DRILL & GRIME: WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?
How is music that reflects the lives of young people on inner-city estates treated?
“This is how it’s been from the beginning, it’s just that everyone is hearing about it now.”
South London rapper Giggs spoke out in 2010 about the forced cancellations of his shows by the Met Police using the risk assessment Form 696. Eight years later, Form 696 has been scrapped, yet UK drill groups are being banned from YouTube and in some cases prohibited from making music without police approval, in case of lyrics that “encourage violence”.
How is music that reflects the lives of young people on inner-city estates treated in the UK, and what does this say about the censoring of black and brown voices and communities?
With Grime MC P Money, DJ A.G, Drill Producer Carns Hill and Journalist Ciaran Thapar.
This is a pre-season event for THIS IS PRIVATE, and part of Banned Books Week UK.
