Hollywood Holt Coming to A Small Screen Near You?

Well, his music might be…

In an article entitled ‘Your next obsessions: TV’s top music supervisors pick their favorite new artists’, Entertainment Weekly interviewed a handful of television big wigs, in particular PJ Bloom (Glee, CSI: Miami, Nip/Tuck, United States of Tara), who dubbed Hollywood Holt, alongside Million $ Mano and Mic Terror, among the next big things in “radio for the TV”

Check:

Hollywood Holt: “If you like hip-hop, mopeds and James Brown-like live performances, you’re gonna love Hollywood Holt. Kanye [West] blogged the video for his single ‘Hollywood’ in late 2008, and now he’s on the 2009 Lollapalooza bill. Holt is part of this whole scene with Mic Terror and Million Dollar Mano. It’s like the next generation, post-Lupe Fiasco thing. And he also heads this moped club. Very sharp dressed, very much from the street. I really like the track ‘Swerve n Lean.’”

Now that’s a good look, fellas.
