What is Chicago Drill Music?

Chicago Drill music is a subgenre of hip hop that originated in Chicago, Illinois. It is characterized by its aggressive lyrics, heavy beats, and intense percussion.

The lyrics often deal with violent street life, gang culture, and crime, reflecting the realities of inner-city life in Chicago.

The genre has been influential in shaping the modern hip hop landscape and continues to be a prominent style in the city and has spread to the UK.

Drill music exploaded in popularity when Chicago rapper Chief Keef released the music video I Don’t Like, featuring fellow artist Lil Reese, on March 11, 2012.

At the time, Chief Keef was on house arrest, performing the video directed by DGainz – in his grandmothers house.

On September 4, 2012, Lil Jojo posted a video on YouTube confronting Lil Reese saying “Imma Kill you.” Later that evening, an unidentified shooter fired bullets that struck Lil Jojo, while he was riding on the back pegs of a friends bicycle.

This tragedy brought national attention to Chicago regarding gang-related violence, and was reported by news outlets around the United States.
