Russ has proven to be a polarizing artist, though that hasn’t stopped him from impressing some of the game’s elite lyricists; look no further than his acclaimed CHOMP EP, featuring appearances from KXNG Crooked, Benny The Butcher, Black Thought, and more. Now, Russ has tapped in with another respected veteran, producer Jake One, for his latest single “Rather Be Myself.”

“I play forever dawg, I’m focused on longevity,” he spits, over Jake’s laid-back and smooth production. “I try to run my race, and not care about who’s ahead of me / cause comparison is the recipe for depression and questionin’ your integrity, hope I don’t let it get to me.” Opting to pull back rather than barring out, Russ’ slick flow is given ample space to shine as he reflects on some of his innermost struggles. If you’re a fan of his more lyrically driven material, be sure to check out “Rather Be Myself” now and sound off in the comments.

[Chorus]
Lotta fake shit goin’ on (Yeah), I could choose to play along
But I’d rather be myself (Yeah)
I could try to be like them, probably get further ahead
But I’d rather be myself (Yeah)
People sellin’ out for fame or for dollars and some change
But I’d rather be myself (Yeah)
Now I’d be lyin’ if I said, “It never crossed my mind,” but check, man
I’d rather be myself (For real, yeah, yeah)

[Verse 1]
I play forever dawg, I’m focused on longevity
I try to run my race, and not care about who’s ahead of me ’cause
Comparison is the recipe for depression and questionin’ your integrity
Hope I don’t let it get to me but
Some days are easier than others (True)
Caught up in the numbers, make you greedier than others
So I try to just detach before my ego gets attacked
And starts to plan out its response. and do some shit I can’t take back

[Chorus]
Lotta fake shit goin’ on (Yeah), I could choose to play along
But I’d rather be myself (Yeah)
I could try to be like them, probably get further ahead
But I’d rather be myself (Yeah)
People sellin’ out for fame or for dollars and some change
But I’d rather be myself (Yeah)
Now I’d be lyin’ if I said, “It never crossed my mind,” but check, man
I’d rather be myself (For real)

[Verse 2]
Yeah, don’t wanna compromise, even if it’s popularized
Even if nobody knows, I gotta face my momma, I
Don’t want the accomplishments, if it’s via fraudulence
Can’t even be proud of that, tell ’em how you got the shit
Yeah, different language, we not speakin’ the same (We not)
Couple million for my soul, that’s not an even exchange
My soul don’t shine when I hear it
You not fly if they steer it
I don’t care about the look, it don’t align with my spirit

[Chorus]
Lotta fake shit goin’ on (Yeah), I could choose to play along
But I’d rather be myself (Yeah)
I could try to be like them, probably get further ahead
But I’d rather be myself (Yeah)
People sellin’ out for fame or for dollars and some change
But I’d rather be myself (Yeah)
Now I’d be lyin’ if I said, “It never crossed my mind,” but check, man
I’d rather be myself (For real)

[Outro]
Yeah, don’t wanna compromise, even if it’s popularized
Even if nobody knows, I gotta face my momma, I
Don’t want the accomplishments, if it’s via fraudulence
Can’t even be proud of that, tell ’em how you got the shit
