A look at the rapper’s life

Belly was born in Jenin in the Palestinian West Bank, a region mired by conflict and violence. He was raised in Ottawa, Canada, where he arrived when he was 7. 

Although Belly has become a prominent name in the music industry in the past few years, the rapper has been around for much longer.

The 37-year-old musician distinguished himself as a rapper, singer/songwriter, who had endured cultural displacement and poverty. His experiences as an immigrant in Canada further fuelled his music as he pours his stories into the lyrics of his song.

He became a breakthrough artist in 2007, in his early 20s after his debut LP The Revolution, topped the Canadian Top 30 charts.

Pursuing music from his teenage years, at twenty-one, the future star debuted his mixtape, Death Before Dishonor: Vol. 1.

Thanks to his successful music career the rapper has exceeded the limits of what an immigrant artist can achieve in the world of music.

Belly, whose real name is Ahmad Balshe found fulfilment in his personal life too. He is currently engaged to the resident doctor and Columbia University alum Dina Rabadi.

A look at his music career

Despite finding success in the big bad world of music in 2007, it took another two years for Belly to find a high profile collaboration. His single Hot Girl featuring Snoop Dogg was released on 8 September 2009.

His 2011 single Back Against the Wall featured Grammy Award-nominated singer Kobe Honeycutt.

Since then he has collaborated with artists the likes of Travis Scott, French Montana, and The Weeknd. Finally, in 2015 he was signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label, opening doors for the rapper to enter the big leagues and the rest is history.
