    even if it’s not a direct cause for knife crime or violence, you can’t say that the genre doesn’t trivialise or normalise such acts. it numbs the minds of the people who listen to it from the true horrors they boast about in their songs.

      @tbc wish people would use stupid point to defend drill and just admit you listen to the most toxic genre to ever exist. there is no other genre that all glorify the exact same thing, every single song, regardless of the artist besides drill. Rock has various different subject. even fucking emo music has more positivity in some songs than drill has. deadest genre ever.

      @Peaking Mantis bro its the only genre on earth that consist of 100% violence or selling drugs. yeah its great that the artist got a chance to get out but then they do nothing but glamorise that lifestyle? and kids are litterally like sponges that take it all in and get sensitised.

The most they do is get involved in beef they were already involved in before they made it, beef doesn’t disappear your oops don’t care what you’re trying to do with your life and to some extent ego and pride gets the better of them and feel they have to prove they are still “on this ting” which personally i think is stupid but i can see why it happens!! He’s not a saint but he’s definitely not selling l no drugs, not when music is paying him as much as it is!!

      I never said drill wasn't negative or violence but blaming it for crime is a weak cop out. If the government banned drill from TheXvid an all streaming platforms, in 5 years time do you think qe could we come back here an talk about a significant decrease in knife crime an shootings. Doubt it. With the need for technology rising bill prices which has poorer parents suffering even more which is causing more kids to hit the roads

    Drill music of course has an impact but knife crime, drug dealing, violence, etc would still exist to a similar degree without it. The root cause is the socio-economic conditions people are placed into as a result of things such as systemic racism and class disparity. Drill music can undoubtedly intensify things but at the same time the people that are placed into these types of environments should absolutely be able to talk about the life they live through whichever medium they wish, including music. Akala summed it up far better than I ever could, "your environment doesn't define you, but how do you transcend it?"

      True, but I don't think any form of UK hip hop has ever glorified stabbing and killing people this explicitely. Kids pick that shit up more now than they did 10 or 20 years ago I feel. It's literally become cool to carry a knife and use it, I seen 15 y/os comparing their kill counts in group chats

    How can you act like drill music doesn't have an impact when you've got young kids who've come from a decent background going round thinking they're 10 men and carrying knives and shit to school just cause they've listened to their favourite artists rap bout it. You've got lil kids viewing these man as role models cause they see the drip, the girls etc. and then they fantasise about what road life is and they wanna be a part of it. They don't see how road fucks up 99% of man in the streets, they just see the 1% with P and gyal and glamorising road in their songs.

      Way before all that drill and grime blew up there was man around my ends with guns n knifes n slinging there drugs. I was 8 at the time and they was 15 to around 18 they blastin out there rap and tellin me i could make big cash when am older with them. That messed me up so much and it made me think and act different. So yeah it's true it's effecting some kids but I like rap n drill not because I think am hard or whatever cuz i generally like it. Most kids these days don't even like it they just play it to be cool

    I remember when grime went mainstream and all these normal lads who were in topman the year before started rocking tracksuits and going on bad. That's when it started and drill has only made it worse so many young kids listen to that and make these man their heroes and try be like them. Cause they're their heroes they dress like them, speak like them and end up thinking there a badman rolling round with a knife and shit. Stupid to think that drill has never inspired someone and turned them the wrong way.

    The problem isn’t the music in itself, all music is a form of emotion. It’s more of why are there massive groups in the world that arelike this . Drill originated from Chicago anyway so whatever the formula is that creates this genre is clearly universal and clearly making money for the necessary people . And they push this music to the kids in discrete little ways that you can’t see.

    This comment section made me gain hope in some sanity. This clip diluted an otherwise valid argument that music is not a cause but a release and expression, props to diggas success but couldnt have displayed any bigger hypocrisy by praising him for Trainers and clothes to same kids whose families are now written off because of “certain” community members. Praising someone for giving back after selling drugs loooooooooooooooooooool

      @Amari Lewis I dunno. The roadmen I grew up around didn't have a moral compass...they seek out money and status by whatever means possible...that means being violence, even of innocent civilians. That's the definition of a roadman - a willingness to do anything to climb up the 'road ladder' and make those p's. Also, the irony of the roadman is that he is both desensitised to violence whilst SIMULTANEOUSLY being thin skinned and sensitive to any ridicule...which then in turn makes him more readily violent.

      @Amari Lewis Not saying digga in particular but people that act like gangs actually follow these strict rules are living in a mafia movie. Most criminals snitch, most criminals steal from and hurt civilians when given the opportunity to. Acting like theyre these street soldiers who are disciplined in how they conduct themselves is exactly the problem people have with romanticising gangs.

    Its easy to blame music for the severe problems in the UK’s youth, but violent rap music has existed since the 90s in mainstream media, yet we are only seeing a recent rise in crime perpetrated by the youth (namely knife crime). Clearly this issue is more complex than just ‘blame the music!’ - but who wants to ask the difficult questions? No one…

      People in postcodes who the only successful people that make anything for themselves is the dealer gang members or their friends doing county lines that have all the designer stuff and that flash car jewellery etc . For me as an example my parents always worked really hard own a decent house have nice cars my father has a genuine ap Royal Oak other successful people in the community have things from hard work . I’ve never had the need to commit crimes as a result as I now have a good job and I’m successful in my work . The drill rappers are those from communities that have nothing to strive for no decent work no decent schooling . If some kind of industry like metal work or wood work factories etc like back in the 60s we’re still booming we wouldn’t have all this . The middle / upper class aren’t likely to listen to this music and aspire to be a dealer because they can attain the designer stuff and cars jewellery etc through work . The lower class will on the other hand as it’s someone they can aspire to be like who came from nothing . The rate of poverty and uncontrollable gangs is at an all time high the structure of the underworld is gone where as before there were underworld leaders like richardsons and krays etc now it’s just anyones making a gang and doing stupid crimes like randomly robbing jewellers in broad daylight gta style with no underworld repercussions. It’s politically out of control as it’s just the elephant in the room that no one cares about until it appears on your doorstep.

    Still can’t believe there are people out there that support drill 😂 there’s a difference between rap and drill
    Rap has always been an art form, self expression etc etc
    Drill music isn’t necessarily causing violence but it sure as hell helping it cause violence and glorifying violence and a certain lifestyle
    I mean from the moment you hear little kids singing “ching ching”
    “Bla bla got put in a spliff”
    It would be extremely ignorant to say it hadn’t made a horrible impact on kids and especially London in general 🤷🏽‍♂️
    Most drill “songs” talk about getting splashed, whipping coke, someone screaming for their mum and then the cliche post code war
    And if you are unfortunate enough to come from these areas then you know full well it’s all just gangs calling each other out and exposing who got stabbed and who cried and who done this and that sooooo it to me its expected to hear posh Suburbans thinking drill is art but it’s ridiculous coming from inner city and poverty ridden places 🙅🏽‍♂️ do better lads

    • CGS DUBS
      CGS DUBS 4 months ago

      @ItsInFeRNoXiiCxD 1 - Not once did i say that drill is the prime cause of crime or violence, i simply think that it incites it. Do you understand the difference? As i said before there are a multitude of factors that contribute to this as a nationwide issue obviously. I said that the majority of drill songs talk about a violent lifestyle which is true, there are sure to be some anomalies of course.
      2 - Music has been used as a medium to talk about violence and crime lifestyles for decades, the difference is that pretty much every other genre dosen't inherently glorify a crime lifestyle.
      3 - I'm sure for a small minority of drill artists and producers making drill and finding commercial success has changed their lives. The drill scene is much more vast than just those at the top, to suggest that drill is somehow 'the cause of changing peoples lives' is absurd what a strange argument to put forward.
      4 - Irrelevant of weather its more censored now than it was then which dosen't seem to be the case. I've heard too many scummy lyrics talking about what young men get up to in is this lifestyle.
      5 - An individuals influence by something such as drill differs from person to person, somebody like myself would never be incited to do anything violent by anybody but maybe a young man in a different situation to myself may hear some of these drill songs and be influenced by it, its a completely individual experience. It's a redundant conversation to have talking about an individuals experience as we are all different, it is more constructive to talk about the content itself. We know that music has and always will have the capability to influence people as seen throughout different eras of music. Weather you like it or not people in the public eye influence people, not everybody though once again its all based on the individual.
      6 - Nobody has ever suggested that "someone hears drill and immediately wants to go on road'.

    • ItsInFeRNoXiiCxD
      ItsInFeRNoXiiCxD 4 months ago +1

      @CGS DUBS I dont think drill incites violence as much as you believe. Because you need to remember this hasnt been a genre for the UK for a decade, yet violence and crime has always been increasing over many many years, probably dating back to when you may have been born or longer than i have been. I think the reason to blame drill is the popularity, because its only right to link the trending genre to a full on UK issue that isnt even really caused by drill in reality, its just been there and now someone has gone onto a beat and began rapping about it. I wont deny that there will obviously be some cases related to the genre, but saying its drills fault that violence is being incited in general is in my eyes silly.
      If drill was not censored the way it is today, and remained the same sound it was 7 years ago, I may have agreed, but i cant because thats not the reality. The reality is the UK has taken the sound and evolved it. And now instead of it being the 'cause for violence' its actually the cause of changing peoples lives. Artists, producers and other people are affected positively from drill, and not all lyrics are as violent as you would think - you would know this by actually listening to the genre and not taking specific cases. Drill is a sound, and you can obviously rap about violence, or you can rap about anything else - ive heard love stories on drill, so saying its all guns, knifes and crime is obviously wrong to say because thats not all of it as a whole.
      And even if this is the case, please tell me if drill has incited you to go out and do violence, or if you actually see children and young adults listen to drill then go out and do violence? The reality is they listen to the music, and go on with their day. People can be influenced, but lets not act like someone hears drill and immediately wants to go on road.

    • CGS DUBS

      ​@Ibrahim Hayle Your'e missing Corey's point. Plenty of other mediums that portray violence will and do have an impact on issues such as knife crime ect.... but theres no question drill has got to be the big one at this time in the UK. Listen to the lyrics of these songs, so violent and nihilistic as Corey said in an earlier comment. By no means should it be banned, but the large majority of the lyrical content in drill songs are about stabbing man on the block, dealing drugs and getting money. It literally glorifies a harmful lifestyle which weather you like it or not with the mass popularity of drill influences many young teenagers/men. (there are many factors that influence young people to lead a lifestyle of crime, drill is just another that can play a part) (I also understand for many it's a product of that lifestyle too, it's a harmful cycle). I can't say that about any other genres even 90's hip-hop, gangsta rap, 2000's grime or even more modern trap stuff they may talk about violence and crime but are not purely driven by it lyrically, for the sake of argument ill keep this to music but i do agree of course other mediums will also play an impact too just not like drill in my opinion.
      tbh i find it quite twisted that people enjoy listening to young men boast about literally killing real people irrelevant weather its drill or not. I don't think that digga d would have the same fanbase if people saw the reality of the lifestyle he talks about in his songs too cos its grim.

      @Corey Michael Listen to whatever genre of music you enjoy, I was only pointing out how it’s inconsistent to specifically single out drill music as the only medium to push violence.
      I don’t see people criticise other forms to the same extent, if at all, in fact most Hip-Hop artists today are given a free pass for similar content.
      I’m not pro-Drill by the way, I see it for what it is, a fantasy. There are no conclusive links between consuming Drill music and committing crime, if you know of any then let me know but I genuinely believe too many people make a fuss over fantasy.
      Imagine people tried to ban Game of Thrones because someone somewhere was stabbed with a sword? That would be ridiculous…

    With the uk music as a whole, some form of 'this genre of music causes violence' has been about, because you can say the same with rap and trap, even grime back in the day with some cases you could argue the case. Only reason it seems this way now is because theres more crime, and also this is one of the more popular genres of music today. Its not hard to link more crime and popular music together and paint a picture of 'drill causes crime and violence' when the reality is that crime and violence is here even without music. Another harsh reality pill for many people is the crime and violence on the street is probs not from your favourite artists. They are doing crime and violence, not a music video. A select few may of course do that for all we know, but I feel like the idea of drill causes crime and violence is an idea that everyone doing crime and violence does drill music, which is obviously wrong.

      @toronz ali I’m black and African. I said what I said because this exactly how my mum would answer this publicly even though I know she doesn’t like or agree with anything in drill music. Doesn’t make the points invalid about racism or discrimination because it’s TRUE. But it’s clear she doesn’t like drill,… like AT ALL.

    Music can never be responsible for crime but there's a reason these people who do not care about our community want to always promote artists who glamorize the most negative part of the community ive grown to have to learn to accept it can influence ppl but violence will always be there weather there is music or not people commit crime because of the poor communitys with no opportunity they find themselves in

    Giving out trainers is a positive thing which helps boost the artists profile. It don't help the yout really. What it does is warps their value system by ranking trainers highly. Not every yout gonna get a pair from a Digga D, but they will have the value of trainers reinforced as a high value thing, creating behaviours in order to get them. Better to talk to the yout bout how he made it to where he is; seminars etc.

      Exactly. If he wants to make a positive change he should stop rapping about illegal activity and encourage his community for the better. It's so superficial, just some trainers. That's not help that's a publicity stunt. And still it doesn't even help.

      @Kwabena Addo junior youth violence has never been an issue? The media has tried blaming violence on any genre that has predominantly black people from hip hop/rap to grime to now drill. There’ll be another genre that comes similar to drill and you’ll be blaming it on that next lol the cycle never ends unfortunately as violence will always exist particularly in communities that are neglected. Instead of blaming a genre of music that is allowing the youth to make enough money to break themselves and their families out of those environments, put more effort in blaming those in governance of those communities in ensuring the youth have at least a chance to be productive with themselves and not believe the roads is all there is

    • Kwabena Addo junior

      Violence did exist before drill music , true . Our youth were not involved in most of the violence you talking about . Now everyone any age wake op , thinking they a bad man .

      @Minecraft test I don’t know I prefer the pure aggression of punk rock and classic rock and classic hip-hop, I don’t really get the distinction between drill and grime, drill just sounds like grime to me with lyrics that are not as good as grime bars and more samples. I think aggression in music should come from personal angst and life experiences not violence towards other people and is better executed when sang with passion but to each their own.

    Hip hop isn't inherently violent. It can be conscious, it can be poetic it can be upbeat.
    Drill. It's premise is violence. The beats sound grungy and violent. It creates a whole vibe that doesnt positively influence anyone. Other than the minority making money from it, missing the bigger picture completely. Drill music encourages, inspires and projects violence through its messagery and tone. Be careful what you subject yourselves and your young ones too 🙏🏿

      @Isotonic 900 you've just said true. The fact that it in any part is true is a problem.
      All the things you've listed drill promotes and encourages. Drill isn't the only problem ofc, but it's a major contributor to creating these negative mindsets in the youth particularly. Alot of these kids come from broken homes and find solace in this gang/drill culture. It isn't healthy for impressionable, already traumatized minds

    • Isotonic 900

      True but you can listen to drill all day bugging in your bedroom and it won’t mKe you kill someone it definitely will make you more aggressive and possibly act different to normal if you really embrace it.

      @L Trick it'd be impossible to prove cos you can never read peoples minds. but you can make a good guess, and it seems pretty clear that its influencing violence. its not the same as hollywood movies and its not the same as earlier gangster rap either, because the emphasis is on naming real people and places where crimes have occured. It's not just general talking about violence like youd get in most gangsta rap, which i think is fine

    If drill music incites violence then so does crime movies or any movie where the main character portrays violence but hes the 'good guy' in the movie. The truth is they both kind of do I'm sure there must be a study out there about this. Expecially kids they are easily influenced by movie characters/ music artists. Some people can get influenced too much and lose their morality and some can keep theirs either way it does end up in some violence.
