DNA results from the two year rape trial of DJ Hollyhood Bay Bay do not match the industry veteran, AllHipHop.com has confirmed.
Hollyhood Bay Bay, real name Terrance Stewart, was arrested in 2007 and charged with one count of rape and intimidation of a witness.
According to prosecutors, the DJ raped a woman who was found drunk and unconscious on the second floor of club Kokopelli’s, located in Shreveport, Louisiana.
The ensuing DNA test used semen retrieved from the alleged victim, and the couch where the crime occurred.
“I believe everything happens for a greater reason and purpose. I was terminated from one station, only to be recruited by the fourth largest black radio station in the country, so there are no hard feelings,” DJ Hollyhood Bay Bay told AllHpHop.com. “I’m just ready to conclude this chapter in my life and get back to what I do, finding the next multiplatinum success story.
Bay Bay previously gained national recognition courtesy of Hurricane Chris’ hit tribute song “Ay Bay Bay,” which was inspired by fans who would chant the DJ’s name at club appearances.
The rape accusation has proved damaging to Hollyhood’s career over the last two years.
The fallout resulted in him being terminated from his position at Shreveport’s 103.5 The Beat, and losing his longtime club MC position at Kokopelli’s.
He later signed on to Dallas’ KKDA 104.5, and maintains a weekly radio slot from 3PM from 7PM.
Despite the serious accusation that has lingered over his head, DJ Hollyhood Bay Bay feels he’s been blessed with a better opportunity in Dallas and is hopeful the charges will soon be dropped.
“This entire situation is unfortunate, but all I can do is continue to live my life until it is over and I am fully cleared of all charges,” added DJ Bay Bay.
Since relocating to Dallas, the DJ assisted rapper Dorrough in closing a deal with E1 Music.
On the community service front, he founded Bay Bay’s Kids, which aims to decrease high school dropout rates through education-focused speaking engagements and camps.
At press time, Caddo Parish District Attorney Brady O’Callaghan has not dropped the rape charges against DJ Hollyhood Bay Bay.
