How do you feel about Drill Music Jesus?
Chief Keef emerged from the almost cartoonishly violent streets of Chicago’s South Side in 2011, riding the crest of a grassroots, for-teens-by-teens movement that came to be known as “drill music.”
Like all ascendant genres, drill (and, by extension, it’s superstar Keef) was met with a mix of traditionalist revulsion, outsider derision and early adopter over-adulation. The simplistic rhymes and aggressive beats left some folks shaking their heads and others nodding along.
It’s been 3 years since Keef barked his way into the hearts and minds of the hip-hop cognizati with Glory Road. If you’ve managed to make it this far without an opinion on the still under-20 Chiraq veteran, read on for our group-by-group breakdown of Sosa opinions..
