A group of young black men stand in front of a rapt crowd and begin to perform. They’re dressed in the uniform of balaclavas and hoodies favoured by drill artists. “God’s word is vital,” begins one of their catchy, explosive raps. This is a gospel drill and its performers are called Hope Dealers. The year is 2018.
Fast Forward to 2021, Gospel Drill has grown massively and is embraced by Christian youth the world over. From the UK to the United States, to Ghana, Nigeria and Southern Africa, Gospel Drill artists are fast gaining ground in the Hip-hop community.
