Hollywood Pompeii, business is great as he is one of the industry’s top videographers.
Joshua Bermudez, a.k.a. Hollywood Pompeii was born in Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY. Pompeii is good friends with D Chambers and Nems FYL as they all grew up in Coney Island. He got into rap after his mother brought The Fugees “The Score” album, it opened his eyes to rap, and that’s when he fell in love with rap.
At the age of 12, Pompeii was so into music and was determined to be a rapper that he wrote a letter to Diddy and Mase and mailed it to Bad Boy’s New York office, hoping to get noticed by them. He was inspired by Mase, who at the time was the #1 rapper in NYC. Realizing he needed a name, he decided to name himself Pompeii, and his cousin gave him the name Hollywood because he always acted Hollywood, so Hollywood Pompeii became his name.
After a few bad experiences, Pompeii decided to leave rapping alone and focus on the business side of the industry. Carlos Brown, who is a consultant for QC and Boosie, took Pompeii on the road with him for three years, and this is when he began to pick up his camera. Pompeii started to fall in love with filming and would do it whenever he had the chance. After some time and perfecting his craft, he began shooting music videos for artists such as Lil Boosie, Kevin Gates, Lil Baby, Casanova 2X, Meztheprod, Rob49, G9, PBE Pluto, and more.
Hollywood Pompeii has built himself from the bottom up and now he is shooting music videos for a lot of top names in the music industry. While building a successful career as a videographer, Pompeii hopes to put his son in the position to take over and continue his legacy one day.
