Belly 'Immigrant'

More than a decade after releasing his debut studio album, The Revolution, XO artist Belly has shared its politically charged follow-up IMMIGRANT.

Belly announced the project in early September, in wake of the Trump administration's controversial immigration policies.

"I think it’s more like a diary, bro. It’s a diary of my life. It’s the most venerable I’ve ever been on any album. It means the most to me than anything I’ve ever put out," the Palestine-Canadian rapper told RESPECT magazine. "I purposely cut songs off that I felt didn’t relate to the album. To me, even if it was a hit and everybody felt like it was, it didn’t matter. If it doesn’t match the theme of this, this immigrant s**t, I don’t want it in my album. We can figure it out. We can put it somewhere down the line."

The 11-track project is stacked with big-name features, including Meek Mill and the Weekend to Metro Boomin and Nav. 

You can stream IMMIGRANT now on Apple Music and Spotify.
