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”
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.
Directed by Takeover TV. Track produced by The Legendary Traxster.
We haven’t heard much from E-Dub lately, but hey, that sure looks like a fun porch party. Not quite the Playboy Mansion , but what is?

GLC and Crucial Conflict’s Cold Hard hook up for a track from GLC’s upcoming mixtape, Respect My Come Up, hosted by the one and only Iron Mike Tyson.
GL recorded this banger while Cold Hard was in Atlanta a few weeks ago…and what we have is the follow up to their first collabo “I Tried”.
Respect My Come Up will be dropping in the very near future and it’s shaping up very nicely.
Update: This track was produced by K-Salaam & Beatnik
GLC feat. Cold Hard – “A Gangstaz Nature”
Because you know their last collaboration is a Chicago classic, and I’ll put my stamp on that claim.
