HHO: Introduce yourself to the fans
Russo: I go by the name of Russo I’m a Broward County representer coming with music to get you uplifted and Lit.
HHO: How did your artist name come about?
Russo: Russo is my real name. I am Mike Russo but Mike is a common name and I’m not a common person so Russo is what people been calling since I was a kid.
HHO: Where are you from?
Russo: Broward County
HHO: Who were your musical influences growing up?
Russo: Growing up my favorite rapper has always been Trick Daddy coming from South Florida its part of the culture. Outside of Trick I’ve always loved Snoop Dogg, NWA, Biggie, 2Pac, Big Pun, Nas,
Jay Z and Eminem. I would definitely say their music helped shaped me into the artist I am today.
HHO: What hip-hop albums did you grow up listening to?
Russo: Doggy Style was my first CD and I knew every song on it word for word . After that Trick Daddy’s www.thug.com took over my life. I remember trading the Doggy Style CD for the BluePrint and I’ve been on JayZ ever since then.
HHO: What is the current single/project that you are promoting?
Russo: I just dropped a mixtape called “LIT4CURRENCY” after coming off tour with CURREN$Y that will have you feeling like you were on tour with me I’ve released it on all platforms iTunes, Google Play, Datpiff, Sound Cloud and Etc. Out of the whole project the song “LIT” and “Thank MY Haters” have been my two singles I’ve been putting the most promo on.
HHO: How did the record come about?
Russo: Lit is a song meant to make you feel exactly what the title say’s “Lit”. I was influenced to make this song due to the South Florida nightlife were there is no sleep involved. Now “Thank my Haters” is a motivating song influenced by the people that tell you you can’t make it or do something they cant do in which i call haters. the world is full of people that are going to hate what you do in life and I use them as fuel to my fire so much so I dedicated a thank you song to all my haters. feel free to hate on me.
HHO: What would be your dream collaboration with any rapper or producer?
Russo: My dream collab with a producer would be to work with Dr.Dre I have always admired the work he puts out and as I move up in my career I plan on figuring out a way to do a song with him. As far as artist collab with a major artist I think a song with Drake would be something I want to put together. He makes nothing but Hits and thats all I’m about is making major songs and timeless music.
HHO: Are you currently touring or have any upcoming shows?
Russo: Like I said I just got off tour with CURREN$Y and have remained just as active I will be at SXSW performing on main stages and promoting with my camp Mansion Movement Ent. After that we will be lining up an East Coast tour with other major artist then Midwest then the West Coast after collab’ing on tour we will be setting off our own nation wide tour and we will be on scene for any and every major event as possible such as Rolling Loud, AC3 festival,Revolt ETC……
HHO: How is the response from your fans & djs been?
Russo: Everytime I show a DJ my music I always walk away with good response’s and DJ’s keep my music to spin. As far as fans go I like to reach bigger numbers but my response has been incredible I’m always receiving love coming in at all angles watching my music grow an spread.
HHO: What artists do you listen to the most?
Russo: The artist I listen to the most is me since I’m always in the studio but when I’m not listening to my own music I love jamming Rick Ross, Gunplay, Future Kevin Gates and 2 Chainz.
HHO: What are your plans for 2018? What are you doing that others are not?
