In the city: Pell

“I feel like you have to change with the times and push to what can be the future" - Pell

Pell doesn’t sound like he hails from New Orleans; instead, he draws inspiration from technology and reinvention. “In my generation, technology has given me the access to a lot of music,” he says. “Yeah, I may have heard brass bands on the street or bounce, but in my headphones, I was always jamming to Kanye West, Lil Wayne, or Lupe Fiasco; rap everywhere from the west and east coast.”
