Russ is looking to expand his one-man lyrical domain with “real” rappers in near future. He shared his thoughts on the Ebro Darden‘s show Rap Life Radio for Apple Music 1.
On Friday Dec. 10,Russ opened up about his recent CHOMP 2 album and explained his intentions in encouraging real rappers to rap again. He wants to cultivate a home where real rappers can do their thing.
“I’m trying to just cultivate a home for people who want to rap and just go crazy. Not any of this eight bars and then bridge, nah, rap for a minute and a half. And then you rap for a minute and a half and we’ll put a little hook in between just to get us through the sh*t, and let’s keep it pushing. I’m trying to create that home because I know I’m a fan of that style of rap. You feel me? And I wish more artists who can rap and really go, would make these projects… Would do a CHOMP-like series, because I still like hearing rappers just rap on a beat for two and a half minutes, eight songs in a row. I still like that.”
Russ raps for a minute and a half across all his 14- tracks thriving on his latest album. He took lyrical support from rappers such as Snoop Dog, Jay Electronica, Styles P, Westside Gunn, Big Sean, Wale and Joey Bada$$ and many more.
After releasing his album on Friday, Russ paid a visit to Justin Credible at Power 106 FM’s L.A. Leakers show to flaunt his jaw-dropping freestyle skills by dropping rapid-fire bars.
Justin posted a clip of Russ’s freestyle on his Instagram. He wrote under the post, “Russ wanted to close out the year w/ some BIG BARS,” You can check out the post below.
