Pete Rock Says Drill Rap Is Trash: 'It Disrupts The Soul'

"Pete Rock had a lot to say on the Brooklyn drill movement, taking to Instagram to air out his frustrations with the booming subgenre.

“Good Morning Drill Rap,” the legendary producer wrote alongside a clip of New York Mayor Eric Adams playing a drill rap song during a press conference. “Thats trash hop not hip hop i been told yall about this kinda sh*t. idc call me what you want but that kinda hip hop is doo doo and it disrupts the soul i told yall that already man lol smh.”

He continued, “Nobody speaks up on this trash lol. Drill rap not even for the birds or the streets its the result of greed, people with no talent, and the destruction of the culture. Yall never see the play when it’s happening and everyone complains but does not speak up and say a word. Now this! this how we going out? Its on social media but who is really promoting this? talk about that smh.”

Pete Rock’s comments come after Eric Adams declared war against Brooklyn’s drill movement in February, saying in a press conference the music had contributed to a rise of violence in the city. He specifically cited the February 6 shooting of 18-year-old Bronx drill rapper C-Hii Wvttz, born Jayquan McKenle, who was gunned down in his car after he left a Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn recording studio.

“I didn’t know Jayquan, but his death hit me hard because the more I found out about Jayquan’s story, the more I saw how many times he had been failed by a system that is supposed to help boys like him,” Adams said in a tearful February 10 address.

He continued, “He was not just a victim now, but a perpetrator. But he was young, there was still time for him to turn the path of violence and move away from that,” Adams said. “Our system and justice system should have done more, more to help him, rehabilitate him.”

Pete Rock’s disdain for drill music hasn’t stopped the subgenre from exploding in popularity in recent years. Born in Chicago in the early 2010s, the movement began to gain mainstream traction in New York City around 2019 with Pop Smoke, but when he was tragically gunned down in February 2020, other rappers from different boroughs have since stepped into the fold, the most prominent face being Fivio Foreign, with other notable artists including Sheff G, Kay Flock and B-Lovee.

The subgenre has also gotten some major co-signs in recent months, with Cardi B praising Bronx drill in particular and hopping on a remix to Kay Flock’s “Shake It” in April.

“I don’t give a fu*k who you is, who you fu*k, what sh*t you jacking,” Cardi said in an Instagram Live session. “Get signed and get the fu*k out. You know why I fu*k with all of y’all? Because y’all getting the Bronx lit! Me and A Boogie, we became mainstream and everything, but you know there’s always a borough that they got sh*t going on. But right now, the Bronx really getting the sh*t muthafu*king lit. So shoutout to all y’all little muthafu*king drill rappers out there.”

You have bigger problems if you take stock in the opinions of “Cardi B”. A woman that set men up and has a picture of her a**hole floating around the net.

Plus when a opp hears their opp on the radio dissing them, it kinda fuels the fire more. So if it were banned then it would die down a little. But these little n*ggas are demons, so they’ll always find an excuse and a way to k*ll their own skin color.

sh*ts sad, no matter which path you choose.

That's the first time I've seen Cardi B publicly address A Boogie, that I know of; I never really seen anyone from HBTL address Cardi like that and vice versa.

It's kinda odd though since both parties are from Higbridge too but maybe some behind-the-scenes sh*t took place for that to be the case.

Regarding the OP, I'm not going to call any young and upcoming Drill rapper wack but I understand Pete Rock's frustration. Anyone would be delusional if they still said the music wasn't demonic and brainwashing a lot of impressionable people. Plus people are dying and it's hella crime and gunplay...

I'll say this, that first "Petestrumentals" tape was actually deeply therapeutic for me.

Pete Rock likely knows what he's saying here.

It's a hard thing to explain so I've never tried, but it's like he conveys messages through his beats. Pete Rock has a deep understanding of music as language, particularly in a spiritual sense.

Then don't listen to it lol. I don't even know what 'drill rap' is but I also don't sit around waiting to be force fed what's 'hot' or 'what I'm supposed to like'.

I trust my own ear and know how to find the sh*t I enjoy. It's actually pretty easy. This drill sh*t literally doesn't even exist in my world

I wouldnt say it's trash, it is demonizing music tho, it sound good but the content is low vibrational. I listen to some of it in moderation for workout purposes.

Pete Rock been on bullsh*t lately tho, maybe cause he's not getting the attention that he wants. fu*k him tho he has a female attitude

Old heads was calling Pete music trash in the 90s. Sayin it was unoriginal cause he wasn't playin no instruments and sampling they favorite records.

The older generation always goin have a problem wit the new generation... but just like Ace told Mr Pip in the cleaners when he was hatin on rap sayin he couldn't understand it "it's for my ears".



I get his issue wit the content.. but we can make a laundry list of tracks pete produced that was talkin about drugs.. murder too.. which some could say"disrupts the soul"

I love Pete but he should shut the fu*k up. Was he this vocal when coke rap became the wave? Gangsta music did the equivalent drill is just an extension of that. You can change the channel and find the contemporary hip hop you're looking for. Have that same vitriol and hate for the songs on the bests your produced that disturbed the old heads when you were young soul.

Demonizing?

Beat= 808 glides, kick drum, hi hats, synths
Lyrics = murder, money, hoes, opps

These kids lives is surrounded by the sh*t they rap about. How about the government aid the community and stop demonizing the neighborhoods(they won’t) how about father stick around and raise there sons(they won’t cause there locked up or dead). How about mothers raise their sons and stop chasing d*ck. (She won’t cause that’s all she know). Labels(rich white men) cutting checks, these fu*kers(rappers) will continue to get younger every year. Welcome to the hunger games. Enjoy the show.

Drill rap is designed to destroy the black youth nobody see's the play while it's in motion the culture is so stupid it's death music it accelerates what they want to do to us we should k*ll each other and whoever survives gets dumped into the prison industrial system.
