DJ Hollywood

DJ Hollywood (born December 10, 1954) is an American old school hip hop MC, and is reported to be the originator of the term hip hop. He first came to prominence just as disco was becoming popular, and he soon became one of the most-indemand performer of the nascent hip hop culture. Until the mid-1980s, Hollywood was one of the top DJs; he then retired and fought drug addiction. He has since returned to performing in the New York City area.
