You would be forgiven for assuming that Tommy Hilfiger's son is someone who wears cable knit sweaters, smells like sea breeze, drinks Pimms and plays polo. In actual fact Ricky Hil is far removed from the all-American image associated with his father's label. Instead, he has more tattoos than a Myspace scene queen, a history of drug-related charges, and a bourgeoning R&B career.

Signed to Warner, Ricky Hil (who previously went under the moniker Rich Hil) has released a collaborative track called 'Nomads' with his pal Abel Tesfaye, otherwise known as The Weeknd. Appearing on Ricky Hil's debut album SYLDD, which seems to have a focus on prescription drug use, 'Nomads' is basically just a Weeknd song with a few cameo verses from Ricky who waxes lyrical about coedine and punching someone in the face:

Ricky Hil has also worked with Kid Cudi in the past, so it will be interesting to see where this all goes. For some reason I forsee the involvement of one Skrillex in the near future.
