Fans of Palestinian rapper Belly were treated to some unexpected news today. His last studio album, ‘See You Next Wednesday,’ came out in 2021 and featured major artists like The Weeknd, PnB Rock, Gunna, Moneybagg Yo, Nas, Nav, Lil Uzi Vert, Big Sean, and Benny The Butcher. He followed that up with ‘Mumble Rap 2’ last year, featuring Nav, Rick Ross, and Gucci Mane. Now, Belly is gearing up to release his next album, and it’s arriving sooner than you might think.

Belly took to Twitter with a noteworthy announcement: ‘I got a lot more to say… 96 Miles From Bethlehem Tomorrow.’ Attached to the tweet was the album’s artwork and a significant promise: ‘profits from the album and merch will be donated to Gaza, the West Bank, and other affected areas around Palestine.’

This isn’t the first time Belly has been vocal about the conflict in Palestine; he’s been outspoken since last year. He’s not alone in his efforts—The Weeknd has also made considerable donations to the areas most affected by the ongoing conflict.

To coincide with the album announcement, Belly also released a new song called ‘Patience vs. Patients.’ The track targets government misinformation about the Palestinian conflict, continuing his vocal advocacy since the conflict escalated in October of last year.

The ongoing situation has put many celebrities in a challenging position when it comes to making public statements. Activists like Justin Bieber have also found themselves navigating these complex issues.

Belly’s new album, ’96 Miles From Bethlehem,’ is set to drop tomorrow, and its profits will go towards aiding affected areas in Palestine. Fans are eager to hear this new project and see who else might be featured on it.
