The creators of the Grierson Awards nominated “Terms & Conditions: A UK Drill Story” have announced the follow-up YouTube Original Documentary, “Terms & Conditions: Deeper Than Drill.”
Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor and rapper Riz Ahmed, “Deeper Than Drill” explores some of the most challenging and prevalent post-Pandemic and post-Brexit issues affecting millions of young people across the country through the eyes of some of the UK and Ireland’s most promising emerging music artists.
In Ireland we meet drill rapper Offica, a refugee from Nigeria who has put strong roots down in the small town of Drogheda; he uses his music to raise issues of race and identity. Sixteen-year-old Kavo lives in Birmingham with his Rwandan parents and paints a vivid musical picture of life in modern Britain for young people. Also in Birmingham is Mowgs, a survivor of county lines drug dealing, and addiction issues. He’s cleaned himself up and is forging a strong musical career. Amongst the dreaming spires of Oxford is rage rapper BVDLVD (BadLad), a thoughtful artist who takes on the online trolls with kindness. And in Bolton is Crystal Millz, an energetic young rapper who uses music to navigate her complex family issues.
“Terms & Conditions: Deeper Than Drill” is yet another example of YouTube Originals’ ongoing commitment to amplify the voices of the UK’s brightest young creatives, creating opportunities for anyone, irrespective of their background or location.
The documentary will showcase exactly how young artists are making sense of their world through music when it premieres this coming 4th May on GRM Daily.
