Miami recording artist Shottie latest release, Hollywood compares the rap game to Tinseltown shouting out classic movie directors like Hitchcock and Kubrick. Hollywood produced by TeV95 features Itagui from 2X Grammy nominated Latin group Locos Por Juana, known by many as "Latin-reggae-hip-hop masters".
This is a more raw organic angle to Hip Hop but after the studio crispness of the first video I wanted to switch it up.
