RMXTP2 Liner Notes: "Hollywood"

Trackademicks and 1 O.A.K. “Hollywood” (Exclusive)

Honor Roll Call…
Introducing the Fre$hman, 1 O.A.K.!!!

Don’t Sleep… You might miss your new favorite producer/artist from your new favorite crew…For real though, 1 O.A.K. has been an integral part of this Honor Roll machine, producing Josie Stingray’s “Doin’ My Thang”, Spank Pops’ “Hangin’”, and Mike Baker The Bike Maker’s “The Chase”. Above is a photo of him in the Red Bull Big Tune producer battle... He repped the HR all the way to the finals in Seattle... And just like me, he isn’t held captive behind the boards. It was DJ Tap.10’s idea for me to flip this, so I decided to enlist 1 O.A.K. to bring it full circle. Be on the look out for much more from him very soon…

In my opinion, this is one of Sa-Ra’s dopest beats… Just the right amount of everything. A lot of folks are familiar with the Bilal version of the track, but aren’t up on the Sa-Ra vocal version. Mash that up with a reinterpolation of Chaka Khan & Rufus’ “Hollywood” and there you have it. A classic tale of a chick suckin’ on fame to maintain in the name game. And yes, if you’re stuck in the game, please wrap it up… STDs and unexpected children are the fastest way to take you out the game for a permanent vacation on the bench. Thank you for your cooperation!
