Drill music is disliked because it reflects British society

“The people in power have misused their power”

Rapper Drillminister has hit out at the demonisation of drill music by politicians, highlighting it as a tactic to distract scrutiny from the real issues affecting the United Kingdom today.

Speaking in Brighton during the 2019 Labour conference, the London-based rapper – who gained popularity due to the political nature of a number of his songs – told JOE that drill music is understood, perhaps intentionally, to stop people talking about actual problems.

He hit out at politicians for abusing their power and for pushing through a Brexit strategy that will hurt the most vulnerable in our society.
