Drill is a branch of rap music that can be compared to trap music. Both are about life in the streets, but while trap music is about the trap (hence the name) and the drug dealing side of things, drill music is about the violent side of the streets. Drill is aggressive, dark, violent, and about guns and shootings. It's called drill music because the term "drill" refers to killing, doing a hit, or retaliating. For example, if someone says, "We doin a drill" it means someone bouta get shot up. These aggressive themes are evident in music videos. Drill rap originated in the South Side of Chicago in the early 2010s, and was made popular by Chief Keef, Lil Reese, Lil Durk, and others. New York is another drill hub in the US. Brooklyn and UK drill emerged in the mid 2010s. Many Brooklyn drill rappers use UK drill beats. Some popular Brooklyn rappers are Bobby Shmurda, Sheff G, Sleepy Hollow, and 22Gz. Pop Smoke, who also rapped over drill beats, is arguably the most popular from this region. UK drill originated in the South London district of Brixton, and their wicked beats are used around the globe.
-Many drill songs are diss songs between gang sets. In Chicago, drill music fueled the GD/ BD beef as members dissed dead opps in their songs. One notable song from this area is the Computers Remix by Wooski, who dissed like 10 dead people in the song and later survived a gunshot wound to the head while at a friends funeral. In Brooklyn, Sheff G. and 22Gz have dissed each other back and forth with their songs Suburban + Suburban pt2, and No Suburban + No Suburban pt2.

-You probably don't want your mother to catch you listening to drill rap.
-Be careful where you blast drill music, unless you're ok with your car becoming your coffin.
-RIP Pop Smoke

Literally a bunch of scrawny lower case Gs in wife beaters pointing guns at the camera and borderline incoherently talking about how they're killers and won't hesitate to murder somebody. Nerds previously stuffed in lockers and garbage cans at school have emerged and started flexing.

If you ever feel like a loser just look at Drill Rap videos on YouTube. You'll sleep well knowing that there are far bigger dipshit D-Bag losers out there than you.
"Drill Rap is like regular rap except even shittier. Frontiers in the lower depths continue to be forged."

Rap music that sounds like someone’s drunk and talking shit in your ear while someomes playing shit tunes on a speaker and you can’t hear each other so the person talking has to shout to get across to you.
Just listen to Drill (RAP) you will then understand.
