ABOUT StayBent Krunk-a-Delic
Hernst Bellevue, Jr., better known by his stage name “Krunkadelic” or “Krunk”, is an American platinum, grammy-winning songwriter and record producer. Today, he actively supervises and continues to produce mainstream records with songwriting/production teams, as well as up-and-coming artists that he has helped develop over the past few years between LA and Miami.
In the early stages of Krunk’s music career, he teamed up with record producer and family member Salaam Remi who needed assistance at his studio. What he didn’t yet realize was that one studio session would foretell a 10+ year collaborative relationship with Remi, or give rise to "Nappy Heads" - the first successful commercial release by a then emerging Rap group called The Refugees; better known today as The Fugees.
Krunk’s first big break came in 2002, when he was afforded the opportunity to co-produce with Remi for a song called “Can’t Get it Back” by R&B group Blaque. That same year he produced a record for Mercury Award and three-time MOBO winning artist Ms. Dynamite. The transcontinental record, in collaboration with multi-platinum Hip-Hop artist, Nas, was called “Afraid to Fly”, and it went on to go double platinum in the UK.
Since then, Krunk has gone on to write and produce records for a wide range of chart-topping artists in the Pop music and urban categories, from Jamie Foxx, UK platinum recording artists Misteeq, Ludacris, G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Consequence, Noel Gourdin, Nina Sky, Alison Hinds, Lil Flip and I 20 to name a few. His work has been featured on gold and platinum records such as Nelly Furtado’s Latin Grammy-winning and platinum album, Mi Plan, for which he contributed two songs and Jamie Foxx’s “I Don’t Know”. He has also contributed his production skills to Motown Remixed (a special project reworking the Jackson 5 hit single, "ABC" alongside Salaam Remi), Big Boi (“Follow Us”), Jazmine Sullivan (“Love You Long Time” and “Stutterin”), Faith Evans (“Love in Me”), Ciara (“Click Flash”), Livvi Franc (“Now I’m that B*tch”), Hal Linton (“Mind Control”), Nelly Furtado and Elton John (“Crocodile Rock” for the“Gnomeo and Juliet soundtrack) and the double-platinum single “Temperature” by Reggae all-star, Sean Paul. (The latter reached no.1 on the Billboard 100 Charts.) In 2011, he produced a record for the Brett Ratner-directed film, Tower Heist, called “She Got Me”, and collaborated on the closing credit record which features Nas and Rick Ross called, “It’s a Tower Heist". His work on platinum J Records recording artist and actress Jennifer Hudson's gold album I Remember Me, specifically for the song "Feeling Good", is currently in rotation as the theme song for her endorsement as national spokesperson for Weight Watchers.
