Editors' Notes When Russ appeared on the rap scene out of New Jersey with a run of mixtapes that started in 2011, he was praised for his self-crafted sound. He produces all his own beats and finds pockets of sonic warmth for his melodic flows, whatever shape they take; he fills out the R&B piano-drenched sound of “Serious” as easily as he floats through the spacious and airy percussion of “Losin Control”. He can go a bit heavier (crank up the slapping trap beat and boastful bars on “Too Many”), but Russ' comfort zone seems to be more introspective and romantic, shown on “Wife You Up”, with a retro soul vibe and the gentle lyricism to match.
