Mayor Eric Adams has addressed drill music and his plans to have it pulled from social media.
During a recent press conference, Mayor Adams stated that he didn’t know what drill music was until he asked his son to send him some songs and found it “alarming.”
“We are going to pull together the social media companies and sit down with them and tell them that you have a civic and corporate responsibility,” the mayor said in reference to having the music pulled from various social media platforms.
He went on to say, “We pulled Trump off Twitter because of what he was spewing. Yet we are allowing music, displaying of guns, violence, we’re allowing it to stay on these sites.”
In the same press conference, Adams went on to say that there is a discussion with “very top-known rappers” in the works. There is no word on when this meeting will take place or who the artists are he is referring to.
This statement comes after rappers Tahjay Dobson also known as Tdott Woo and Jayquan McKenley (Chii Wvttz) were both fatally shot in Brooklyn on separate days.
