Russ drops the official video for "The Game."
Russ has been on a streak ever since his debut album dropped. Once he made his formal entry into hip hop, he made sure his presence was felt and that it wasn't going anywhere any time soon. Over the past few weeks, the rapper has been marking some big accomplishments while simultaneously dropping loose singles. In late August, he dropped the single "The Game" which was met with some good reception among his fans. Today, he unleashes the video for the song.
For the majority of the summer, Russ has been taking his There's Really A Wolf project on the road with him. While he's been playing major festivals and big shows, Russ gives us a closer look at the life he's been living in his latest video. The video features footage of him kickin' it backstage with his team to shots of him performing across the globe. Russ and his crew are also seen flexing from the inside of their tour van to a Rolls Royce Phantom. The video isn't fueled with crazy, mind-blowing effects but it didn't need to be. The video does an exceptional job at showcasing Russ' recent success and the journey that he's been on.
Russ hasn't stopped working since the release of his debut album. Since it's release in May, the album went gold and two singles off of the project have gone platinum as well. It's clear that the amount of work he put in while on the road has helped his music reach such success.
"The Game" video serves as his fifth release in less than a week. Last week, he dropped four singles day after day through his Soundcloud. The songs were collaborations that he worked on with the legendary Scott Storch. Earlier in the year, footage surfaced of Russ and Scott Storch in the studio. Many assumed they probably worked on one or two songs however, it turned out to be a whole slew of them.
