Belly and Jay-Z were caught redhanded.
In an Instagram post late Friday night, rapper Belly might be making new music with one of the greats.
The post features Belly looking down at his phone while Jay-Z looks at something on a laptop. The two are seated behind a mixing board. The caption simply reads “zone.”
This could mean so many things. It could mean that the two are working on new music together or that Belly is going to be featured on an upcoming Jay-Z track exclusive to Tidal.
It could also be Belly is working on something new that is going to have a guest appearance by HOV himself or Jay-Z is simply there to oversee the work being done and be there in a producer capacity seeing as Belly is a member of the Roc Nation family.
As HotNewHipHop.com points out, the caption clearly denotes that the two are in the zone working on something, but that something still remains a mystery.
It wouldn’t be surprising to have Jay feature on an upcoming Belly track. After all, he had an incredible 2017. After signing with Roc Nation in 2015, he worked heavily with The Weeknd on his album Beauty Behind the Madness as well as Beyonce’s album Lemonade where he earned multiple writing credits.
In November of 2016, he released his mixtape Inzombia and featured guest appearances by Young Thug, Jadakiss, Future, and Ty Dolla Sign.
The mixtape consisted of songs about the darkest places the artist had ever known. Finally, he released Mumble Rap only last year and has had the videos released as Tidal exclusives, including “Lullaby,” ever since. The mixtape reached no. 55 on the Canadian Albums Chart.
For now, fans will have to speculate whether or not the two will be working on a track together in a collaboration capacity.
Keep up with music at Salute.
