Detroit native Courtney Bell releases his debut album, Poverty Stricken revealing harsh truths and realities of his upbringing on Joy Road. Courtney expresses his most vulnerable moments leading up to a spiritual awakening and continues his mission to bring a sense of enlightenment to the streets. The album took about 2 years to create and is executive produced by Raymond Burton, Pay Cash and Derrick Rendle. Additional production comes from Justice League, !llmind with features from DCMBR, Janae Lynn and TDE’s REASON. Singles from the album include: “PSA,” “ICE,” an upbeat track about glorifying materialism over the spirit and “Say You Wanna,” which shows Courtney’s softer side.
“The title itself speaks on every impoverished kid in every ghetto across the world. For me it was about speaking on my life in a relatable way telling the forgotten stories,” says Courtney Bell.
Earlier this week, Courtney stopped by the LA Leakers to rep his city and show his lyrical prowess in a freestyle. While, last week Courtney released an explosive track, “Lions Den” tag teaming with Compton’s Boogie (WS Boogie) both demonstrating an authentic flow.
Furthering his calling to serve marginalized communities, over the summer Courtney created a monthly campaign called, “The Fight Isn’t Over” where he delivered fresh water to Flint residents.
