More About the Author
AUTHOR'S NOTE: Why do all of my works have a spiritual lean? Because it is to a merciful God that I owe every breath I take, every step I make and every day I awake.
THANK YOU LORD FOR EVERYTHING.
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.
In the mid-Eighties, Rebecca competed for a record contract and lost 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 jump-started.
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, hip hop photographer, Ernie Paniccioli, Public Enemy's Professor Griff and Flavor Flav, Tupac Shakur, rapper YO YO, 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.
Fall from Grace
In the late 90s, Rebecca met and befriended a very wealthy woman who offered her "the world" but instead used her to get into the then-thriving hip hop music business. It would be events that occurred as a result of this introduction that culminated with Rebecca spending 10 years in federal prison for drug trafficking. While incarcerated Rebecca received Divine Instruction to write her first book, Hip-Hop Illuminati, a revealing exposé of those entertainers and record company execs who are now or have worked for (or were members of) the Illuminati to secure their success.
Shortly before her release in 2010, Rebecca gave her life to Christ Jesus. That same year she completed her signature work, "Hip Hop Illuminati" which chronicled her ascension in the ranks of the hip hop music business and her subsequent downfall. Many say the character, "Cookie" on the popular TV Show, "Empire" is based on Rebecca's REAL life.
Following nights of torment Rebecca received the vision to write, Real Hip Hop Gangsters, a chronology of the REAL thugs in hip-hop and the over 100 murders (some of which have never been publicized) that were directly attributed to hip hop artists (many whom have also never stood trial). Always obedient to her assignment, which she believes is to educate and forewarn, she wrote, "The Price of Fame" about the "Hollywood" side of the fame game. The follow-up, work, The Manipulation of America shows how we are manipulated daily by Hollywood, the media, the government, corporations and even each other. Her next book, A New World Order breaks down the Illuminati agenda and how after years of planning and manipulation by the "elite" we have finally entered into a new world order. A Sci-Fi novella, Space OPs Trilogy, gives a chillingly realistic scenario of a takeover of Earth by aliens. Her autobiography, The Thug Bible, chronicles how she built a REAL EMPIRE as it details how she went from hustling to hip hop to holy. Violator 4 Life - The Chris Lighty Story is about her friend, Chris Lighty, one of the nicest guys in hip hop. This work questions his supposed suicide. Satan's Emissary, The Unauthorized Biography of Boxing Promoter Don King is the story of one of the rise of one of the most famous promoters in boxing history. Psychological Warfare, a deeper look into the mechanisms the government uses to manipulate public opinion through social media and Monarch mind control methods. The long anticipated, Satan's Children - Celebrities who have sold their Souls for Fame goes into the actual rituals performed in the dark studio lots, bedrooms and secret places of elite Hollywood. The End Time Prophecies is based on the book of Revelations in the Bible. Lead Me Not Into Temptation is a chillingly accurate description of the many devices Satan uses to get inside people's heads and MAKE us SIN. The bone-chilling, Real Bad Girls Club is a history of women who have committed violent crimes. The controversial, Biblical Views on Homosexuality is a look at what scripture says about being "gay." A Biblical View on Smoking Weed is written from the perspective of a former pothead (Rebecca) is sure to light some fires. Katt Williams: The Road to Hell chronicles comedian Katt Williams life's journey and struggles. Hell's Bells is a frighteningly realistic look into demonic possession. A story about one of the most controversial families in history, The Kennedys: Blessed or Cursed is an important historical read. The Deprogramming of Black America was long overdue, yet right on time as it chronicles lessons history has taught the black race and the lessons it has yet to learn. Rebecca herself says, "As regards the Deprogramming of Black America, I believe that the past, present and future all exist on some plain at the same time, and that the words and energy of the many great men and women that inspired this book will forever be a light and a tribute to the Africans and people of African descent that both walked before us and continue to walk with us, as we form this discipline of the mind needed to deprogram this generation of Black America." Fake Blood is the TRUE story of Rebecca's search for her daughter, a Bloods gang member, whereby she went undercover in the Bloods gang. A-Z Women of the Bible is a chronological account of the 189 women mentioned by name in the Bible. To date, Rebecca has written 30+ books and still counting. Her upcoming titles include:
(1) "Brooklyn Cougar", the TRUE story of an oversexed older woman who cruises social media in search of young studs until her bad lifestyle choice catches up with her.
(2) "For the Love of Money" is a compilation of vignettes that chronicle people whose wealth got them in trouble and in some cases cost their lives.
(3) "Six Foot Seven, the Rise and Fall of Lil' Wayne" is the story of a young street kid from Magnolia Projects in New Orleans who grew up to become one of the most successful rap artists in the music industry.
(4) "Culture Shock" is an exciting, hilarious and enlightening look into what makes us all so different and so very much alike.
(5) "Insanely Famous" is the TRUE story of celebrities who have (and currently) suffer from mental illness.
A humble servant of God, in 2012, Rebecca recorded a hip hop track entitled, "Rap to My Son(s)", which is a poignant mother's plea to the sons of this generation who do not realize that these are precarious times we are living in and warns of the pitfalls that await the young and foolish. Rebecca continues to write is determined to become Amazon's most prolific author.
An inexhaustible writer, historian, poet, chess player, percussionist, violinist and a compassionate friend and advocate of children, animals and the downtrodden; Rebecca lives in New York City.
