“This is 250+ songs & 11 projects in the making...the debut...There's Really A Wolf....5.5.17....preorder available now in my bio along with merch,” Russ wrote. “Shoutout to @kidsuper for the GENIUS designing of entire album aesthetic and to for the wild website and genius vibes....this is an unbelievably believable moment. From the first beat I made almost 11 years ago to the first song I put out 6 years was all just to get to this point. Thank you to all the fans. We're gonna wake up the world fully now.

Russ made a name for himself over the past few years by releasing songs through SoundCloud. While Russ has released projects in the past, his breakthrough run featured an approach of focusing on songs instead of mixtapes or EPs. Russ’ tracks have racked up millions of plays on SoundCloud and helped him build a devoted fan base.

With a loyal following behind Russ, the “For the Stunt” MC is ready to give his devotees a proper album. New listeners will also have an opportunity to jump in and see what the hype is all about.
