Mix poetry, fresh lyricism, and original, angelic insight and you get EvO.
Since the age of 13, he’s been writing poetry and messing around with various thoughts…
At 17, he decided to make his voice known to the world…and began something unheard of.
To put it simply, he’s just another “wordsmith” trying to change the world and save it at the same time..
Sounds like a superhero or angel right?
Now at 20, he and his crew S.U.P.A Good Ent and F.O.O.D (FOCUS ONLY ON DREAMS)
are breaking barriers never crossed before.
There isn’t much to be said about this remarkable Chicago artist… No words can be used to describe this raw and passionate talent…
Just close your eyes…Open your soul… and listen
EvO’s debut mixtape, “Memoirs Of A Lyricist” is dropping soon.

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.
