New York native Bobby Shmurda has made sure to seperate himself from drill music for good. In recent interviews, he stated he’ll never make songs in that genre of rap.
The Brooklyn star had posted on IG claiming he won’t make drill because he doesn’t want to follow the crowd.
After Bobby shared a video of popular Youtuber Bashworld showing love to his music video to 'Hoochie Daddy', fans started to praise him, but he had to correct a few fans.
“Don’t ever try to put me in a category or in a box you gonna hurt your head,” he wrote. “I do what Yall haters cant #Nahimsaying. i don’t do drill. I won’t ever be A minion Rrrrr and they can’t clone me really one of a kind.”
In an interview with AllHipHop, Bobby Shmurda doubled down on his claims that his music isn’t drill, and even shouted out Chicago legend Chief Keef as the pioneer.
“I’m not drill, I’m Shmurda music,” he said. “It’s never drill. Shmurda music. Because the thing is, I feel drill is like the Chief Keef. When I say Chief, anything that came up under him. Because a lot of these n-ggas came up on Chief, the whole thing.”
He continued: “My shit is dancing music. All my shit is going to be dancy. Everything you want to do is going to dance to, I think drill music is more like… [dark music] that’s it. My shit is more music to dance but it’s real warrior music. It’s warrior music, champion music, alpha music. It’s Shmurda music. I’m saying that’s all Shmurda. It’s domination.”
A lot of us have been wondering what direction he'll take after his release from a six year prison stint. I'm glad that he's finally showing a solid direction, and it's uniquely him.
