- ― MC Clip
Cray, referred to as by his rap name MC Clip, is a famous rapper based in Los Santos, San Andreas. He appears to be heavily criticized by fans and the media for being a "fake" rapper, as described by Tavell Clinton. Cray has released three unnamed albums that were mentioned, and has a fourth upcoming album, entitled The All New Messiah.
Parts of his persona appear to be based on that of rapper Kanye West who, like MC Clip has proclaimed himself a genius and professed to be "a god" similar to Clip. His album The All New Messiah is likely based on Kanye West's album Yeezus which features the song "I Am a God". West also hails from Chicago, Illinois as does Clip's voice actor J. Wells.
His appearance and apparel is similar to that of rapper 50 Cent during the early 2000's.
Events of GTA V
MC Clip is first mentioned on the cover of West Coast Classics Magazine, as he was recently interviewed by them in the article Bigger than World Peace. He states that he intends on stopping war, and recalls his recent 3 hour concert in Los Santos.
MC Clip appears briefly during the mission Hood Safari, in which he is encountered in the Los Santos Canal with many bikini-clad women filming a music video, while Trevor Philips, Franklin Clinton and Lamar Davis escape the pursuing police. The trio steal three Seasharks being used by MC Clip while he throws a party.
It is possible to kill MC Clip during the mission without direct consequence. However, regardless of the player's actions, the Los Santos Shepherd newspaper will always announce that MC Clip was killed in the firefight between the Families and the Ballas. Despite this, he still posts on Bleeter after the mission, suggesting that he has, in fact, survived the gunfight. Both pieces of information contradict each other, resulting in an oversight in the game.
