Get your Hollywood Noon on.

While Kid Cudi's "Day 'N' Nite" has become a staple for clued-in DJs the world over, the Cleveland rapper is anything but a one-hit wonder. Cudi is a stickler for details, constantly commenting on day-to-day life with a realist's perspective and singsong drawl. He's joined tonight by Hollywood Holt, the only Chicago MC with a septum piercing. On "Brains," Holt spits "If hip-hop's deceased / I'm the rhyme of the living dead / Walkin' really slow / with metaphors oozin' outta my head," criticizing his genre with cheeky attitude. Million $ Mano, Holt's main man on the production tip, has crafted surprising electro-tinged mashups of indie dance hits, some of which fill his set tonight.
