VA Crysis aka Jarriet Russ, born in Wilmington, North Carolina, was raised in central Virginia, where he began his music career. Crysis took many risks and opportunities as his music took him to various regions of the East coast including Florida, Atlanta, North Carolina, and Connecticut all in a short amount of time. In 2013 Crysis opened up for Juelz Santana at Fevers night club. Going into 2014 he would once again grace the stage before a well known Atlanta legend the late Shawty Lo. In Early 2015 producer Jay Talent of Soul Touchaz Ent./ LP Records discovered VA Crysis. After hearing only a couple tracks Talent immediately placed Crysis into artist development to prepare hime for industry level productions and collaborations. Not long after becoming associated with Jay Talent and honing his penmanship skills Crysis saw his consistency paying off. In 2016 he was booked to headline the Juneteenth Music Festival in New York. The fan reactions and turnout of the festival was so great that Crysis was requested once again to headline in June of 2017. VA Crysis is well known for giving fans new music on a regular basis; at times even releasing multiple singles in a month. Most recently it has been alleged that his premier music video for “Who I Used To Be” will be available for streaming shortly. Crysis stands behind the motto “You can see my grind,” so keep an eye out as each project becomes bigger and better. And remember, “Never Give Up”
