Detroit native Courtney Bell announces his album Poverty Stricken (pre-save) alongside another hard hitting single from the project, “PSA.” Produced by Grammy Award winning !llmind, Courtney shows his lyrical prowess and touches on complex themes of spiritual impact, the systemic failure in our world, and maintaining his optimistic worldview despite these issues. The cinematically-styled video directed by Jack Anderson & the Drop Creative team, opens with a Godfather-esque “meeting of the minds” in which Courtney and his inner circle discuss the disarray plaguing their community. With a team at his back, Courtney delivers a “PSA” and becomes a leader and face of change.

Showing no signs of slowing down, Courtney continues to deliver his message of  enlightenment to the masses. He recently released “ICE,” an upbeat single about glorifying materialism over the spirit as well as “Say You Wanna,” showing off his softer side.  Furthering his mission to serve marginalized communities that he represents, Courtney created a monthly campaign this summer called, “The Fight Isn’t Over” where he delivered fresh water to Flint residents. Courtney is currently ending a 90 day healing and detox journey.

Courtney Bell – Poverty Stricken

Published

on

It’s been less than 48 hours since the release, yet its impact feels impending. I’m gonna need to let the music soak in over the next few weeks, but first impressions – “Poverty Stricken” is an artist defining album. Courtney Bell has been verbally supplying his message for some time now, and it all comes together for this fantastic journey into his mind & thoughts. Articulate in the way Courtney Bell is able to paint pictures well driving you forward into deep listening to decipher what he is truly saying here. It’s deep, backed with powerful production including a track I was glad to see make it on as a bonus. “PSA” featuring production from Grammy award-winning producer !llmind finishes the fifteen song album off perfectly.

Long before you reach track fifteen though you travel a riveting path amongst the Detroit native’s metaphors & vivid verses. From the album artwork style lyric video above for the opening “GB4“, the structured storytelling of “1994/Dealer“, to other standouts such as “Garment” feat. Reason & “25 Hours” where we hear him speak on the risks and struggles of pursuing dreams. Off first impressions, I feel this will be in heavy rotation for some time to come indeed & that this album will unravel exciting new chapters for the artist.

Take in the entire album for yourself and enjoy the newest music from Courtney Bell.

Featuring Reason, Janae Lynn, & DCMBR

Published

The moment I heard “Not Today” for the first time I was immediately drawn in.

I swear somehow, someway Apple needs to see this! You know! This beautifully crafted video directed by BiLLY FAMOUS, and HEAR what not only garnered “GOLDEN RATiO“, a top album I featured on my top 50 list in 2019, but also happened to be one of my favorite cuts from that very album! Now with a brand new video to provide such an impactful song justice as you enter a sonic zone of appearing away, that we might all relate to at some level upon a tumultuous 2020. “Not Today” by AGiLE SOCiETY is one of those songs that you can go back to over and over and over.
