As we enter 2017, along with the likes of J Hus and MoStack and more, Belly Squad are bringing the afrobeats revolution to the forefront of UK urban music.
From South and East London, Belly Squad are Ty and Max, both 18 and T1, 20. The trio have built a huge underground following, churning out street bangers; a mix of hard, inner-city rhymes sweetened by endlessly catchy melodic hooks and afro rhythms. Clocking up over 4 millions plays across their own smashes like ‘Banana’, as well as remixes of US rap anthems like Young Thug & Travis Scott’s ‘Pick Up The Phone’, Desiigner’s ‘Panda’ and Drake’s ‘Controlla’. Their hybrid ‘afrobeats’ sound blends elements of their African and Caribbean heritage with, grime, R&B and road rap.
