Don’t let the title of Russ‘s latest feature fool you; “We Should All Burn Together” sounds like something that would come out the mouth of a fire-and-brimstone preacher, but the spiritual outlook the DIEMON Records rapper/producer expounds on this freshly-minted single is considerably more forgiving than that would lead you to expect. Over his own unaccompanied acoustic guitar strums, he spits, “The devil’s got a hold on your soul, they’ve got this bond / That’s so strong. I just hope I encourage you to break it. / Cause there no wrong in tryin’ to do right, even if you don’t make it.” Labelmate Bugus directs the record’s off-the-cuff visual accompaniment. If you’re feeling this unique, reflective jam, more quality tunes await on Russ’s Pink Elephant LP, available now for streaming and download in The DJBooth.
