The countdown To HipHopDX At SXSW: Ant Beale
Meet Dirty "Taurus" rapper Ant Beale performed at HipHopDX's SWSW showcase.
Originally getting its beginnings as a photographer in the South Jersey native Ant Beale wants nothing but positive vibrations to get out of your music. With the help of music producer Charlie Heat, which worked in collaboration with Kanye West, The Life Of Paul, Beale released his debut EP, there's No Rain there are No Flowers in 2017. His most recent releases include a remix of her song "Sunshine", with nothing less than positivity of the preaching of the BasedGod, Lil B.
