He makes drill music because that's the music he likes
"Got a couple shooters and they ride with me/
And they down to shoot when it's drill time"
Slim's choice of genre may seem curious, but to him drill music was a natural choice. "That's just the music I fuck with," he told Complex, citing Chief Keef, Lil Bibby, and Lil Herb as a few of his favorite artists.
Though Slim says he's only been taking rapping seriously for a couple months, he's been making music for a while -- for example, he dropped a song called "Pockets" in March and a video called "Rice" in January -- but he's scrubbed the internet of his older tracks. His Soundcloud comprises of three songs, the oldest of which was released in June, and "Drill Time" is the only video on his YouTube channel.
