My affinity for female, British pop singers is just too much for me to handle sometimes. My newest crush goes by the name of Elli Ingram. Hailing from Brighton, England Elli has honed her talents from a very young age. Inspired by the likes of Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill, it’s easy to see where this vocalist gets her soulful, R&B flare.

The 19 year old soon-to-be star has just released her EP entitled Sober. The alcohol and drug-infused subject matter of the EP is one that you might not expect from a teenager, however, it becomes quite clear that Elli is not your average teen with a dream of stardom.

The standout from the EP, and song that originally peaked my interest, was her rendition of Kendrick Lamar and Drake’s “Poetic Justice”. The cover manages to pump endless emotion in to an already emotion-filled song, and gives the average music listener some great new material to belt out in the shower.

Ingram is young and has already proved herself to many major players in the industry, if she keeps progressing it will be no time at all before she is a household name.

Enjoy the cover and hop over to Elli’s website to grab the full EP.

Hip-Hop | Tyga – The Motto (Remix), Amy Winehouse ft. Nas

Posted by on November 4, 2011

After scouring the blogosphere, it seems like a lot of people are saying that Drake’s The Motto sounds awfully similar to a track that Tyga put out earlier this year called Rack City. Whether the track is recycled or not, Drizzy’s YMCM counterpart was quick to put down a verse over the track.

Here is an unreleased track featuring Nas courteous of Hot 97 from the upcoming Amy Winehouse album Lioness: Hidden Treasures, which is full of past collaborations and tracks that Amy never released. This track in particular was recorded back in 2008. Amy and Nas were close prior to her death, and it was recently confirmed that Amy’s song  Me and Mr. Jones was actually about her and Nas’ relationship. Nassir Jones gets a bit prophetic on this track, spitting lines about protesting on Wall Street years before the Occupy Wall Street movement.
