It seems our favorite artists are determined to start off the year strong. Russ has officially entered 2021 with his new record featuring Lil Baby titled “Ugly.”
The accompanying Edgar Esteves-directed video finds the Atlanta natives amid flashing colored lights, living luxuriously in a high-end strip club. We get to see an iced-out Russ and Lil Baby celebrating the finer things in life, as they eloquently boast about it in their charged lyrics.
“I’m getting money by the millions every month, my bro just told me that he’s good, he made a killin’ off the Runtz, I’m in Atlanta, but I’m bringing home Brazilians from the club, these women feel like I’m thе one, I got Sicilian in my blood…” Russ proclaims.
Despite the chaos last year, 2020 was a great run for Russ. Now an independent artist, the Atlanta-based star has been teasing his fans with staggered singles throughout last year, including “Give Up,” Throne Talks,” “Best on Earth,” “Take You Back” with Kehlani, “Paid Off,” “Sorry,” and “I Love Me.” He also surprised everyone with CHOMP, a five-track EP that saw additional features from DJ Premier, Busta Rhymes, Ab-Soul, Benny The Butcher, Black Thought, and KXNG Crooked.
The rapper also had a message for his followers, and non-followers alike after his release:
