Russ has teamed up with criminal justice reform advocate Weldon Angelos to urge President Joe Biden to pardon prisoners serving time for cannabis offenses.
April 29, 2021 Speaking on support from rappers, Angelos added, This is an amazing show of support from the Hip Hop community. Ralo is incarcerated side by side with countless other victims of the war on drugs watching CEOs of cannabis companies profiting while he is preparing to be sentenced to years in federal prison. We cant abide this double standard; the evidence supports that individuals of color are disproportionately locked up while an industry led by predominantly white men is booming. In March, Russ launched his own cannabis company CHOMP,named after his EP of the same name featuring Busta Rhymes, Black Thought, DJ Premier, Benny The Butcher, Ab-Soul and KXNG Crooked. I just wanted to create something organic that was true to me, he said at the time.

On Friday (June 25), he released a video for his latest single Satisfy watch below. Subscribe to DX Newsletter Get The Most Important Stories Of The Day Straight To Your Inbox Thank You! Thank You!
