact that he also produced the above mentioned album on his own. In 2017, he was nominated for Woodie Award.
Regarding his musical style, his early inspirations included G-Unit, 50 Cent and Eminem. Russ writes, produces and mixes his own songs, and is responsible for mastering too, and also serves as a sound engineer.
