Earlier this week, the Atlanta artist-producer dropped off a new visual from CHOMP 2 for the Jake One-backed “Hustler Freestyle,” which — as the title suggests — sees Russ reflecting on his string of hard-fought wins:

“I do what I’m born to do, you do what you’re told, I don’t think I ask for much, just give me what I’m owed, man, they tried to give me two but I made ’em give me four, opportunity ain’t knock, so I had to build the door, bust it down, Cuban link … I want the crown, that’s non negotiable, and if I haven’t reached my goals, I’m not approachable, don’t talk to me, I’m agitated, I know I made it but I still feel like I haven’t made it, guess that’s just the hustler in me…”

The accompanying clip for Edgar Esteves keeps things simple and to the point, which Russ enjoying a drink while roaming throughout what looks like a massive property somewhere in the middle of the desert. At in automatic captioning and you have a video that keeps the focus entirely on the song’s subject matter.
