Young people have every right to express themselves artistically however they choose, but when a super rich white kid starts rapping about drugs and how much of a hard ass he is, it’s a little unsettling. Especially if you know for an absolute, undeniable fact that he is a rich kid from Connecticut. Check out Rich Hil everybody, he’s the hardest thing to hit the hip-hop scene since Average Homeboy.
He’s the son of Tommy Hilfiger. Like the bajillionaire fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, who probably lives in a khaki covered mansion in Connecticut. His son, Rich, decided to become a rapper. Because the privileged life gets hard sometimes and hip-hop is the only thing that can pull you through. We’d have an easier time getting behind this, or at least understanding if Rich Hil had the foresight to come up with some sweet backstory. Like maybe his father kicked him out of the house and sent him to live with his poor estranged aunt in the Bronx. Give us something Rich Hill.
If you’re going to try and come out of nowhere carrying the bad boy image, you should’ve done a better job. And definitely, get this video of your baby face and unmarked skin doing what you do in every video — smoking weed and warbling around with your black friends and some vapid rich chicks.
How did you go from a blank canvas to Weezy tattoo status in less than two years? Oh, right, you spent your trust fund money at the tattoo shop, and you had the time to get all that work done, because you don’t have to work at Starbucks to save up for studio time like most musicians do.
Enjoy it while it lasts, nerd. Pretty soon the sound of people laughing at you will get so loud you might actually hear it.
