Hot on the heels for one of the biggest breakthrough tracks of the year is ‘Gun Lean’, Lewisham-raised rapper Russ now drops the highly-anticipated remix featuring Taze, LD, Digga D, Ms. Banks and Lethal Bizzle.
Born in England and of Jamaican descent, the rapper just started his career in 2016, but the reaction to his two recent drops, ‘Lightwork Freestyle’ (over 1.9M views via YouTube) and ‘Gun Lean’ taking the UK underground by storm and the drill sound into the mainstream with 4.96M views on YouTube and counting – marks Russ out as truly one of the breakout names of the year.
Critical attention has also been swift: from the likes of Trench Magazine calling ‘Gun Lean’ “the track, the scene needs right now” and Noisey proclaiming that “Russ is here to stay, and to make you dance” to national publications The Guardian and Shortlist proclaiming an exciting new talent. Russ continues his phenomenal rise with a remix that is again taking the UK by storm, with over 300K views in less than 3 hours of it being released via GRM Daily.
Establishing himself as one of the UK Drill scene’s most important and influential emerging artists, Russ has already created a bonafide national dance move from this track and now allows a spectrum of talent to the party, finessing over a Gotcha produced beat that is still one of the coldest instrumentals of the year. Russ’s ‘One of a Kind’ moniker continues to ring true. With another truly pure viral connection, Russ joins the likes of Unknown T and Digdat as one of the most interesting and relevant ones to watch for 2019.
‘Gun Lean Remix’ is now available to stream on all major platforms, Check out the video.
