Lewisham newcomer Russ drops the hotly anticipated video for one of the most recognisable drill songs of the winter with and indeed this year – the underground smash “Gun Lean“.
As one of the UK Drill scene’s most characterful artists coming through, Russ has already created a bonafide national dance move from this track. The icy instrumental balanced with Russ’ infectious wordplay already made this track light up the scene when it first surfaced and now in good spirits, Russ brings all his people in for a fun video which brings the song to life.
Speaking about his own path so far, the rapper admirably shared: “I started just on hood riddims, you know, not taking it seriously. Then after my sister died, I decided to do it properly out of respect to her.”
Russ only started his career last year but with his “Lightwork Freestyle” on Press Play clocking over 1.6M views and “Gun Lean” doing sensational rounds, the case for Russ being one of the breakout names of the year is clear. With this kind of pure viral connection, Russ joins the likes of Unknown T and Digdat as a serious one to watch in 2019.
