Russ - Devil in Her Heart

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Russ
Album:

Last Friday, we heard DIEMON Records emcee/producer Russ bid a treacherous woman adieu on Goodbye, a reader-approved cut off his forthcoming mixtape. Fast-forward three days, and his anger has faded into sorrow and regret. On the newly-released Devil in Her Heart, the artist offers a more melancholy, less vituperative perspective on his last relationship, flowing over his own stark, sample-laced boardwork (capped off with a snippet from The Beatles’ cut of the same name). Be that as it may, there’s still a strong undercurrent of venom in his bars; on the front, he snarls, “I guess I’m wounded, but f*ck that sh*t ‘cause you lost out / I’m winnin’, f*ck you doin’?” For more musical reflections on life, rap and relationships, check out Russ’s Pink Elephant LP, dropping Wednesday (1/23) via The DJBooth.
