DJ Hollywood

DJ Hollywood

D.J. Hollywood’s career began in 1971. A native of Harlem, New York, he was one of the first dj’s to ever blend music with rhyme to help create what is now a billion dollar industry. His versatility is unsurpassed and he is known to be the foremost rhyme master on the microphone and treacherous on the wheels of steel, a phrase he coined, among others in the hip hop vernacular. He turned the world on its ear to the new art form that is now called Hip Hop when he was hired at Club 371 in the Bronx. D.J. Hollywood is a legend throughout the entertainment industry as well as locally as the ‘go to’ man whenever you want your party rocked and your affair to be memorable. D.J. Hollywood has brought joy to millions over the years and he isn’t through yet. He is truly in his words, “the best that ever did it who got away with it.”

He mentored a few dj’s namely the late, great Junebug and D.J. Small. D.J.Hollywood has travelled the country doing various gigs and they include:
