So, Ricky Hil is the son of fashion mogul Tommy Hillfiger, and his form of rebellion against his superwealthy dad was to get nine trillion tattoos and start a rap career. In terms of ways to rebel against your superwealthy dad, it’s not the worst idea, especially when you’re friends with the Weeknd and you can get him to drop one of his best verses yet on a track on your first mixtape, SYLDD. “Nomads” is a highlight thanks to an absolutely unreal verse from Abel Tesfaye, which thankfully takes up most of the song. Check it out – if you’re so inclined, you can stream the whole mixtape courtesy Noisey, too.
