Host of Beats 1 radio, Zane Lowe, alerted us early this morning of new heat coming from Canadian rapper, Belly. “Consuela” featuring Young Thug and Zack was debuted this morning on the platform and Belly called in to share some insight on his creative process and his major success this year.
The Roc Nation signee tells Lowe that he uses obstacles in his personal life to create, write and produce: “First of all, I’m Middle Eastern, so there’s a lot of struggle to talk about coming from where I come from. I felt like hip-hop for me was the greatest platform to use. It just felt like a very rebellious platform. For what I wanted to say, it felt like I could go against the grain and use hip-hop to do that.”
He also confirms that he will be dropping his Inzombia project any day now but has yet to confirm it’s release. For now listen to the track and a clip of the interview below.
