Quality Control’s Jordan Hollywood samples Timbaland produced Bubba Sparxxx single “Ugly” for his own latest release, “The Ugly Song.” As a veteran in the rap game, working as a writer and collaborating with producers, Hollywood is now showcasing his cutthroat rhymes and lively energy. The accompanying music video gives viewers a front row seat into the mind of the artist, equipped with a variety of fun and quirky skits.
“The Ugly Song” gives a modern twist to a classic sound. The nostalgic bass and synths are consistent throughout the track, along with the high pitched vocals screaming, “Ugly, ugly ugly.” Hollywood’s bars cascade over the fast paced rhythm. He raps, “ My team workin’ hard feel like Lamar because I owe dem / Yeah you got some hits can’t even lie, shoutout who wrote ‘em / Snitches they get stitches, they gon’ pick ‘em up and sew ‘em / Snakes all in my grass, gotta go outside and mow ‘em.” Each verse blends into the next, calling out his songwriting capabilities and demanding respect in the industry.
Hailing from Broward County, Florida, Hollywood is the next in line of diverse rappers with an uncommon sound. Following his Quality Control Music debut with “Let Me Find Out,” the rapper went on tour with labelmate, Lil Baby. With a Timbaland co-sign and collaborations with platinum record producers, Jordan Hollywood is on the fast track to stardom and a staple on hip-hop playlists.
