At some point in life, in between touching random objects and eating things that we probably shouldn’t eat, we're usually taught a thing or two about not judging a book by its cover. Some remember the lesson, most forget, and even less learn to use it to their advantage. Houston, Texas rapper Hollywood FLOSS falls into the small percentage; loving to shock people with his intricate word play, FLOSS feels most comfortable residing behind the element of surprise, for bringing something different with his music than his name – or his hometown – might suggest. And no where is that more evident than on his forthcoming album, One Fan At A Time, which will be released on September 20th and offered to fans for free download
Before giving fans a glimpse of the new album, though, FLOSS is getting fans a few non-album tracks, the first of which is "Attack Of Hollywood." Following the example of label mate Dustin Prestige, FLOSS tackles production from go-to-guy Chris Rockaway, producer who, as FLOSS explains it, "is not afraid to push his creative limits." "I wanted to make a song that played off of my stage name and that has more than one layer,” says FLOSS. “The song takes place in a movie theater, and it puts me inside a story as I tell the story.” Playing off the track's title, FLOSS incorporates flips wordplay-filled verses that name-check a variety of Hollywood actors and entertainers in rewind-worthy fashion. "Looking for Sharon’s Stone, I fell down Brad’s Pitt," raps FLOSS. "Couldn’t move, so I Ben Stilled for a minute.”
