has released a 40 minute mini-documentary on violence in Chicago and the young rappers who are a part of the scene surrounding it. The Field: Chicago
features appearances from up-and-coming rappers such as Lil Durk
, Lil Reese
, King Louie
, Lil Bibby
, Katie Got Bandz
, and more.
Drill music is a style of rap that has comparisons to Atlanta's trap music, but focuses predominately on the violent life in South Side Chicago. Most drill rappers are young, with some getting signed to major labels when they are 17 much like Chief Keef
, who is regarded as responsible for making drill go mainstream.
Two rappers who were involved in the filming of this documentary were killed before it was released. L'A Capone
, who was 17 at the time of his death
, was shot outside of a recording studio. The other, Jerome "J-Money" Wood, was shot
a few weeks earlier. He was 21. Rapper Lil Jojo
was killed last year
after releasing the song 3hunnaK
, which mocked Chief Keef, Lil Durk, and Lil Reese.
