It's the CInderella story, most can only dream of - but looks like Russ stays more tapped in to what's going on through the internet than most other artists.
Russ first hit my personal For You Page on TikTok, while he was duetting some great creators from TikTok to his new song 'Handsomer,' but there was one artist that received more praise than others, the artist ktlyn.
Russ himself issued an "open verse" challenge and ktlyn accepted with a verse that blew the Tik-Tok verse away. She appears in the following video at 4:30.
Ktlyn is an artist, with some visuals and songs available on YouTube. Her username is "ktlyn raps."
