Drillminister recently announced he will be running for London Mayor this 2020.
Born and raised in south-east London, Drillminister is ‘The Streets Elected Voice’, representing the youth of Britain that politicians have previously ignored. Using Drill as a tool to engage with a new generation of voters, Drillminister touches on political issues, such as the struggles of working people, austerity and rising levels of air pollution in the city.
Drill has caused widespread media attention, having been cited by the UK Government as glamourising weapons and gang life. Drillminister has tirelessly worked to transform the stereotype of London UK Drill musicians as violent criminals. In 2018 he publicly turned the tables on the politicians that have targeted the scene by releasing his track Political Drillin’, quoting extreme, racist and violent language used by MPs.
As a candidate for London Mayor, Drillminister is the alternative to the long-standing elite. He is the clear choice for a radical new era of politics. Raised on a council estate and educated on the streets he lives and breathes the issues that will affect hardworking, vulnerable Londoners in the coming decade.
Speaking on his run for London Mayor, Drillminister commented ‘I see the residents of this great city not as statistics and numbers but as FAMdem. My main goal is to fight for a better future regardless of our differences.’
