Russ made waves putting his rhymes to the test in the rap warzone with his CHOMP – EP in 2020. He’s returned to flesh out the idea with a full-length project for the sequel, which is set to arrive at midnight ET on Wednesday (December 8).
For CHOMP 2, Russ is slated to lyrically spar in the booth with some of the best Hip Hop has to offer.
The album’s star-studded guest list includes rap legends such as Jadakiss, Snoop Dogg, Jay Electronica, The Game, Big Sean, Wale, Joey Badass, Styles P, Westside Gunn, Lloyd Banks, Ghostface Killah, Papoose, Big K.R.I.T. and CyHi The Prynce.
The independent New Jersey-bred rapper didn’t hold back on the production side either with beats from the likes of Hit-Boy, The Alchemist, DJ Premier, Boi-1da, Statik Selektah, Bink!, Mr. Porter and more.
“Bruh … im halfway through ..this thing is crazy,” Hot 97 co-host Peter Rosenberg tweeted adding hype to the project.

Hit-Boy even shared a text message he received from Boi-1da complimenting his work on the project to Instagram.
“The beat you did on CHOMP 2 [puke emoji],” he wrote. “Jesus. Yeah, the shit is hard.”
Hours after announcing the project’s imminent arrival, Russ became a trending topic on Twitter. Look for CHOMP 2 later tonight on streaming services.
