Recently, NBC series ‘Law and Order: SVU’ aired an episode related to drill music, specifically on Brooklyn drill.

The episode was titled ‘Nightmares in Drill City’ and focused on a triple homicide that involved a Brooklyn rapper named Gutta. While investigating the case, Ice-T’s character Detective Tutuola broke down the origins of drill music, and gave some candid commentary on the music, and also mentioned one of the artists who became a trendsetter for the sound. In the scene, Tutuola’s colleague ADA Sonny Carisi came into a room with Gutta’s music video playing and asked, “What am I looking at here?” Tutuola went on to say, “The music’s called drill. It’s made famous by Chief Keef out of Chicago. It spread everywhere. It’s like competition on whose crew is the hardest.”
