DEHH Premiere: Ill Poetic “Mermaid”

ill po

Covers in hip-hop are bit of a rarity and we see it more on the production side of things, just because “covering” lines would be biting. However California artist Ill Poetic has done something rather unique with covering music in hip-hop.

In his newest joint “Mermaid” Ill Poetic cleverly mashes up Kendrick Lamar’s “Lust” & the hook to Andre 3000’s “She Lives In My Lap”. Ill Poetic re-produced the beat, added his own instrumentation to it, along with vocals AND went on to engineer the track. Ill Poetic is probably one of the only producers who could pull this off as his versatility & range is second to none.

“Mermaid” is the opener to Ill Poetic’s upcoming full-length album which is set to drop this fall. For now peep “Mermaid” below and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
