What is drill rap music?

Drill music is a subgenre of hip-hop that is characterized by a dark, slow tempo, direct lyrics that focus on the dangers of criminal activity with an emotionless delivery.

The nihilistic style of rap began in Chicago in the 2010s but has since spread across the world.

The hip-hop style has garnered a strong following in Brooklyn and is accused of being a driving factor in the recent rise in gun violence affecting up-and-coming rappers.
