Xian Bell – “Loyal AF”

After earning posts on ItsBizkit, Respect-Mag, YouHeardThatNew, SOHH, Boi-1da,HHS1987  and over 30 other sites, Xian Bell returns with a new unreleased single dubbed, “Loyal AF.”  The track rests in a sedated laid back state as Xian sings/raps over a trapped out R&B beat.
Effortlessly rapping and singing at the same time, Xian (pronounced Key-yawn) sings this sultry joint for the ladies that are loyal to their men. The song can be found on Xian Bell’s ContraDistrict album set for release on June 2nd and follows up his previous video releases, “Litty City” and “She On Go.”
 

“The District is just one big ass contradiction but it all meshes perfectly into some dope sh*t. That’s exactly what I am – a big f*cked up contradiction that luckily turned out dope,” Xian Bell candidly. 

That internal contradiction and deep roots in The District aptly yielded the title of his newest project, ContraDistrict, which will be available for fans on Soundcloud early Summer ’17. In the mean time Xian Bell is gearing up for the release of several more pieces of content including this new single and the project release itself.  

 

Growing up in one of Los Angeles’ most notoriously rough neighborhoods and with a father serving a life sentence, Crenshaw bred artist XianBell flourished with unfavorable odds. 

Persevering through scant odds and a rough upbringing, Xian Bell developed an feverish passion for creating for music at an early age. Inspired by seeing his older cousin find success with music on TV,  Xian Bell knew music was his calling and it saved his life. 

“When I saw the world premiere of my older cousin CJ Mac’s video with Mack 10 and TQ ‘Imagine That,’ it was the first time I saw someone I knew on TV,” Xian Bell explained.  “I realized I could make it out of our area without playing ball or selling drugs. Although he was rapping about drugs, it showed me that you can reap immense benefits by talking about your life. I’ve always loved writing, so since then my love for it just grew as I developed my craft.” 

Forming like a diamond in the rough, Xian Bell‘s ambition and hunger for musical success drove him to a sound that mixes rap and singing together. 

“I just want my music to be a representation of me. Although it’s sort of a rapping cadence, I’m primarily a singer. It’s a mix of both worlds, which my whole ContraDistrict project represents,” he said. “I’ve been heavily influenced by both my parents, and now with all my cousins and best friends I grew up with being dead or in jail, I struggle with guilt remorse of leaving them behind to try and better myself.”
