Next she introduced Holl(ie)wood who was my favorite performance of the night. I can’t really put my finger on it but it was a combination of his moves (and dancers), an intense gaze and a presence that that drew your eyes to the stage. He also had strong lyrics, they departed from the norm. - Rock Out NY

[Brooklyn Keeps On Takin' It]...Here's an '08 anthem for you Brooklynites.... - Rock The Dub (Khal Dub)


The debut single from Brooklyn’s Holliewood is hella old school, and it’s not just the Fresh Prince haircut and boombox. “Brooklyn Keeps on Takin In” is a practical homage to classic hip hop, with shout-outs to KRS-One, and pretty much every neighborhood in BK (”We got Fort Greene, [...]

Bio

Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Holliewood is a driven, passionate and charismatic artist with a unique approach to his blend of hip-hop.  His music is all about connecting with listeners through high-energy release, uplifting melodies, and a thought-provoking lyrical flow, not unlike influential performers such as Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Outkast or 2Pac, among others.  When not busy performing, Holliewood is also a podcast host on the Hampton Blu Network. His show, "Holliewood & Friends" counting over 20.000 followers and it is constantly growing its fan base. Along with his co-hosts, Venor and Miss Juddy, Holliewood treats listeners to some of the finest hip-hop sounds on the scene as well as interviewing several celebrities and other important personalities. 

Music is a big thing in many people’s lives. We all can relate to the feeling of being connected to a melody or a groove, as well as being inspired and entertained. The one thing that truly makes the difference, is the stories that music brings forth. Some are shallow and superficial, while others are deep, meaningful and honest. Holliewood makes music that definitely belongs to the former categories, adding the weight and depth of experience to his original tracks. 

Among his recent musical achievements, Holliewood performed for thousands of people at the Howard University's Yard Fest, just like Kanye West and Jay Z did before him! He was also highlighted as a "Who's Next Spotlight Artist" on rocawear.com, as he consistently receives praise and acclaim for his releases, including single "No Sleep Til Brooklyn", which is on rotation on Power 105.1. Holliewood is a favorite of radio audiences and concert goers, as he performs through the local music scene, rocking the best NYC venues

With a passion for great lyrics and social outreach, Holliewood wants to inspire his listeners and fans to embrace their true personality - becoming their own individuals and raising their own voice. Through his art, Holliewood shares a timeless message of freedom and personality that deeply resonates with a large audience that transcends the boundaries of the hip-hop music scene. As a musician, Holliewood's attitude focuses on embracing his own individuality: this is what makes his music and his character different and special, representing the East Coast hip-hop scene with class and momentum.
