Notion: Selected by Joey Clipstar

Posted on: June 5th, 2021

In 2011, Joey Clipstar founded Hardest Bars, still the number one hotspot for seeking out urban music talent. The now 29-year-old moved swiftly on to Link Up TV, climbing up the ranks and becoming a driving force on Behind Bars, a music show which has met infinite praise.


The South Londoner has worked with the likes of Drake, J Hus, Stormzy, Cadet, Fredo, Russ, and Stefflon Don, many of whom weren’t big on the scene when Joey found them. Now, they’re superstars. No wonder Joey’s built a name for himself as a tastemaker.


Now, Joey Clipstar’s third season of Hardest Bars Freestyles has lift-off. To usher in the season he has exclusively shared with Notion his pick of the best freestylers that have graced the show so far.
