HipHop is the most influential genre of music on the planet, and that remains true with the most recent HipHop craze across Africa. American Drill Music is taking over the African Continent by giving birth to African Drill Music.
Many Drill rappers have emerged from the African continent that score millions of views on YouTube using the same formula as the most popular Drill artists from American Hiphop. It’s easy to see they were directly influenced by Drill music created here in America, down to the art direction of their videos.
