Not every story in the music industry is of overnight success, and with rapper, singer-songwriter and record producer Russ, it's years of hard graft that have got him where he is today. Finding his love of hip hop as a teenager, Russ put out his first track aged just 18, and over several years built a hefty online following on SoundCloud. In 2011, he appeared on MTV alongside Bugus, and he capitalised on his first taste of fame by releasing an incredible 11 albums and 87 singles consecutively through SoundCloud over the next three years, before upping the ante even further and releasing a song a week. Amongst the tracks he released, "Prosper", "Maybe" and "Lean On You"caught the attention of Capitol Records, who signed him to their label in 2016. The following year, he released his major-label debut, There's Really a Wolf, debuting at number seven on the US Billboard 200 and number four on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. He found further success with his 2018 follow-up Zoo, which peaked at number four on the Billboard 200 and number two on the Billboard 200.
