The wait ends soon for an album years in the making.

Atlanta emcee/singer/producer/engineer Russ, a former DJBooth Top Prospect and a Rap Box series alum, has announced the release of his debut album, There's Really a Wolf, on May 5.

The 20-track LP, which is now available for pre-order through Russ' own Russ My Way Inc. and Columbia Records, will include previously-released, Gold-certified singles "What They Want" and "Losin Control," as well as "Pull the Trigger" and "Do It Myself."

"From the first beat I made almost 11 years ago to the first song I put out 6 years ago, it was all just to get to this point," wrote Russ on his Instagram. "Thank you to all the fans."

What Do Booking Agents Do?

Live performance is so important that crafting such a strategy requires input from not just a manager, but also a booking agent.
