Roc Nation signee Belly released a new album, Mumble Rap, in early October. His last album, Inzombia, was a strong showing and featured popular songs like "Frozen Water ft. Future" and "Consuela ft. Young Thug". Inzombia, and Mumble Rap were both released under Roc Nation and XO labels.

Belly represents the harmonic bridge between the typical XO R&B artist and the Roc Nation lyrical rapper. He boasts slow trap beats with smart bars that are truly hypnotic. The Palestinian rapper's new album continues his signature East-meets-West sound and attitude.

"Alcantara" ft. Pusha T is a standout track, starting with Belly effortlessly spitting over a slow, bass-heavy beat. Pusha T offers a perfect contrast with his expressive ad-libs and witty bars that echo through until the end.

Belly comes out hard in the track "Mumble Rap," named after the album. Although the chorus mimics the tone of typical Mumble rap and sounds chopped and slopped, the rest of the track is contrasted with pristine lines that hit every beat and every syllable. We recommend playing it next time you're handed the aux at the kickback.
