Belly, born Ahmad Balshe, released the star-studded tracklist for his album on Instagram Wednesday night. The rapper’s guest features include the aforementioned Nav and The Weeknd, along with Meek Mill, French Montana, Metro Boomin’, M.I.A. and Yo Gotti. Belly is currently signed to The Weeknd’s XO record label. Check out the full tracklist above.

In a recent interview with Hot 97, Belly spoke about the album’s themes and his desire to shine a light on immigration policies around the globe. “That was like the focal point of the album and the realities of it,” he said. The common denominator that people goes through is the government. People want to group everything into one thing — I’ll never say I got a problem with Israel. I got a problem with the Israeli government.”

In a separate interview with Uproxx, the rapper revealed why he’s released so much music (three mixtapes) over the past few years. “This is just the natural process of my being, man. This is why I’m here and I know that,” he explained.

“This all I do, man. This is what I’m driven to do every day because to me there’s nothing else,” he added. “This is what it is and the fact that I was gifted enough and blessed enough to be born with a gift like this, I’ll never stand in the way of the powers that be by not using my talent every day.”
