Raymond Russ, (born May 21, 1982) musically known as Nfinit3, is a hip-hop producer from the Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia region known as the DMV. Nfinit3 accredits a personal friend for introducing him to the sounds of 9th Wonder and Kanye West back in 2003 which in turn led to his decision to pursue beat-making. Years of studying 9th, Kanye, Dilla, Premier and others aided in the growth and development of Nfinit3's sound. In 2006 Nfinit3 linked up with Justus League affiliate, Phocuz, for a few songs as well as established a musical friendship with up and coming r&b sensation Carlitta Durand. Several collaborative efforts on songs allowed Nfinit3 to release his first project, a mixtape titled The Track Sessions Vol. 1 in the fall of ‘07. It consisted of the producer’s instrumentals as well as tracks with an array of underground artists. Outside of Phocuz, Nfinit3 has also produced tracks for the likes of Range da Messenga, Big T of Southernboi Entertainment, P. Genz, Poe Mack, Velben, Vibe H.O.T.T. and Bucky Dolla. In the spring of ‘08 Nfinit3 teamed with M-City artist, Bucky Dolla to release their collaborative effort, The Mixed Bag Effect, digititally worldwide. In the fourth quarter of the same year they followed up with their 2nd album titled, The Almighty Dolla, available digitally as well as by hardcopy. Nfinit3 also released a solo project called, First Times A Charm in the summer of ‘08. He considered it his “one time experimental release”, finding himself rapping and singing over his own production.

Word of the Day

You can live your entire life waiting for something to become what you want it to be, only to find out it wasn’t meant to be. You can attempt to force love into a situation that isn’t built to support it. You can give up on your own happiness just to be content with what is already in place. You can make excuses to stay, make excuses to leave, make excuses as to why you can’t move on but in the end you’re left with nothing but regret chasing behind those excuses. You deserve what you want and what you need. Stop waiting for something or someone to change or become what it is you seek. If they were about your joy, it would already have come to fruition. Don’t waste your years, your time, your life on people and situations that don’t fit in your plan, progress and future. Do not fear the uncertainty that accompanies change. You have a hand in writing your destiny. Invest in what makes your heart warm, in what makes you smile.

Word of the Day

“Love is to conquer self and turn to courtesy. If we could conquer self and turn to courtesy for one day, all below heaven would turn to love. Does love flow from within, or does it flow from others?”
