EDITORS’ NOTES

In the highly collaborative world of '10s rap, Russ is an unusual case: not only does he rap every bar and sing every hook on There’s Really a Wolf, but he produced the tracks too. Built on a string of hit singles (including “What They Want” and “Losin Control”), Wolf is an album of unusual range, mixing trap (“Do It Myself”) and Caribbean-flavored pop (“Don’t Lie”) with music that straddles the line between hip-hop and something like Coldplay (“Cherry Hill”)—a strong, unique vision.

About Russ

During the 2010s, Russ Vitale -- a rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer -- emerged from the Atlanta-area underground with dozens of independent singles and albums, all of which were made freely available as downloads. Inspired by 50 Cent and Eminem, as well as the classic rock he absorbed as a youngster, the New Jersey-born Vitale gradually learned to play several instruments, including guitar, which was taught to him by his father. After a short period of enrollment at Kennesaw State, Vitale established Diemon, a collective and label. His prolific output switched between swaggering modern hip-hop anthems and woozy R&B-oriented ballads, with relaxed melodic hooks the common element in both modes. He gradually gained a significant following through word of mouth and exposure from alternative weeklies and major rap publications. In 2015 and 2016, his career really picked up with cuts like "Losin Control," "What They Want," and "Pull the Trigger," which were among his most popular recordings to that point. Russ signed to Columbia Records in 2017, and released his major-label debut, There's Really a Wolf. The album featured the aforementioned singles and debuted in the top ten of the Billboard 200. As the year progressed, Vitale continued to release singles, including "Prosper," "Maybe," and "Lean on You." ~ Andy Kellman
