It’s like being an actor in a movie and I’m shooting n*ggas. Does that mean I’m shooting them in real life? I think people [listen to drill] for the same reason why people watch movies. They want to live that life without having to go through it. It scratches that itch because some people may want to go out and shoot someone, [instead they] play a drill song and then that feeling passes. They think about something else,” he told NME.
