In war, there are no winners; regardless of who triumphs in the end, everyone involved suffers bloody losses. Acknowledging the senselessness of continuing the cycle of violence, rapper Black ELement denounces wrongful deaths and hopes we can all just peacefully Ride It Out. In typical New York fashion, B.E. snags some solid Northeast street production from Rami Afuni, whose jazzy vocal-hand clap combination adds to the song’s appeal. If you’re impressed with this one, there’s plenty more where it came from… Ride It Out is the first release in a series of leaks, entitled Missing Elements. Together, they will lead up to Black ELement’s debut album, A Major Minority, set for release on September 16.
