Tommy Hilfiger's son

Back when I used to check all the different hip-hop and rap blogs like illroots and Hot New Hip Hop, I always saw lots of different music and it exposed me to a lot of artists that I still listen to and follow to this day. One of them being a rap style singer named Ricky Hil, who is actually Tommy Hilfiger’s son.

I remember liking his music from the first listen because it was so different to everything else that I was hearing. At the time, I didn’t realize he was related to Tommy Hilfiger, not that it matters, but it’s just interesting.

Now his stuff kind of reminds me of Peep, but not exactly sonically. His subject matter is similar, for sure. There’s a lot of talk about drugs and girls and heartbreak. Same kind of themes that we know so well from the late Lil Peep.

If Ricky’s still making music, he’s being really quiet. I don’t see anything new on Spotify, but I am still listening to him. His project Support Your Local Drug Dealer, aka SYLDD, is great. You can listen to that project from top to bottom without any issue. There’s just one track on the album that I’m not super into, The Professional. If you listen you’ll know why. It’s just a little too graphic for me, but whatever.
