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.
