Previously going by the name Ark, Alex Russell humbly began his rap career in 2012 at the age of 13. Working with producer/best friend Mert every day, both artists began to develop a special chemistry creating music that heavily intermixed Hip-Hop with Jazz influenced beats.
In 2016, Ark switched to Alex after creating an EP titled Smoke with singer Danielle Bambola & Mert. After releasing over 27 songs/remixes, Alex decided that a final name change was needed in order to make a push to break into the mainstream culture.
Alex Russell is a 20 year old rapper from Long Island, New York who loves to constantly switch cadence and flow throughout a song. Closely watching other artists who inspired him, he realized that longevity is associated with artists who can switch up their sound and make music for every sub-genre of rap. Alex strives to make songs that show personal struggles while making relatable music. In an interview by "The Home Stretch" Alex said, "The end goal isn't getting signed by a label, I think honestly having a platinum song would be the craziest thing. I think that would make me feel like I accomplished everything."
