Curtis "Grandson" Bell says he's not pretending. "This is really me," says the 23-year-old Rochester resident, referring to his church upbringing, perfect manners and aura of positivity that he's not shy about promoting. Whether it's truly authentic or a charming facade, Bell's demeanor is refreshing for a hip-hop artist who's shooting for the mainstream while trying to stay grounded. After all, Bell says he makes "motivational music." "When you hear my music it should make you want to go out and do something positive," he says. That bubbly energy is never more apparent than on his new single, "Everybody Loves Me." With the song's Southern, club vibe and a hook that's downright infectious, Bell has hit his mark.
