Taking Over The Rap Game: Day One

Unbeknownst to most of you, I've been attempting to parlay this gig into a hip-hop career for some time now. I've got the skills (obviously), but the only holding me back has been the reluctance of any established artist/producer in the game to take a chance on me.

Until now.

I've spent the past 12 hours locked in a room with nothing but a pen and a pad. Have yet to come up with any puns for the name "Russ." Am I deterred? Absolutely not.

Do you know that Nas originally went with "Santa Cruz State of Mind" on Illmatic instead of "New York State of Mind?" Did you know that I just made that up? I did. Doesn't change the fact that "Santa Cruz State of Mind" would have ruined the entire album.

Inspired.
