South London rapper Russ Millions’ energetic delivery has made him a powerhouse in the UK drill scene. Born Shylo Batchelor Ashby Milwood in 1996, the Lewisham MC began trying his hand at rapping in 2016, peppering street tales into his rhymes early on. In 2018, he released his breakthrough hit, “Gun Lean,” a propulsive song named after a viral dance featured in some of the artist’s initial music videos. By 2019, Russ Millions had transitioned from newcomer to cemented fan favorite with the carnal single “Keisha & Becky,” a joint effort with North London rapper/songwriter Tion Wayne that was remixed to feature the who’s who of UK drill: Aitch, Swarmz, Savo, and JAY1. In 2021, Russ Millions and Tion Wayne would join forces again to release “Body,” a frenetic, swaggering track that was remixed multiple times itself, including a version with a braggadocious take from Kentucky MC Jack Harlow.
