Elli Ingram: Poetic Justice

It's quite clear that Elli Ingram is not your average singer. At the age of 19, she has proven that there are deeper issues to be dealt with than the usual sex, money, drugs, etc. Her latest EP, Sober, is dripping with subjects that you wouldn't think a 19 wouldn't be going through. From the EP, you'll also find a fascinating cover of Kendrick Lamar and Drake's 'Poetic Justice'.

Along with attending various in Sydney, I was also introduced to a few new names in music and fashion. As mentioned on my Facebook page, expect to read some write-ups on those names soon.

Until you read the others, here’s the first.

Elli Ingram

Considering the original was released from Kendrick’s 2012 album “good kid, m.A.A.d city”, this cover is a more than a few months old, but I think it’s one that everyone needs to hear.

What a voice.

Switching up Kendrick’s verses and adding her own spin on them, Elli Ingram hails from Brighton, England and has honed her talents from a very young age. Inspired by the likes of Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill, it’s pretty evident to see that the vocalist has incorporated those influences into her soulful, R&B flair.

Produced by Felix Joseph and Rudi Redz, Ingram’s cover manages to take both Kendrick’s and Drake’s verses and pours endless emotion into an already emotion-filled song. This tune calls for multiple-playback.

I can’t decide if I like the original or the cover better!

Which version do you prefer?
