Elle E.D. is a Los Angeles-based visionary that has spent most of her career growth in the shadows of some of the world's biggest stars. Everyone from Lady Gaga to Nicki Minaj, Diddy Dirty Money, Fergie, Magic!, Mary J. Blige, and Queen Latifah have benefitted from the creative drip that Elle E.D. brings both to the studio as well as the stage. Elle E.D. responsibly labels herself as "a beacon for the culture," taking steps towards bringing balance back to hip hop, especially for women. She is a fashion-forward up and comer who aims to bring her thought-provoking and edgy lyrics to life using choreography and bold visuals reminiscent of the iconic videos of MTV's prime era. Carrying such considerable energy that orbits around her presence, Elle E.D. debuts with her first-ever single release as she takes us into the intoxicating sounds of "Melanin Drip." Her witty verses take us through prime examples of how timing and tight poignant flows mesh together in hip-hop. Elle E.D.'s confidence ignites a flame with us and showcases her unique approach to her craft in the new wave of the music industry. Recruiting close collaborative partner DSTRK to emphasize further the lively energy and prevailing message in "Melanin Drip," the ebb and flow on this record are immaculate. These two artists team up for a vocal expression that you can't shake as you get fully caught up in each word performed. Although we're sure you can read between the lines of the forward and compelling lyrical motifs heard in "Melanin Drip," the two dynamic artists celebrate the birthright of Africans and African Americans, culturally known as 'drip.' One lyric at a time, Elle E.D. and DSTRK expose the plague of cultural appropriation that continuously invades hip-hop culture and the black community. Hooked on elevating the narrative we live each day, Elle E.D. has every intention of bringing balance to the art form of rap music.
