From the creators of the Grierson Awards nominated Terms & Conditions: A UK Drill Story comes the follow-up YouTube Original Documentary, Terms & Conditions: Deeper Than Drill. Narrated by Academy Award winning actor and rapper, Riz Ahmed, Deeper Than Drill gets to grips with the most challenging and prevalent issues affecting millions of young people across the country today through the eyes of some of the most promising up-and-coming music artists across the UK & Ireland.
In a post-pandemic, post-Brexit world, Terms & Conditions: Deeper Than Drill takes a tour of Britain and Ireland to discover how young artists are making sense of their world through music.
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 another example of YouTube Originals’ ongoing commitment to amplify the voices of the UK’s brightest up-and-coming young creatives by providing opportunities to anyone, regardless of their background or location.
