This song "Hollywood" is an exposure of an underlying trend that has secretly made it's way through the Hip Hop industry.
According to PH, "Man I have seen artist straight up walk past fans that made them what they are without one shred of acknowledgment. It's sad actually, the whole acting like your too busy to acknowledge a fan is played. Your not that important!
I have seen friends of mine [in the music business] act totally different when the machine is hot. I will never ignore a fan (friend) or treat those that I consider peers differently, because of my status in the game.
This is not a diss record. This is asking, "HEY!! Do you realize how you're acting is what you used to make fun of and be repulsed by, when you were struggling on the come up?"
This is not directed at any one person, but it is an eye opener. Take a look at yourself. If you find this offensive, then I'm right. You are truly 'Hollywood'."
The complete project "KNOW The LEDGE", a street album of all new exclusive original music from PH, will drop later this summer, on MCMI Records.

Following String of Performances With XV, Rockwell Introduces His Bullet Train Army To The World
Rockwell Knuckles has certainly been living life in the fast lane. Since dropping his latest album, You're Fucking Out, I'm Fucking In, the talented MC has released a behind-the-scenes video, guest featured on a variety of projects, and recently finished a series of performances with XV and Casey Veggies, the last of which was in his hometown of St. Louis on the 4th of July. With all that, Rockwell has no plans to slow down either, and his new single "Bullet Train Army" is a testament to his unyielding drive for success. This synthy, anthemic track showcases Rockwell's lyricism as he introduces the world to his "Bullet Train Army." Clever lines like "Onlookers loving the lifestyle we leading/ That's because every record you can hear my soul bleeding," and "Every lane is us see, total solidarity/ Meaning it's a business, this is not a charity," turn into declarations when paired with the production's escalating synthesizer and epically rising hook.
