|Born as Edward Cortez Hines Jr. but, officially known in the
hood and, in any of the well-known hip hop Establishments in
Atlanta, Georgia as Eddie Hollywood.
Eddie Hollywood has always had a special affinity for music,
the church and understandably, hip-hop. He's actually been
rhyming since age of ten years old. Eddie Hollywood loves to
proclaim that he is the eldest male child and as well, the
third eldest of eight children.
His strongest desire however, has always been to be a good
strong role model and mentor to his younger brothers,
sisters, nieces and nephews but, had many-a-war to battle
and conquer in order to accomplish this great feat.
These days, Eddie Hollywood is proud to say that not only
does he have their full attention and respect [now] but, he
also states that, it is a huge honor: "This is something
that I feel that I was called to do anyway -win 'dem young
souls for the Lord - fa' sho... 'specially now, since I
know that I came strait outta the lion's den!"
The fact is, Eddie Hollywood did have a spiritual
up-bringing but, hadn't always lived up to those Godly
standards. He enjoyed playing football, he was an excellent
quarterback, reading, writing and spitting rhymes, and
sometimes his dad would even hire him to work for him as a
car detailer on the weekends.
Yet, somehow, around about the 9th grade, something went
drastically wrong. It was as if satan whispered into Eddie
Hollywood's ear and told him that fast, easy money was the
key to success therefore, lusting after the thug life became
And, although Eddie Hollywood did successfully graduate from
Riverdale High School In Jonesboro, Georgia, with good
grades, by graduation he had already spent time in prison.
Eddie Hollywood soon after decided that there was little or
no hope for a better life and, pursued a career as the
neighborhood dope boy to gain notoriety, respect and
He then, left Mt. Carmel Church where his family had been
members for years and came to the conclusion that, "this
church thing just ain't for me." After learning what he'd
thought to be all the tricks of the trade and, doing at
least four short more bids in prison,
God Got My Back
Eddie Hollywood soon realized that although he may have
turned his back on the Lord, God had certainly never turned
His back on him. By age 22, he was facing a ten year
sentence for felony charges of drugs and weapon possession,
violation of probation and, a few other misdemeanor charges.
Edward Hines also known as Boo-Man (drug dealing name) also
known as Eddie Hollywood (stage name) was level to the
Die in Sins
He had to make up in his mind that, either he was going to
quickly find his way back to God or, simply die in his sins
and, the air was getting pretty thin. One Wednesday evening,
miraculously the same week of another yet, final arrest, his
father invited him to Divine Faith Ministries International
(South) where the Pastors are Donald and Gwen Battle, which
are now his esteemed Pastors as well,
Eddie Hollywood being so moved during this spirit awaking
and soul stirring service, re-dedicated his life to his Lord
and Savior Jesus Christ and, joined Divine Faith Ministries
International that very evening.
Audio and Video
Immediately after, he also felt led to join a couple of
auxiliaries - the Audio and Video Production Ministries.
While serving God and never missing a service he was able to
receive revelation of the truths that, the gifts in which
God has blessed him with are without repentance, but must be
used to glorify the King.
Thus, receiving a new anointing to minister in Hip-Hop music
in less than a year and, also deriving from this new
inspiration as well, comes a mandate to gather in as many
youth as possible and lead them to the greatest light there
is, Jesus Christ.
For Eddie Hollywood knows that in Him there is life in
abundance, and without Him there are no musical talents, no
power to see lives changed and, no real unconditional
