Songs by Russ

Russell Vitale (born September 26, 1992), known by his stage name, Russ, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is known for his singles "What They Want" and "Losin Control", which peaked respectively at number 83 and 63 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Outside of his solo music, he is part of the Diemon Crew, a rap group. His debut Columbia studio album There's Really a Wolf was released on May 5, 2017, and was certified Platinum on April 18, 2018.

Russ was born on September 26, 1992 in Secaucus, New Jersey. He is of Sicilian descent. He has also lived in North Carolina and Kentucky, due to his father having to constantly relocate due to his career, before his family found a permanent home in Georgia. He started writing raps in his notebook at seven years old and started making beats when he was 14. He recorded his first song at 18 years old.

From December 2011 to August 2014, Russ released 11 albums and 87 singles consecutively; all free of charge through Soundcloud. In 2016, Russ partnered with Columbia Records. He later released the single "What They Want", which peaked at number 83 on the US Billboard Hot 100. He then released another single "Losin Control", which peaked at number 62 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and is currently his highest charting single.
br>On May 5, 2017, Russ released his first Columbia studio album There's Really a Wolf which debuted at number seven on the US Billboard 200 and number four on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. On April 18, 2018, the album was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for combined sales and album-equivalent units of over 1,000,000 units in the United States. Prior to releasing his album, Russ announced on his Twitter account that he would be headlining his own tour, The Wake Up Tour, from May 16 to August 5, 2017.

His early inspirations were G-Unit, 50 Cent and Eminem. He produced beats for around 6 years before he attempted to record himself rapping.
Russ is known for his songs being produced, mixed, mastered, engineered, written, and performed by himself. Most of his songs contain hip hop and R&B elements, while combining rapping and singing on the hook. His style has been described by Uproxx as a "raspy, hardbody rap flow, and lilting, almost drunken singing voice".

Russ has two different eye colors, a condition known as heterochromia; his left eye is dark-brown and his right is light-brown.

In September 2017, Russ posted a picture of him wearing a t-shirt advocating an anti-drug stance on Twitter. The shirt, reading "How much Xans and Lean do you have to do before you realize you're a fucking loser", was panned and became a meme critiquing Russ.

Russ performed at Splash! Festival in Germany in July 2018. According to a Breakfast Club interview in September 2018, Russ and his entourage attacked a rapper who had been insulting Russ on social media. The following day, a video was leaked showing Russ' entourage attacking rapper Smokepurpp. Russ said that attack was due to Smokepurpp's constant attempts at a feud with him through saying "Fuck Russ" on Twitter and Smokepurpp posting images of Russ' sister.

Several days following the video leak showing the attack, Adam Grandmaison, better known as Adam22, a well known figure in the hip-hop community for his No Jumper podcast, spoke out on Twitter saying that Russ' friends attacked him.
