Los Angeles-based recording Artist Elle E.D teams up with producer/rapper DSTRK for this anthemic black excellence single titled “Melanin Drip.” As debut singles go, the track is a solid introduction to the NAACP Image Award-winning eclectic artist who has a solid resume writing for legends like Janelle Monáe, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, et al.  Over a booming hard-hitting backdrop, she delivers an unapologetic performance ripe with fiery and evocative lyrics that detail the scourge of black culture appropriation, especially in the hip-hop space. She holds nothing back and exposes the powers that be while paying homage to her African American deep roots. DSTRK also comes through with a superb verse echoing similar sentiments while also touching on the hypocritical treatment of black people over the years.

The video directed by Otheezy is quite colorful and eye-catchy. From the engaging performance shots, 90s motif, choreography, and bright set pieces, the visual is a sight to see and keeps viewers locked from start to finish.

Elle E.D. is a Los Angeles based visionary that has spent most of her career growing in the shadows of some of the worlds 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.
