Mayor Eric Adams’ son, rapper Jordan Coleman, contradicts father’s tough views on drill music

Sometimes parents just don’t understand, or so it seems with Jordan Coleman. The film employee of Roc Nation and son of the Mayor of New York City Eric Adams, Drill Music’s formidable opponent recently stated that he doesn’t share his father’s views on the increasingly burgeoning hip-hop subgenre.

Adams hasn’t been silent about his bad feelings about drill music. Earlier this year, the newly elected official declared war on the sound in a February press conference, in which he called on social media for its deletion, citing the violent theme and the glorification of guns. According to, drill music is a subgenre of rap music that originated in Chicago in the late 2000s. It is phonetically similar to the trap music subgenre.

In an interview with Complex, the 26-year-old filmmaker and aspiring rapper revealed that shortly after his performance, he spoke to his father and told him, “Dad, you can’t speak for me. I have drill rappers on our label as clients and I like drill music. You can’t ban a genre. And I’m not sure why you said what you said, but I disagree.” The filmmakers said Adams replied, “I understand what you’re saying and you’re free to disagree. We come from different times.”

The entertainment veteran admitted he understood his father’s perspective, explaining that it “makes sense” that the 61-year-old politician isn’t for “people who commit crimes and then brag about it in songs.” Still, he resists the push to ban drill music.

Mayor Adams apparently found support for his takedown campaign from legendary hip-hop producer Pete Rock, who in a now-deleted post described the Chicago-born sound as “doo doo” and claimed that it kind of “interrupts.” the soul.”

“Drill rap! This is trash hop, not hip hop. I told y’all about this shit,” Rock wrote in the post, which included a clip from Adams’ press conference. “IDC call me what you will, but this kind of hip-hop is doo doo and it upsets the soul. I already told you guys that man lol smh. Nobody talks about this crap lol. … Drill rap isn’t even for the birds or the streets, it’s the result of greed, people without talent and the destruction of culture,” the Bronx native continued.

Claiming “everyone complains but says nothing and says nothing,” the producer encouraged people to “talk about that shit.” Mayor Eric Adams’ son, rapper Jordan Coleman, contradicts father’s tough views on drill music
