K. Bellz – No Profanity Needed
K.Bellz is a rap artist/college student out of New Jersey who mixes Hip Hop, R&B, and pop influences to create his own sound. DRUGS seems to be a big topic in music today, instead of resorting to the “average” type of song content, K.Bellz tries to put forth something new.
K.Bellz writes all his songs based off of real life situations, and experiences.
He uses his outstanding Lyrical skill to express what he’s going through whether he is being cocky, talking to the ladies, or even trying to deliver a positive message. A big fact about K.Bellz is that he believes he is too lyrical to curse. K.Bellz stated “its too easy to just use a curse word to fill in a blank.
I like a challenge, but believe me my word play will make up for it.”. Which makes him different from a lot of artists today. K.Bellz has come a long way from going no where fast to where he is now which gives him an edge. He does have songs serious songs about his past which he tries to end on a positive note, but for the most part he tries to bring the fun back to music.
So get to know this young, edgy, slick mouthed, different, and fun music artist in this interview. As the summer ends and the Fall creeps in we had a chance to chop it up with K. Bellz and it went a little something like this.
HipHopLead- For starts where did the name come from?
K.Bellz- K.Bellz comes from me being well known, everyone says “my name rings bellz”.
HipHopLead- How old are you exactly?
K.Bellz- I am 21 years old.
HipHopLead- Is there an age that’s too young or too old in this hip hop, in your opinion?
K.Bellz- No I dont feel like there is an age limit on hip hop because music can be made up of just about anything. Whether its a 5 year old’s song or a 50 year old’s song, it’s still a song.
HipHopLead- You make it pretty evident you rep real hip hop with honest verses and no curses. No one has really done that since Rakim and Will Smith. Do you think being “clean” makes it harder for you to get your shine on?
K.Bellz- Not at all, I can get my shine on without having to curse.
HipHopLead- When you first started rapping was your content and different? Did you use profanity?
K.Bellz- Yes I first started out battle rapping, and gangster rapping, at a young age.
HipHopLead- Why is it you think the south continues to make a heavy noise, and a lot of New Jersey artists don’t go on a mainstream level any more?
K.Bellz- To be honest I feel they get a buzz because they make the songs we all wanna dance and sing along to. When we are more focused on lyrics.
HipHopLead- In “Nice To Meet Ya” you addressed an element that is missing nowerdays. Just having fun and meeting that someone, experiencing that “new” feeling. What made you write this type of track?
K.Bellz- The experience helped me make “nice2meet ya” its a track I feel everyone can relate to and have fun with.
HipHopLead- What obstacles and real life experiences made you come up with “I’m Doin Good”?
K.Bellz- Feelings all put together helped me write “I’m Doing Good”, I never really talk about my problems, or complain about how im feeling, so I decided to write them down.

HipHopLead- On “I’m Doing Good” you spit, “As I get older I’m starting to grow a colder heart/ Continuously surviving the storm just like Noah’s Ark”. Do you think as we grow older we get immune to pain? Like if we turn on the news and hear of a mass shooting are we de-sensitized?
K.Bellz- Yes, I do feel sometimes you become numb to it. When the same thing keeps happening you get used to it, and you begin to adjust yourself to it. Are we immune to shootings? I certainly am not. I cant say we will get used to mass shootings, but we can to every day unfortunate situations in life that arent as big as being fatal such as stress.
HipHopLead- With slick lines like that does it bother when you see a rapper on the tv with a major deal who couldn’t formulate a rhyme scheme like that to save there lives?
K.Bellz- Yes, seeing others is starting to bother me because I work very hard to come up with lyrics and songs, and to see songs that aren’t worth listening to on tv, and things like that, makes me feel like I’m working hard for nothing. I know it’s all gonna work out soon.
HipHopLead- What is your next planned release going to be?
K.Bellz- I’m dropping a single soon called “I’m Feeling Myself”.
HipHopLead- What is your favorite record you have ever recorded to date?
K.Bellz- Every song that I’ve made is my favorite.
HipHopLead- Who were your favorite musical influences that molded you into the artist you are today?
K.Bellz- My influences today are Drake, Jay-Z, and T.I. at the moment because these are two artists that have the music game all figured out and are also successfull business wise.
HipHopLead- Any features worth mentioning on the upcoming projects?
K.Bellz- So far everything is featuring me, myself, and I.
HipHopLead- Speaking of that are you looking for a Major or to stay Indy?
K.Bellz- So far Indy, but if the money is right, who knows.
HipHopLead- If by some chance music doesn’t pan out for you what will you be doing 5 years from now?
