Hip-Hop: An Interview with Cam Bells

Artists like Cam Bells, The Prince of PVD, are few and far between. This young, talented artist pops in and out of the music scene on his own time and leaves a lasting impression with his raw honesty and passion. Our conversation only scratched the surface, but I am sure you will be hearing a lot more from him very soon.

Spocka Summa: Are you originally from RI?

Cam Bells: Born and raised on the south side of Providence.

SS: How would you categorize the music you create?

CB: I call it ‘Ocean Blues,’ a fusion of R&B, hip-hop, soul and jazz.

SS: What would you say is a reoccurring message in your music?

CB: Good versus evil, family, love and God tend to be the most reoccurring topics, but ‘The Providence Renaissance’ has been the overall theme of my last two projects.

SS: You’re a vocalist and producer. Do you have any other hidden talents? If so, what are they?

CB: Most recently, I’ve been DJing at local bars and private events. R&B from the 1970s – 1990s is my specialty.

SS: Do you have advice for people pursuing a similar career in the industry?

CB: Invest your time into mastering your craft, and when the timing is right the universe will welcome you with open arms.

SS: In 2017, what should we expect to see from you?

CB: My first album, Young King, Old Soul, will be dropping in the forthcoming weeks. Expect a lot of events and pop-ups in the PVD area, as well as in other cities such as Boston, New York and LA.

SS: Where can people find you?

CB: PrinceofPVD.com

Recently I went to his event at Trade Pop-up where he was promoting his upcoming project. Overall, the vibe was very laid-back, and he was just there playing some R&B music and talking to everyone who came into the venue. Not many artists do a great job when it comes to telling a story through their music, but after listening to CAM’s project, I give it two thumbs up.
