Hip-Hop Rumors: Philly Rap Snitching Rumors!

I can’t lie. I don’t really know the Philly rap scene all crazy like that anymore, but my people do. So, they hit me with this rumor. I don’t know if it matters to you, but its definitely worthy of a mention for people around the way. Here is exactly what they sent me, word for word.

“So (Philly rapper) Boy Backs performed upstairs at The Trocodero (Philly club). Artists have to PAY to perform. So he’s the headliner and he’s following some cats from Delaware. The Delaware cats had brought a good crowd. Backs brought one person as his hype man. I couldn’t believe the Ram Squad has fallen so hard. So he comes out and performs first over “Kurtis Blow’s The Breaks” then “Just Ice” then one other old school beat which has his vocals on there. So the whole crowd leaves because he’s old enough literally to be their parents. He gets mad throws a fit and leaves. It was sad but just he’s a certified snitch so no old heads want  him around in Philly and young cats have no clue about Ram Squad. It was possibly the worse fall off ever.”

I gotta say I cannot speak on these allegations so I goggled it.

And here is the video of him admitting to the allegations and I remember I posted this. Wow…to many rumors ago.

  • Eli Pinilla

    You lien snitchin fool. How you say your set your man up cuz you thought he set you up yet if he was an informant the cops wouldn’t ask you to set him up cuz he would’ve already been caught by them for him to be able to inform on you in the first place?!?!?!?……and Nggz in philly let this man be out there like that doin shows??? I’m a little surprised by that one

    • Real spill, I didn’t even peep game like that, and based it on his man trying to look out for him?

      • Eli Pinilla

        The dude got caught on his own and brought his boy down with him to save his own ass. His boy ended up turning snitch too, but they kilt him…..All that cuz he was scared to lose his house and kids that he shouldn’t of had drugs around in the first place…

      • Looks like he wouldn’t have had that house, wife & kids without the drugs around.


      • Eli Pinilla

        I’m sure the work helped him get there….but you don keep the work in the house you live in. At least not if you get to the point where you can afford a house you scared of losing.

        yeah you not supposed to shyt where you eat … but plenty people get soft and think IT CANT HAPPEN TO THEM right before it happens to them

        looks like he was better off in a studio apt lmao

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        Tommy wasnt killed over the snitching…. he came home and was trying to get back to the street shit…. new crop of youngings and shit out there, he even went to Beans neighborhood and was popping shit about Beans when Sigel was out of state…. do dirt… get done dirty… he thought he was still Tommy Hill from back in the day

    Everybody in here be talking tough. That’s is until they involve ur wife and kids

    • Don’t do the deed if you can’t handle the consequences.
      Don’t risk what you aren’t prepared / willing to lose.

      • EniggaMA

        easy to say. when you do dirt u know what could go down. your expecting you to take any fall for what u do not ur family. now this is assuming u don’t have ur family involved in anyway shape or form. if he did well than ur right shame on him. now the cops did some dirty sh!t to him and i don’t expect any man right or wrong not to do what he did.

      • You have to expect them to do dirt to you or the closest one to you…if they can’t get you.

        Moral of the story = If you a family man, be that, leave the dirt alone.

        If you in the game for all it’s worth IE: Shoot outs for clout & blocks of turf, you have to take the good with the bad.

        Message to those mixing family & dirt =
        Once you get on your feet, to keep your family safe…keep your dirt in the street.

      • EniggaMA

        You can’t expect people just not to have families. Maybe niggas shouldn’t deal with people with families for this might happen. I’ll except that

      • Of course they shouldn’t, nor should they deal with Ninjaz that have chemical habits.
        Coke & dope sniffers, junkies, etc.
        Then again, some Ninjaz is just rats.
        The bigger they are, the harder they squeal, and it won’t be long, before they offer you up for a deal.

        Them boys will cuff your momz….just to show you what THUGLIFE can be about!

        I remember watching first 48 as soon as the detective talk about time, thats when the crying and singing starts…..cats be sobbing thinking bout that life hanging over their heads.
        like they say if you cant do the time, dont do the crime

      • As one homey put it “We chose this life.”

        HUH? I asked, as ‘chet gets lost in translation with him…

        “Nobody forced us to chose this life.”

        It took a while, but I realized what he meant.

        Just as easy as a Ninja got put on, he could have taken steps to improve himself otherwise.

        i look back on life – i should have stayed playing ball in college

      • DollasTX

        message to those mixing family & dirt …

        you and/or your family end up under the dirt!

      • Best bet is to learn from the comments…rather than the badman!

  • Foul…..real foul

  • Guillaume Pilon

    dont know who he is

    and yeah hes old enough to be our grand father

    he snitched = you failed

  • Joe Lovick

    Tommy Hill been dead 3 years now…either a old ass video or poor attempt to get attention….. for the record they both snitched… boy snitched on Tommy who in returned snitched on skinny Joe (real mob guy) who fronted all the Richard Allen cats with every drop of dope being pushed.

    • Chris

      That video came out while Tommy Hill was still alive.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      and supposely tommy comspired with this guy to make the video…. supposely ….

      • GQ


      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        lol thanks!

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        boy backs made this video because whwen they all got back out on the street and Tommy was still alive, Tommy was catching a lot of heat behind the snitching thing… everybody thought it was Tommy who started snitching so Boy Backs made the video to clear the air. Tommy wound up telling but in retaliation of Boy Backs snitching on him. it fucked our city up when the Ram Squad fell, they were really living the life and to see them go out like that crushed us.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        but theres another video of the boy backs saying that tommy put him up to to do the video … as crazy as it sounds … he said tommy and him conspired to put the snitching on backs but backs …. backs out and tommy runs with the footage to put all the snitching stuff on backs and off of him ?????

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        man either way thats some of the most retarded ass shit out there. if you a dam rat just be rat and sit ya ass in the corner somewhere and if you not a rat why let another man talk you into claiming to be one…. Hell naw…. now tommy dead and backs cant do shit in the streets period!!! SMH

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        hey im with ya def cant deny that …

    • Pirate7x

      Shouts Joe Lovick on the real ’round-the-way facts.

      “Skinny” Joe Merlino was (allegedy) the head of the top Philadephia Italian Mafia family for some time some years back. He (allegedly) he had dealings with Tommy Hill and the Pagans Motorcycle Club (gang) moving narcotics (allegedly). Hill (allegedly) was moving weight for the current heads of the Philadelphia Black Mafia.

      Philly’s rap scene is probably the most shamefully untapped resource in the industry. We have the most incredible emcees (Black Thought, Cassidy, State Prop, Slaughter Rico, Bugsy, etc.) with no solid business infrastructure to fully promote and monetize it. We also have the worst pandemic case of crabs-in-the-barrell of any metropolitan area. Ask why the Roots, Will Smith, Cass, and too many others could only find major success outside the city.

      Until we get it together Philly will continue to have stories like this of Backs & Hill. It’s sad yet still I have confidence that someday a proper unit of local entrepenuers will find a way to cultivate the massive wellspring of artistry in the Philadelphia area.

      • EL_BARK

        Tommy wasnt moving work for the black mafia.
        He moved work from whomever his connect was.

    • EL_BARK

      Tommy didnt snitch on joey.

  • King Cole

    I think illseed lost his right to use his name and allhiphop has control over it. This section of the site has fallen off in the last year, rumors use to be like 5 or 6 in one post, the quality has really fallen off (most of the stuff is old or made up badly), and illseed. com hasn’t been updated since last summer. something isn’t right her. smh

    • It’s become more of an amateur blog. The ones that school kids do as projects.

    • EL_BARK

      Illseed was chuck and is own by allhiphop

      • King Cole

        thats hard to believe because allhiphop and illseed fell out a while back (around last summer). they some chick named lacey doing the rumors which sucked like hell and then they brought him back. Plus, why would chuck go start illseed . com if he is really illseed….that would take away from his own brand of allhiphop?

      • EL_BARK

        Find out who owns the name illseed
        U knew to ahh arent you ?

        Its not secrets the original illseed was chuck.
        Illseed is just a pen name that they use.

      • EL_BARK

        illseed never had the right to the name illseed .
        Its always been own by all hip hop…
        The name belongs to chuck. Because when he first started the site he was illseed .
        Then let someone write the rumors under that name.

  • I don’t really get it.

    What’s the relevance of the picture of Jay Z, Obama and Beyonce to this story?

    A picture is meant to tie in with a story, you’re constantly leaving me and others confused and not doing your job as a journalist.

    Each time I read a story here I’ve got to verify it on other sites too.

    You say that AHH is “the worlds most dangerous site”, to me and others its now become the WORLDS MOST CONFUSING HIP HOP SITE.

    Here’s my 2 cents, invest some of the advertising revenue into hiring real reporters and get rid of the muppets who constantly write all these made up stories with so many typos, alternatively pay for them to go to evening college to study journalism.

    SMH as I finish off this last sentence.

    • The whole “brush dirt off my shoulder” thing.

    • King Cole

      I’m telling ya’ll that isn’t illseed. It’s someone else using his name. I’m done with this website. THis is my last comment/visit. I just noticed that someone pointed out they “googled” for some of the content. Illseed had actual connects from what I understand. I’m done. Blocking this site on my browser in case I came bac by mistake. #one

      • I bet you’ll be back on a 007 james bond style.LOL

      • You’ll be back….they always come back!

      • King Cole

        Yeah. I came back cause I hate this site so much I enjoy hating on the fact it ain’t the allhiphop i grew up on. sucks. hiphopdx is killing this site now and it’s a shame.

      • Well put!

        It’s definitely tough on the veteran All hip hoppers.

        It’s up to us to make it like it was.

      • Guest

  • rap game so dumb now.. u gotta bring your own people to watch you pay to perform lol.. but i think concerts are dumb as shit anyway.. so dont mind me

    • johnblacksad

      “turn arenas into churches…”

      some concerts are the sh!t… when a certain dude from Marcy, BK, comes out on some “allow me to reintroduce myself…” or on some “I’m from the streets where the hood can swallow a man…” trust me the crowd goes bezerk!

      • yeah.. theres a few moments no doubt… like the up in smoke tour… n woodstock… n maybe sumpin like sublime in camden Nj before brad nowell died.. shit like that

      • Rolando Mota

        who died?
