Gazo Shares Merciless Mixtape 'DRILL FR' Featuring Pa Salieu, Unknown T, Landy and More

Even for those who don’t speak French, the ingenuity Gazo applies to the repetitive drill beat is euphonious. The ‘Prince of French drill’ can perch comfortably on his throne knowing he has rightfully earned his position.

The 15-track mixtape is supported by a distinguished selection of features including Hache-P, Tiakola, Luciano, Franglish, Landy and Hamza. The mixtape also holds down an unconquerable French-English crossover with East London’s ice-cold Unknown T and 2021s MVP – Pa Salieu. ‘Mon Cher’ is the penultimate track of the album featuring the two East Londoners and although each individual on the track has their own distinct flow the way in which they come together is like a match made in heaven.

The most recognized names including Ziak and Gazo (FKA Bramsou), who were once rapping over trap beats, are now becoming pioneers of the French drill arena. One aspect of French drill which makes it stand-out is the cross-pollination of languages, whether that’s a little taste of English, Arabic, Créole or something else. The French are audacious when it comes to creating something outside of the rule-books. This ability to effortlessly interchange lingos over a bewitchingly rhythmic flow coupled with their brazen attitude is exactly why Gazo’s mixtape has an edge over the rest.

With the increasing prevalence of French rappers appearing on global charts, it seems like the perfect moment for the UK scene to hand the reigns over to our French confrères.
