Famous Somali-Canadian Rapper from Drake’s Hometown Arrested on Murder Charges.

Famous Somali-Canadian Rapper from Drake’s Hometown Arrested on Murder Charges.

Hassan Ali popularly known by his stage name Top 5 is a professional Somali-Canadian rapper, singer, and songwriter. He first gained mainstream recognition back in 2014 when his fellow Toronto US-based rapper Drake posted one of his songs on his Instagram account.

Since then the 22-year-old has been making waves as a rapper by working with some of the biggest names in the industry such as French Montana, Metro Boomin, Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, and many more. Unfortunately for the Toronto-bred rapper, he was arrested in Los Angeles USA on October, 27 after evading the police for 2 months.

The arrest comes 10 months after the 20-year-old victim (Hashim Omar Hashi)’s untimely death from gunshot wounds. Hashim was gunned down in January when trying to get into his apartment and Top 5 was arrested a month later as an accessory to the incident.

He was later released on parole before law enforcement upgraded his involvement in the case to first-degree murder. The Canadian police department experienced trouble tracking him down until his arrest in Los Angeles.

Top five is now facing first-degree murder charges as well as failing to comply with law enforcement officers. Police also disclosed they will be providing further details about the case on Friday while the rapper awaits arraignment. Until then we’ll have to wait and see.
