Rise to Fame
Hunter Ray Hill was a very normal boy as a teenager. He attended school, played basketball, and was active on social media. Later, he was hired for a job where he had to work six days a week. He continued posting regularly on social media and with time, he became more popular as a social media influencer.
Hill is an extremely popular comedian on TikTok, on which he has an account under the username ‘h2balla,’ created in 2015. Unlike most of the posts by other users of the app, the majority of his videos do not contain performances while lip-syncing to popular songs and dialogues. Instead, his content is very reminiscent of old Vine videos for which the creators had to come up with innovative ways to entertain their audience while working within the six-second time constraint. Hill’s videos are short as well. He also employs a film editing technique called fast cutting which used to be a staple of Vine videos. His sister Piper is his most frequent collaborator. She makes regular appearances on his videos.
The oldest photograph on his Instagram account was posted in January 2018. Since then, it has accumulated several thousand likes. His page on the platform is predominantly filled with photographs of his two cats as well as of Piper.
Hill created his YouTube channel on August 23, 2015, and posted the first video on July 28, 2016. Titled ‘H2balla does YouTube?’, the video basically serves as an announcement that he was starting a YouTube channel and that the first official video would be a Q&A. That video was posted on 29 July, a day later. Since then, he has primarily posted prank videos. However, he has been only sporadically active on YouTube. His most recent video was uploaded in March 2018.
