Original poetry from an exceptional young lady named Kaylynn. FYI, she’s only 15.
Hope you guys feel as inspired as I did by her words.
Today I had the random pleasure of figuring out what a drill was today.
Well, at least the version Fatzmack so eloquently told me over the phone.
According to him, he said a ”drill” is
”RIDING DOWN TO SOMEBODY ELSE’S NEIGHBORHOOD AND COMMITTING ACTS OF VIOLENCE”
In hood nigga terms, a ”drill” is ” RIDIN’ DOWN ON THE OPPS, AND BLOWIN’ AT THEY ASS”
So for those who didn’t get a clear and concise definition on my drill music blog post, I’d say drill music is…. MUSIC THAT TELLS THE STORY OF DOING A DRILL. OR RAPPING ABOUT THAT PARTICULAR LIFESTYLE.
Anyways, coming from one of the originators of the word drill, here a few videos ya’ll can check out to gain a further understanding.
Kween K had the pleasure of interviewing Maino last month while he was in Chicago promoting his newest album.
Check it out!

“This shit lame!”
“They not even lyrical!”
“These muthafuckas ratchet!”
“This shit raw!”
“What the fuck is a drill anyways?”
Whether people like it or not, there is a music craze taking over the city, and its called drill music.
Hood ass, ghetto ass, popular music made by familiar faces in the city of Chicago….
What’s even better? The people who make this music are mostly under the age of 21.
A lot of people disagree with this type of music, but I personally salute them. I salute them because these teens are doing something productive with their lives, and somehow beating the statistics society places against them. To me, making music seems like their outlet.
And what a popular outlet it is.
Everywhere a person might go, You hear people rapping their lyrics, singing their hooks, and imitating the behavior they see in the various videos.
The popularity of these artists fascinates me. Even the lifestyles they live. The shit they rap about. ALL of it is fascinating.
Think about it like this: Everyone needs a voice. And even if you don’t agree with what they’re saying, you can’t deny they’re talking about something real. Would you rather them be out actually doing a ”drill” or just making music, having fun and living life?
If all else fails, at least the beats are catchy.
Below, I’m going to post some of the music and videos I’ve stumbled upon, that I like…. Hope yall like it too. Support ’em. If you don’t support ’em, at least respect ’em.
Welcome to Drill Music…………………….
Ya know, this killin’ ya self shit aint NO joke. I think a person deals with more personal conflicts when trying to do themselves in, than they do when life is good and they believe everything is okay.
Nevertheless, I’m either gone down this whole fuckin’ bottle of Zoloft or I’m gonna take the painful way out and slit my fuckin’ wrists. I mean, it ain’t like I got shit to live for no way. After constantly getting shitted on by a nigga, 4 miscarriages, 6 venereal diseases, and countless of ass whoopings, I ain’t got shit to lose.
No job, no personal money, a few friends and barely any family, I mean things can go my way. I’m sick of the crying, the internal and external pain. I’m tired of feeling like I’m alone in this world. Only one person matters right now, but my dumb ass managed to fuck that up.
The one person who truly loves me and I screw it up by not being able to trust, to love. At this point, I think I’m a complete waste of body mass and the world would be so much better without me…
“BANG! BANG!! BANG!! DESIRAE!!!!! OPEN THIS DOOR MAN! I’M NOT GONE LET YOU DO THIS!! BANG! BANG!! BANG!!!” came the loud knocks and screams from Dre.
Damn. What the fuck was he doing here? The last time we saw each other, he specifically said he don’t want shit to do with me. And now he’s here? Ugh.
One pill…2 pills…3 pills…. 4….. The bangs and screams continue, and I continue to swallow the pills. Suddenly my heads feel woozy and I curl up into a ball on the cold bathroom floor, seeing my horrible life flash before my eyes…. The bangs continue, but in a while, it’ll be too late.
I close my eyes, breathe, and then its all over.
