Trap Phone
by Belly (featuring Jadakiss)

  • Belly hooked up with one of his heroes, Jadakiss, for this track. The New York rapper spits the second verse, in which he echoes the swagger of Belly's rhymes about his narcotic-dealing cell phone.
  • Belly had had Jadakiss in mind when he was working on the track and was pumped up the first time he heard his verse.

    "Oh, man! I laughed for like the next week every time I heard the song," he told Billboard magazine. "I'd just laugh to myself. It was to the point I was doing listening sessions and people be looking at me like, 'You're really excited about this Jada verse.' I'm like, 'Hell yeah!'

    Ever since I was young, he's one of the ones that definitely sharpened my sword in terms of lyricism, bars, and just all around what he's brought to the culture."
