Joshua A Beale is an American Hip-Hop recording artist that goes by the stage name Clip.
Clip is known for his aggressive flow and his creative punch lines.
Born in Atlanta Georgia to a single mother, Clip spent a large portion of his childhood moving around city to city with his mother and two older brothers. When Clip was 10-years old, they settled down in a small city just north of Atlanta called Buford, and it was at that time that he began to show his passion towards the Hip-Hop culture.
Clip would spend hours listening and studying the likes of Ludacris, DMX, and T.I., who would ultimately inspire him to act on his passion and pursue a music career.
It wasn’t until Clip was eleven years old that he met his longtime friend and business partner Travielle Johnson, who ultimately teamed up with him to create the dynamic duo 2 Deep.
Clip would eventually leave 2 Deep after receiving a full basketball scholarship to Anderson University in South Carolina. It was in college that Clip would hit his stride and release monster hits such as “Muggin like you Buck,” “Smile in ya Face,” “War” and “My Homie.”
After college Clip moved back to Buford GA where he began to perfect his craft and develop his mantra. His style became so attractive in northeast Georgia, that some of the best artists in the area started reaching out to him to collaborate on tracks, mixtapes and albums.
Clip believed that more voices could be more powerful than one, and that’s when he and his brother started the indie label we know today as “Monstar Records.”
Monstar Records has become the household label in Northeast GA, led by Clip.
Nowadays Clip can be seen performing at numerous nightclubs and recently released the hit mixtape “Guillotine” that can be purchased online or in store. “Guillotine” features the hit songs “Get Down” and “Why the F##k” They Mad” featuring Skippa Da Flippa.
Clip continues to send waves through the northeast portion of Georgia and is on his way to becoming the next big musician from the Atlanta market.
