Working for almost a decade as a hip-hop producer and songwriter, Belly’s first album “THE REVOLUTION” premiered at #1 on Soundscan Canada (Rap and R&B charts) in June of 2007. Earlier that year, Belly was announced as the opening act for Snoop Dogg’s 16 date Blue Carpet Treatment Tour. The tour also featured legendary icons Ice Cube, as well as the DoggPound (Kurupt, and Daz Dillinger). This helped Belly gain recognition from coast to coast, and sparked a fire that continues to burn strong today. He went on to receive 4 nominations at the MuchMusic Video awards (MMVA, equivalent to VMA) and took home Best Rap Video for his first single “Pressure” featuring platinum selling recording artist Ginuwine. He also performed alongside Ginuwine in what the Toronto Sun quoted as “the standout live performance of the night.”
In October 2007, Belly became the first independent Canadian hip-hop artist to go Gold this decade. His debut album “THE REVOLUTION” was critically acclaimed and equally controversial. The album earned Belly a cult following and made him a household name in Canada.
In April of 2008 his third video “Ridin” featuring Mario Winans got nominated for 4 MuchMusic video awards and his video “I’m the Man” ft. Kurupt got nominated for 1 making him the only artist that year to get nominated in 5 categories. He won Best Rap Video for the second year in a row. In 2008 Belly not only took home Best Rap Video of the Year but also a Juno Award (equivalent to a Grammy in Canada) for Best Hip-Hop Album of the Year. It was a feat that few expected, but many respected. Belly became a Canadian superstar headlining his own sold out tours across Canada.
On October 27th, Belly released his fourth mixtape to date “Back For the First time” partnering up with DJ Smallz [Southern Smoke] and his Fear Factor brand. The mixtape was featured on major online media outlets such as Thisis50.com [2 day takeover], Allhiphop.com, HipHopCanada.com, WorldstarHipHop, 2DopeBoys,Smokingsection and more. The tape presents collaborations with an array of different artists including Snoop Dogg, Drake, Kurupt, the late Stack Bundles, Bynoe, P-Reign, and Belly’s younger brother Truth.
The first single “Hot Girl” ft. Snoop Dogg was released to an online audience in July 2009 “It’s been a long time coming,” Belly explains. “This is a dream come true for the average person, but it’s defying the odds coming where I’m from. The first rap album I ever owned was Doggystyle, so this is a defining moment in my life.” The video for “Hot Girl” was directed by award-winning RT! and was added on MuchMusic’s “BIG ONE” and is currently on rotation.
Belly is also working on his album with notable producers from the South including the Grammy award winning Jim Jonsin (Lollipop-Lil Wayne, Whatever You Like – T.I., Kiss Me Thru The Phone – Soulja Boy), Hugo Diaz (Diaz Brothers), Blackout Movement(This is Why I’m Hot – Mims), Infamous (Mr. Carter – Lil Wayne, Prom Queen – Lil Wayne), Da Heala, Whosane?? and various other reputable producers who have shown excitement towards his project.
“I’m taking my time, and doing things right this time. With everything I accomplished, its sad to say I feel like I’ve accomplished nothing… I’ll let you know how I feel after I win a couple Grammy’s,” he says with a smile.
