Philly’s own rapper Tommy Hill was shot and killed over the weekend. Tommy Hill was the head of the rap group Ram Squad. Hill was shot Friday around 1:30am while exiting Rueban’s bar on Stenton Ave. He was ambushed by 3 assailants that opened fire on Hill. He was shot in the chest and lower body, Hill was rushed to Einstein Hospital and due to complications passed away Sunday morning. Tommy Hill was 36 years old.
Tommy was a well known and liked Philly rapper known for reppin his city and the Richard Allen projects as the corner stone from where it all began. The Ram Squad had a few hits and even went on tour with Nelly. Tommy’s ride to the top fizzled out, some blame it on the lack of support from his record label. Tommy wasn’t able to completely remove himself from his environment or circumstances so he went back to hustling.
Alleged ties with mob boss Merlino ,rumored cooperating with the boys in blue, and doing a two year bid made perfect sense for him to stay in ATL where he resided after his release, to start fresh and leave the pass behind. Having a target on his back….. many people are asking why would he return to Philly so soon and, hanging out in Reuben’s were so many fr-enemies frequent. It was a sad day when I heard he was hit up out there, and painful to hear that he crossed over to the other side. John Wilson aka Tommy Hill you will be missed MAY YOUR SOUL BE COMFORTED
