Come June 30, Unknown T will unveil his latest project Adolescence, which will see 14 dope cuts with additional features from Potter Payper, M1llionz, Nafe Smallz, M Huncho, and Digga D. Before the mixtape touches down, we get to enjoy a new visual for “Driller Sh!t,” a Byrd and AXL Beats-produced banger that sees him delivering bars about his reputation, street politics, and more:
“They send all of those TikToks and them Triller clips, and let me show them niggas ‘bout that driller shit, yo, my foreign model wanna fill her lips, and all my little niggas wanna fill a clip, told my leng jawn that I’ma keep legit, but if I see the oppers I’ma spin da whip, she like Bentaygas and Daytonas, she wan’ bigger drip...”
Directed by Nos, the accompanying clip for “Driller Sh!t” matches the song’s intensity, thanks to footage of Unknown T and his crew dressed in all black, bringing its gritty nature to life. At one point, the East London talent can be seen performing the track while surrounded by bullets.
Last year, Unknown T liberated the well-received body of work Rise Above Hate, a 16-track offering with contributions from the likes of Young T & Bugsey, Young Adz, and 98’s associates KO and V9. Released in conjunction with Stay Solid and Island, Rise Above Hate scored Unknown T a top twenty entry onto the UK Albums chart.
Added to the forthcoming arrival of Adolescence is a T-shirt collaboration with clothing outlets Billionaire Boys Club and PLACES+FACES, which will see an image of the rapper as an astronaut rocking a pair of shades — logos of all three parties are visible on the back. Model Eva Apio and past collaborator AJ Tracey and SL model joined in on a photoshoot to promote the quick-strike capsule.
