Detroit lyricist Courtney Bell returns with new single + video “Introspection”

Published

on

Courtney Bell, the lyrical Detroit rapper endorsed citywide, has returned with renewed sense of purpose, perspective, and vision on his latest single & video “Introspection”. After taking a brief hiatus from making music to focus on his mental health, community, & spiritual journey, Courtney lets listeners into the most intimate corners of his mind detailing the deep learning that occurred during his break and the extensive demons he fights on the daily. Over a subtle sample, jazzy drums, and waining keys, “Introspection” is a slow-burning confessional coupled with a lyrical exercise, showing the sheer ability & transparency that makes Courtney such a unique entity in today’s hip-hop landscape. The song encompasses the harrowing year Courtney Bell has had after tragically losing 13 people in his life to COVID, fiercely battling addiction, and even briefly losing his drive to make music. The visual for the track shows Courtney bouncing up-and-down the halls of a hospital draped in a medical gown, preaching about all of the heavy thoughts that occupy his brain and detailing the deep layers of his distinctive perspective. After taking time to find peace and figure out his own path, Courtney Bell is back and better than ever and ready to show the world he’s an MC like no other with “Introspection”.

Courtney Bell seeks to lessen the dissonance between trap and conscious rap. In 2020, he released his Poverty Strickenalbum featuring DCMBR, Janae Lynn, and TDE signee, Reason, who appeared on the Justice League-produced single, “Garments”. In the past, Courtney Bell has opened up for notable hip-hop acts such as BoogieEric Bellinger, and Dave East. Unafraid to use his platform to speak up, Courtney Bell often unapologetically expresses his frustrations against injustices committed against the Black community as heard in the Boogie assisted “Lion’s Den,” and open letter, “Dear Rap Negus.” He followed this up with a string of singles in 2021 including the Icewear Vezzo assisted “Deebo” & “Crime Pays” featuring bubbling rapper Allstar Jr. Now, after taking a brief hiatus to reevaluate his priorities, perspective, and position in the game, Courtney Bell is prepared to establish himself in the upper echelon of hip-hop today.

Doodie Lo commands tracks with his easygoing rasp and take-no-prisoners persona. Continuing a breakout year for the Kankakee, IL native, Doodie Lo shares ISTG Pt. 2,” a new collaboration with Kodak Black. The new releases remixes “ISTG,” a buzzing single released by Doodie Lo earlier this year. “ISTG Pt. 2” revels in the electric chemistry between the two rappers, as Kodak complements Doodie’s brashly confrontational verse with an impish one of his own: “It’s all good ’til it’s all bad/That n**** all cap, can’t wait to get up with his soft ass,” snarls Kodak. Directed by Jerry Production, the video for “ISTG Pt. 2” finds the dynamic duo mobbing with a crew at a private hangar, where they sip their favorite beverages before hopping on a jet.

“ISTG Pt. 2” is the latest salvo in a busy year for Doodie Lo, following recent singles like “Back Bone,” “FACE,” and the Icewear Vezzo-assisted “Melrose,” as the artist looks to make his mark with his street anthems. Last year, Doodie Lo made an impact with Big Doodie Lo, the artist’s debut full-length project. The mixtape is home to “Me & Doodie Lo,” an energetic collab between King Von and Doodie that originally appeared on OTF’s Loyal Bros compilation (and racked up over 13.8 million YouTube views), in which the legendary O-Block native gives Mr. Kankakee an enthusiastic co-sign. Over the past year, Doodie Lo has considerably grown his profile, gaining tens of thousands of YouTube subscribers and Spotify Monthly Listeners, and collaborating with heavy hitters like MoneybaggYoPoohShiestyBIG30, and more.
