Belly and Jay-Z Hit the Studio
The caption was extremely brief, but telling. "Zone," reads the little passage beneath the photo. Safe to say Belly and Hov were locked in.
Belly, who is about six months removed from dropping his Mumble Rap project, is a massive Hov fan, so this is obviously huge. Then again, it was also a huge deal when Jay signed the rapper to Roc Nation a little over two years ago.
Speaking to XXL about Mumble Rap last fall, Belly offered a bit of insight into how his alliance with Hova came to be. "I think it came through just a bunch of chance situations," Belly said at the time.
He continued, "Shout-out my brother Gee Roberson who ultimately was the reason Hov heard my shit and once Hov heard my shit, I heard they were doing something, I can't remember. And he played the music somewhere and somebody that was there called somebody that I know and was like, 'Yo, Hov playing your shit.' That was the first time I heard anything and then some short time after, me and him met up and decided we're gonna do this thing together."
