Mayor Eric Adams is calling for social media to permanently ban drill rap music and its videos for promoting violence.

He called for the end of promoting drill music a day after he gave a speech about 18-year-old drill rapper Chii Wvttz, who was killed in Brooklyn.

During the press conference he went on to explain that he didn’t know about drill music but was introduced to the genre by his son. His son is an employee at the Hip Hop enterprise that is Roc Nation who showed Mr. Eric  several videos that reportedly promoted violence.

Veteran Brooklyn rapper Maino helped organize the meeting with the mayor.
MAINO:  “I just wanted to create a conversation with the mayor … so he could get a real perspective and a real understanding of what drill rap is and so that we can have some real dialogue and really start to make things happen.”
