The album was teased numerous times late 2017, with the album title then being "Midnight Zone". Belly also shared in studio images of himself working alongside Jay-Z, which speculated the two working on a song together.

I performed the best show of my life, on 4/20 at Coachella ‼️I really came from nothing, and I’m still here.. it’s gotta mean something."[4] The album was officially announced on social media on September 2, 2018, with a new album title and an official release date, where he stated the following; "With everything going on, I can’t sit by and say nothing. I decided to speak my truths. my album is now called || IMMIGRANT || out on October 12 || xotwod || RN" [5]
