Over the weekend, a big name in the world of hip-hop touched down in Barcelona to pay a visit to the Blaugrana. American rap star Russ took time out from his European tour to pop in and say “Hola” while enjoying the Camp Nou Experience — a VIP tour of the famous old stadium.
He even ended the day with his own personalised, signed Barca shirt complete with the No. 23 on the back.
Whether Russ (whose hit “What They Want” has been streamed more than 190 million times) was a particular fan of Samuel Umtiti before his stadium tour is debatable, but it would appear that the pair are now best of friends.
