Update Your Playlist: 10 Kumerican Drill Songs Trending

There is no doubt that the Kumerican steeze is here to stay as new stuff continue to pop out of the region as the day goes by.

The new trending topic from the Republic of Asante (Kumerica) is the young guys who are putting the country on the map with their ‘drill’ music.

In this post, we bring you 10 of these songs that are making wave all over the world.

Drill is a style of trap music that originated in the South Side of Chicago in the early 2010s. It is defined by its dark, violent, nihilistic lyrical content and ominous trap-influenced beats.

Drill progressed into the American mainstream in mid-2012 following the success of rappers and producers like Young ChopChief KeefLil DurkFredo Santana, SD and Lil Reese, who had many local fans and a significant Internet presence. Media attention and the signing of drill musicians to major labels followed. Artists within the genre have been noted for their style of lyricism and association with crime in Chicago.

A regional subgenre, UK drill, emerged in London, particularly in the district of Brixton, beginning in 2012. UK drill rose to prominence by the mid-2010s and has influenced the creation of other regional scenes, such as Australian, Irish and New York drill.
