Unknown T
'Who Said Drill's Dead?'
14 June 2022 4 mins 34s

Fans of Channel 4/Netflix drama Top Boy will appreciate this edgy promo for drill artist Unknown T. The first half of 'Who Said Drill's Dead?' is set in Number One Cafe, the greasy spoon where Dushane Hill (Ashley Walters) holds court. Sure enough, Hill is waiting for Unknown T with a cuppa.

When the latter sits down, he unleashes a verbal torrent that blindsides Hill and his entourage. Even Dir LX's camera judders whenever the rapper lands a direct hit, determined to show that reports of drill's demise are greatly exaggerated (I don't know 'bout chattings, I grind instead").

The second half switches to a crowded stairwell, where Unknown T flaunts a microphone attached to a chain. Keen-eyed viewers will also spot a Deadpool mask in the background—a nod to Marvel's own outspoken troublemaker.
