More often, rappers form a circle, known as a cipher, and share lyrics to a beat. Its less about competition than collaboration, said Justin Hernandez, a Virginia Beach emcee known as J. Pharaoh. Almost every time he goes to a house party, Hernandez said, he ends up in the backyard with friends, a boombox and a freestyle stream of lyrics. Just spur of the moment he said. Theres something really true about it. However, Hernandez backs away from battle raps because they can spin out of control. These kids today are fearless, he said. Hill said it takes maturity to shrug off the insults. Controversy is good in Hollywood, he said, but not in Virginia. Daquan Hill rapped his girlfriend to sleep. Rapped to his friends, mother, anyone who would listen on the street. One morning, he rapped in the shower, pounding out beats on the wet tiles, syncopated with the falling water. Michelle King, his girlfriend, told him to quiet down. Babe, we got neighbors, she told him. Were going to get put out. Patricia Hill said Fufu, as her son was called, was the youngest of three children. They were close. Every single day I got a hug and a kiss, she said during a recent interview at her Park Place home. Daquan Hill got in mr bones 1 in school and ended up at Hanover Juvenile Correctional Facility outside Richmond. He could be aggressive and stubborn, his family said. But he matured and joined the Junior ROTC program, his mother said. He held a steady job at a restaurant chain, Patricia Hill said, and had a knack for fixing cars. He took classes at Advanced Technology Institute in Virginia Beach to become a certified auto mechanic, and was one of the youngest in the class, she said. On Jan. 26, 2010, Hill went to a friends house on Maltby Avenue, near Booker T. Washington High School. King called at 2:30 ; Hill told her he would be leaving soon for class. Dominic Myrick, who lived in Suffolk with his wife, was with Hill that day. Court records show Myrick carried previous convictions for assault, grand larceny, and unlawful wounding. According to an account filed with the court, the final half-hour of Hills life went like this: Just after 2:30, Myrick and Hill agreed to a rap battle at a friends house in the 1200 block of Maltby Ave. They began to argue, curse and call each other names. They fought and had to be separated three times. After the third time, Myrick pulled a gun, according to the official account. Patricia Hill said a witness told her that her son asked, Now you pull a gun on me? Myrick, 31, admitted in court that he fired the shot that took Hills life. He pleaded guilty last month and faces up to 21 years in prison when sentenced in July. Bill Bonney grew up in an Army family.
