CHOMP 2.5 project is dropped off by Russ

The official website of Russ is currently offering his EP for purchase. This new album is titled CHOMP 2.5, and it includes six songs and production from Boi-1da, 9th Wonder, The Alchemist, Havoc, and Statik Selektah. The Atlanta-based star also gave fans a sneak peek at a short clip from his upcoming single “Buckle Up Freestyle,” as well as a preview of his upcoming single “Perfectionist,” in which he takes an introspective turn.

The latest installment of the Chomp series was released in mid-June, following 2020’s CHOMP, which was a five-song offering with contributions from Benny The Butcher, Ab-Soul, Busta Rhymes, DJ Premier, KXNG Crooked, and Black Thought. Russ continued his momentum in a year’s time with CHOMP 2, a collection of 14 tracks in which he collaborated with artists including Conway The Machine, Snoop Dogg, Westside Gunn, Wale, Jay Electronica, Joey BADA$$, and more.

Russ recently spoke to me about what it was like to get into music during a previous interview.

“When I was growing up, music was always around me as my dad would sing and there was always music being played in my house. However, he wasn’t a musician, so I’ve always felt like I was influenced by it and I was raised around it,” he explained. “Unfortunately, he didn’t pass on to me that particular skill, but his father, my grandfather, taught me how to play guitar, which opened up a door into the whole music world for me.”
