Back in the 70s, the King of New York’s Hip Hop scene who spat hustler and party rap in a fly sharkskin suit was DJ Hollywood.

He was an emcee and a DJ; opening the doors for DJs like Lovebug Starsky, Kid Capri, and Biz Markie and rappers like Doug E. Fresh and Kurtis Blow. He epitomized control of the crowd and party rocking by bridging clubbing and the streets.
