Produce HIP HOP with BEATLALIPOS

Beatlalipos is one of the current prominent figures in the Lebanese Hip Hop Scene.

As a rapper, Beatlalipos released many singles with the groups he formed in his career with one album and several mixtapes with his crew Jnood Beirut, releasing tracks like Bala Hawejiz, Bill Siyara, Kharfeh, and others.
