List RulesNo EPs.

Presenting every Russ album, ranked from best to worst. Many rap fans may not have heard of the hip hop artist, real name Russell James Vitale, until the release of 2017 release of his platinum-selling album, There's Really a Wolf on Columbia. However, while this was indeed his first major label album, it is actually the 12th LP in the Russ discography.

In total the Jersey-born, Atlanta-based rapper has a staggering 14 studio albums to his name; Vitale released his first 11 albums solely via his own Diemon record label, before teaming up with Columbia for his 2017-2020 LPs. From his debut album, Velvet (released in 2011, when the rapper was only 19), 2020's Shake the Snow Globe, there is hardly a dull moment in this list of Russ albums. But, it's up to you to decide which are the best, and which are the worst. 

Which LPs have the best Russ songs of all time? Do you prefer the new Russ albums, or his older independent joints?

Vote up the best Russ albums below, and vote down the ones that you could live without.
