Rising rapper, songwriter and producer BELLY premieres his latest video for his song "Trap Phone" featuring Jadakiss. The video was directed by Spiff TV (Diddy, Drake, French Montana, Rick Ross) in New York City and features the duo driving and performing the song around the city, while playing homage to iconic hip hop videos of the past. The song is taken from Belly's latest acclaimed mixtape, Inzombia, which was released earlier this fall and also features collaborations with the likes of Future, Young Thug and rising artist Nav.

On the video's concept, Belly told GQ: "In my mind I kept seeing that one scene from the ' You're All I Need' video, with Method Man wearing that Tommy Hilfiger jacket. That was such an iconic scene. I wanted to just recreate that with the old school Tommy, the old- school clothes. You know, the dope boy vibe."  GQ calls the video" an ode to music videos of the '90s, packed with gritty back streets and loads of vintage Tommy Hilfiger"

Over the past several years, Belly has quickly made a name for himself as one of the most exciting and promising rising artists, both behind the mixing console and on the stage. With a catalogue full of cerebral, gritty music, the Roc Nation artist made waves with the 2016 RIAA Gold-certified single “Might Not” (featuring The Weeknd), off of 2015’s Up For Days, which spent a month atop the Rhythmic Radio charts on Billboard. After releasing Another Day In Paradise earlier in 2016, Belly released the 11-track mixtape Inzombia this November to acclaim. Belly is also a highly decorated songwriter and producer. The OSCAR-nominated and GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter has worked with artist like The Weeknd, Lil Wayne, Future, Travis Scott, Kehlani, Ariana Grande, Young Thug, Juicy J, French Montana, Ty Dolla $ign and Banks. Recently, Belly was awarded the “Songwriter of the Year” award at the 2016 SOCAN (Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) Awards for his significant contribution to popular music over the past year. Up next, Belly is set to release his debut studio album for Roc Nation in the new year.
