Who are the Top5? Rapper, 22, was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of murdering a 20-year-old man.
Top5 was one of two guys arrested and charged in the death of Hashim Omar Hashi, a 20-year-old man.
Top5, whose real name is Hassan Ali, was apprehended by the Los Angeles Police Department on October 7 after fleeing from murder allegations since May, according to CBC. The rapper was sought for first-degree murder and three counts of failing to comply with bail, according to reports. Top5 was one of two males detained and charged with the death of Hashim Omar Hashi, a 20-year-old man, on January 31.
According to accounts, Hashi was shot multiple times as he entered a parking garage in North York. Unfortunately, he died on the spot. Top5, the Canadian rapper, was originally charged with murder accessory after the fact, two counts of failing to comply with probation, and three drug-related felonies. However, in May, the rapper’s accusations were elevated to include first-degree murder as well. Atlanta Police recently detained rapper Paper Lovee for his alleged participation in a convenience store shooting. SpotemGottem, another rapper, was also on the Dallas Police Department’s radar in August for his alleged involvement in a murder. Other hip-hop musicians, like Bandman Kevo, Polo G, and 9lokkNine, have also been arrested.
