EDITOR'S PICK

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

The moment I heard “Not Today” for the first time I was immediately drawn in. It soaks up the feeling of needing to be alone in your own space at times, a perfect analogy disguised behind wearing AirPods to avoid contact as you walk onward in your day. 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.
