Drill rappers whose lyrics incite violence or taunt the families of murder victims are being targeted by a new police unit.
The Met’s violence intervention unit has applied for 100 criminal behaviour orders against offenders aged between 14 and 25.
Police now have powers to vet lyrics and videos before they are posted on social media platforms. Rhys Herbert aka Digga D, is the first musician to have an order controlling his output.
He is banned from rapping about rivals or specific attacks, although he can refer to violence generally.
