[video] "Ciroc Obama"?

For no good reason, Diddy is in the studio, working on a new album:

Around 1:05?!?!? That beat is fucking ridiculous! I'm sorry. The sad thing is, Diddy is gonna piss on the track and make it stale. That could be some seriously monumental shit. Beats like that make me wish BIG was still here...

Three dons dropping some monumental shit in the booth:

Rukus "Amnesia (Intro)"

Rukus "Amnesia (Intro)": Rukus has done done it; he's gone and leaked the intro to his recently released album, Can't Forget (which I STILL need to find the time to review - my bad, bro). And it's sick...

This may be a little untraditional, but I wanted to leak the intro of my CD ("Amnesia") out to the masses. For all the people that don't know who the heck Rukus is, what the new album "Can't Forget" is about, and just want to hear something different...I think they can get a taste of that with this leak. Its loud, different, and real. I'm tired of doing freestyles...I want people to hear songs, messages, and music with meaning...I feel like most artists are just rhyming words right now. But what are they trying to do...its more than music to me. My album is about not forgetting where you came from, where you're going and what you're trying to achieve. - RUKUS

Do you want more? Go grab the CD, NOW!

Black ELement "Presidential Paradise" (prod. by BBoySpaz): As is now standard for these Missing EL's, let Black tell you a lil about this cut right here:

"Whenever I had a bad day as a kid, like any other child I would drift away into my own fantasy world where everything I wanted was available to me. I revisit that world of total freedom and no limits as a adult, where I'm in charge and there are no rules. If I was on a island and could take a few things..."

Burt Fox "RiotControl Theme" [.mp3 \ .wav]: Been waiting (read: begging Burt Fox) for this tune for the last few months, and he's finally sorted it out.

Missing ELements #4

Black ELement "(Oh Shit We Goin...) Down!?!?" (prod. by Ryan Durkin): Black EL wants you to ponder the following... "You ever wonder what your last moments would be like on a crashing plane?
