Me and the girls on our way to the Fever to compete against the Fat Boys
Rebecca "Holly Hood" Scott was born in Harlem in New York City.  She wrote her first book at 10-years old; it was a collection of “mother” jokes.   Prior to becoming a published author, Rebecca worked 25 years in the hip-hop music industry.  

Professional Background

In the mid-Eighties, Rebecca competed for a record contract and loss to The Fat Boys in Tin Pan Apple’s talent show at the renowned Fever skate club in the Bronx.  But it was through the great Harry Belafonte who gave her first BIG break as a dancer in the early Hip-Hop movie, Beat Street (1984) that Rebecca's hip-hop career really jumpstarted.

By the mid-Nineties, Rebecca was managing her first hip-hop act, Main Source, a rap group from Canada who made the chart-topping ballad rap, Looking at the Front Door.  Over the years she has worked with such big names as BMG Records, Atlantic Records, Jive Records, Nervous Records, East/West Records, Tommy Boy Records EMI and Universal Records. In addition, she has worked with such Hip-Hop luminaries as famed Hip-Hop lawyer Bob Celestin, entrepreneur P. Diddy, Film Director George Tan, Planet Studios, Hip-Hop pioneer Sal Abbatiello, Hip-Hop Impresario Russell Simmons, rapper/actor Flavor Flav, Tupac Shakur, Universal President Sylvia Rhone and others.  As CEO of Great Scott Management, she represented dancehall artist, Mad Lion and rapper, KRS-1. In 1997, she collaborated with film director George Tan to bring Tupac Shakur’s story to the screen via the documentary, “Thug Immortal”.  In fact, Rebecca’s impetus to delve into the secret societies that run the entertainment business was piqued by Tupac’s last album, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.

In 2010, Rebecca received Divine instruction to write Hip-Hop Illuminati: How and Why the Illuminati Took Over Hip Hop.  Having recently completed her second book, REAL Hip Hop Gangsters, Music,  Money and Murder; she is currently at work on a book/film documentary entitled, The Thug Bible.  She is also in the studio mixing her rap, “Rap to My Son(s)", a poignant mother's plea to a son who doesn't realize the thug life is dead.  A talented and prolific writer, poet, chess player and percussionist, Rebecca lives in New York City with her two Rottweilers, Good and Evil.
