Hollywood Holt talks about his rapping style, fashion and upcoming album

Chicago hip hop artist Hollywood Holt has been an unstoppable source of energy (literally) since he first emerged in Chicago's rap scene about seven years ago, and has earned him international buzz. Combining wit and humor in his rhymes, Holt is known for straightforward old-school delivery style in the vein of rappers like Special Ed.

After several years of writing and polishing new material, his new album is nearing completion, and a new single "The Show" is out and available for free download. Hollywood Holt joins Jesse Menendez on Vocalo's MusicVox to talk about his old school style of rapping, views on fashion and new album.
