Brooklyn drill

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brooklyn drill is a regional subgenre of drill music, centered in Brooklyn, New York, that began as derivative of the drill music scene in Chicago and was modified with 808 percussion and sliding notes by producers from the drill music scene in the United Kingdom.[1][2][3] Brooklyn drill emerged around 2016 and was made popular in the mainstream in 2019 by the late Pop Smoke.[4][5][6][7] Other notable Brooklyn drill artists include Fivio Foreign, 22Gz, Sheff G, Sleepy Hallow, Sosa Geek, KJ Balla (deceased), Smoove'L, Fetty Luciano, MaxThaDemon, Ciggy Black, CoachDaGhost, Rah Swish, Bizzy Banks, Curly Savv, Envy Caine, Blizz Vito, PNV Jay and Nick Blixky (deceased).[8][9][10][11][12][13][14]

Brooklyn drill music first gained attention with the 2014 single "Hot Nigga" from rappers Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel.[15][16] Other early pioneers were rappers Bam Bino, Dah Dah and Curly Savv.[17] The music became more popular and associated with UK drill production (from producers such as 808Melo, AXL Beats, and Ghosty) with the releases of 22Gz's "Suburban" in 2016 and Sheff G's "No Suburban" in 2017. Both songs went viral and were credited for the rise of Brooklyn drill.[18][19]

Brooklyn drill music reached mainstream Billboard Hot 100 success with tracks from Pop Smoke ("Welcome to the Party," "Dior," and "Gatti") and Fivio Foreign ("Big Drip" and "Demons").[20][21][22] Pop Smoke was nominated for a 2021 Grammy Award for "Dior."[23][24][25][26][27] In 2020, Pop Smoke was murdered during a home invasion in Hollywood Hills, California.[28][29][30][31][32]

Over time, Brooklyn drill has evolved into a broader New York drill scene.[33] One example is Staten Island rapper CJ, whose hit song "Whoopty" is reminiscent of the Brooklyn drill sound.[34]

Brooklyn drill music has been described as influential among protestors for social change, including some associated with the Black Lives Matter Movement.[35][36]


The Brooklyn drill sound is a combination of trap music and Chicago and UK drill music (the latter of which brings production influences from British grime and UK garage).[37] Characteristic features of Brooklyn drill production include 808 percussion with manipulated vocal samples.[38][39] The lyrical content of Brooklyn drill music tends to be dark, violent, and aggressive, often discussing gang-related topics.
