The Urban Dictionary website refers to drill rap as a "bullshit genre of rap that started off in America" and "somehow crawled its way into the UK."

Drill rap originated on the South Side of Chicago in early 2010. It is a genre of rap music made by and for gang bangers.

"Drill" means to shoot someone. The most popular drill rappers are either in prison for murder, deceased or will soon be deceased.

When popular drill rapper King Von was gunned down in Atlanta recently, most of my readers had never heard of him.

Also flying under the radar are YNW Melly (pictured top), Lil Durk, NBA Youngboy, Chief Keef, Lil Reese and others -- all of whom are alleged killers. YNW Melly is in a Florida prison awaiting trial for double murder.

Chicago rapper Lil Durk (pictured) is out on bond while awaiting trial in Atlanta for shooting at a man near the Varsity restaurant last year. He was arrested alongside the late King Von.

While out on bond, Lil Durk is making music with wannabe drill rapper Drake.

Drill music has infiltrated the Black community just as gangster rap dominated the hip-hop industry and helped to usher out R&B music in the 1980s.

Record labels prefer to sign drill rappers because today's hip-hop consumers prefer listening to rap artists who live the dangerous lifestyle they rap about.

Drill rap is behind a string of murders of rappers over the past decade. Rappers who want to make a name for themselves kill other drill rappers, then enjoy the clout they earn until someone kills them.

Mainstream magazines eagerly promote drill rap to their readers as the next big thing. There's money to be made in music that is detrimental to Black men.

Pitchfork.com, a Caucasian music blog, referred to Brooklyn drill rappers as "New York's brightest young rappers."

Gone are the talented, law-abiding, middle class rappers who rapped about dropping bodies and moving weight - as if they lived that life.

Music influences the mind and soul of young men. Drill rap should concern you if you're the mother of a young Black male.

Lil Reese knows he is lucky to be alive. The 26-year-old Chicago rapper was shot in the neck while riding in a car in suburban Chicago on Nov. 11.

Surveillance footage taken from a traffic camera shows a gunman firing a Draco AK-47 pistol at Reese's car across several lanes of traffic.

Police have no suspects in the shooting. Reese was reported to be in critical condition at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

While in the hospital, Reese hopped on Instagram Live to show his haters that he was still breathing.

After being released from the hospital, Reese, aka Grim Reaper, posted an image that shows a stapled vertical surgical incision on the front of his neck.

He captioned the image: "Made 4 it Lifes a gamble I got hella luck" [sic].

Reese has become a favorite target of robbing crews and rival Chicago rappers.

In June, Reese was jumped and robbed by multiple men who videotaped the encounter. The video later went viral on social media. His attackers claimed he lost control of his bowels during the scuffle.

Rapper Lil Reese was reportedly shot at an intersection in suburban Chicago on Monday, Nov. 11. Sources say the troubled musician is in critical condition at a local hospital.

According to TheJasmineBrand, Reese was shot while riding in a car at 167th Street and Pulaski Road about 2:30 p.m. Witnesses told police the wounded man (Reese) was taken to a hospital.

Reese, aka Grim Reaper, was admitted to South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest, but he was later transferred to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he is listed in critical condition.

The shooting occurred just months after Reese was assaulted and robbed by multiple men who videotaped the encounter. The video later went viral on social media.

Reese, who reportedly has a terminal illness, lost control of his bowels during the vicious beating.

 
After the video went viral, Reese addressed the beating on social media. He showed off a stack of money and claimed he was not robbed.

"I got jump[ed] by like 5 niggas all that other shit tell them kill the lies," he said. "I got up still fighting ain't no hoe [in] me bro... Yea ok a jump on ain't shit. Keep listening to all them lies I got 40k on me [right now] nigga ain't taking shit."

Reese, who was born Tavares Taylor, is best known for being a member of fellow Chicago rapper Chief Keef's crew who collaborated on Keef's viral hit song "I Don't Like" in 2012. Also, that same year, Reese went viral for brutally beating a woman who he claims disrespected him in her own apartment.

The 26-year-old Capricorn signed with Def Jam and dropped his 2nd mixtape, Supa Savage, in 2013.
 


 

Chief Keef in custody

The rapper known as chief Keef is now a ward of the state. The effeminate rapper whose real name is Keith Cozart, was taken into custody today for violating his probation. Cozart, 17, was on probation for pointing a gun at Chicago police officers in January 2012.

Judge Carl Anthony Walker found that Cozart demonstrated a "willful disregard" of the court. He’s being held until his sentencing hearing on Thursday.

Russell Simmons Lil Reese

A writer for Ebony.com took Russell Simmons to task for his "half-hearted" blog post condemning little known rapper Lil Reese for assaulting a woman. The writer, Sil Lai Abrams, is a relationship expert and a victim of domestic abuse herself. Lil Reese's violent assault on high school graduate Tiairah Marie was captured on a cell phone video that went viral online.

Reese later apologized for his earlier defiant response to the public outrage -- but only after radio programmers and DJs threatened to boycott his music.

Russell Simmons, who was criticized for approving a post on Global Grind written by a black woman defending Reese's behavior, wrote a tweet indicating he had no editorial control over his own blog.

"I deplore the violence one editor said boycott him the other said team them I said nothing," Simmons tweeted on Oct. 29. He later deleted his tweet.

Over the weekend, real men in Hip Hop stood up to denounce Reese's girlish behavior. Atlanta "goons" called out Lil Reese for fighting a woman. And HOT 97 PD called Lil Reese a "b*tch" for "knuckling up with a girl."

    “It’s sad cus Jojo wanted to be just like us #LMAO” he wrote in a tweet.

    Police say Lil Jojo (pictured left) was linked to the Gangster Disciples street gang, which put him in the crosshairs of Chief Keef and his gang.

    Lil Jojo's death was believed to be the culmination of a running dispute between Coleman, Chief Keef and a gang banger/rapper named Lil Reese (pictured above).
