Elijah Blake - Strange Fruit

  • Artist: Elijah Blake
  • Track: Strange Fruit
  • Producer: illangelo
  • Album: DRIFT EP

Update: The Sean Alexander-directed visuals for Elijah Blake's Strange Fruit single have been added.

After hearing Elijah Blake tackle the difficult topic of child abuse on 6 / Fallen, I was expecting Strange Fruit to be like the iconic Billie Holiday song of the same title, a stinging indictment of racism. In actuality, it has about as much to do with its namesake's themes as Yeezy's Blood on the Leaves. Once you look past that though, there's plenty to like about this lead EP single, which sees Blake showcasing his game-spitting skills over a scintillating synth beat by illangelo. DRIFT is slated to drop via Def Jam next Tuesday, September 30. In the meantime, fans can keep it locked for the latest tunes.
