Tulikuwa na Dream ya Kutoka Kwa Block: Kenyan Drill and It’s Origin
Kenya drill music is a subgenre of hip-hop that originated in Kenya in the early 2010s. The sound and style of the Kenya drill draw influences from the drill music scene that originated in Chicago, USA.
However, the Kenya drill has its unique identity, reflecting the experiences and realities of the youth in Kenya. It incorporates local slang, cultural references, and social issues relevant to Kenyan society, such as poverty, crime, and police brutality.
The emergence of Kenya drill is attributed to a group of young artists and producers who started experimenting with the drill sound and style, such as Boutross, Breeder LW, and Khaligraph Jones. Their music gained popularity through social media and online platforms, where it was shared widely and attracted a growing fan base.
Today, Kenya drill has become a prominent genre in the Kenyan music scene, with many emerging artists and producers contributing to its evolution and growth.
