Courtney Bell Recruits Conway The Machine For New Single

Coming out of Westside Detroit with a bottomless book of bars, Courtney Bell can compete with any lyricist in the game. Today, Courtney recruits Griselda giant Conway The Machine to bless “Word II Conway,” his new single. Applying his heady concepts to a bass-heavy boom-bap instrumental, Courtney tosses off talismanic tongue-twisters, reflecting on his unfortunate upbringing and asserting that he has the fortitude to overcome anything: “Heart of a giant/I be in the jungle with lions/I’m David to every Goliath who made it out of all the hell we’ve been mired in,” spits Courtney. In a gruff voice that contrasts with Courtney’s pure tone, Conway delivers words of wisdom on the hook, before finishing the track with his wisest words of all: “Get familiar with my bro Courtney Bell.”

“Word II Conway” is the latest single from Courtney Bell’s upcoming project, Microdose, a wide-ranging effort that drops on May 17th via MNRK Urban. The single follows “Westside,” a single created in collaboration with Courtney’s mentor Royce Da 5’9, who plays Morpheus to Courtney’s Neo in the “Westside” video. Microdose was executive produced by Royce Da 5’9 and Keith “Pay Cash” Miller, and also features Skilla BabyBlack ThoughtSymba and more.

Renowned in the Detroit streets and more than ready for national recognition, Courtney Bell is on the come-up. The rapper took his talents to [http://]On The Radar earlier this year, demonstrating his lyrical prowess and giving a glimpse into what to expect from him this year. The Westside native previously made waves with his 2020 mixtape, Poverty Stricken, featuring the single “ICE” (1.5 million streams on Spotify) and a collaboration with REASON. Last year, his Poverty Stricken single “Celebrate” landed on the soundtrack for the blockbuster Gran Turismo film.
