RIP Tommy Hill, Rapper Shot And Killed In Philly

 

Hip-Hop has lost another soldier…Allhiphop.com has reported that rapper Tommy Hill (government name: John Wilson) a member of the group R.A.M. Squad, was shot and killed in Philadelphia.

AllHipHop.com released the following details of the shooting….

The source told AllHipHop.com that robbery was the motive, although there could have been any number of reasons behind his murder, due to his criminal background and alleged association with the mob.

Late Thursday, early Friday morning, the rapper was coming out of a bar named Reuben’s Marc, which is located on Stenton Avenue and Mount Pleasant in the Uptown area of Philadelphia.

“He was in a bar having a good time and after they shot him and robbed him,” a confidential source told AllHipHop.com. “The dudes he was with shot back, security came out and it was hectic situation.”

Although it cannot be confirmed, the source said that Tommy Hill was alive after the shooting on Thursday. But he died from his wounds in a Philadelphia hospital, sometime over the weekend.

This is not the first time Tommy Hill has faced trouble, 2003 he was charged with selling 51 grams of cocaine to a wired government witness, on top of that he was involved with Philly’s first “weapons of mass destruction” trail. You might also remember him from going at Beanie Sigel, or the time he attacked a woman at Wal-Mart.

It’s unfortunate that many will remember him for these criminal headlines instead of his rap career.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. RIP.
