HXLT - TOP BANNER

Born in Chicago to a multi-ethnic musical family, Holt was raised listening to Led Zeppelin, Smokey Robinson, 2Pac, The Clash, and countless other artists from various genres. He developed a love for art, culture and fashion at a young age which paved the way for his future ventures in music and design.

Holt started out rapping with his friends, eventually taking the name Hollywood Holt. He had a quick blow up early in his rap career, but was not yet fulfilled. He had interests in other types of music but found himself without the ability to make them. Holt ran into Kanye West at a venue in New York and was invited to a studio session. He shared his music with Kanye and the rest is history, Holt signed to West’s G.O.O.D. record label in April of 2014.

Holt is one of the few serious renaissance men in music. He’s a fighter, a formidable rapper, a director and a great entertainer. Holt’s sound is a mix of melodic minimal chords, strings and guitars paired with hard and gritty beats.
