The Origins of Drill Music

As a subgenre of hip-hop, drill music originated in the Chicago Southside throughout the 2010s. Drill holds similarities to Atlanta’s trap music scene, which also embodies dark production and themes of criminal activity. Emerging from crime-ridden neighborhoods like Chi-Town’s Woodlawn community called “Dro City,” the genre became notorious for its gang violence. A slang term for “kill,” drill became known for its trademark flow, ominous lyrics about street hustling, and toned-down tempo (around 70 beats per minute).
