DJBooth favorite Black Element may have had to push back the release of his debut album several times, but the wait was well worth it. Now that it’s finally dropped the Beantown-to-New York emcee is trying to keep his buzz alive with the party-inducing cut, The Stickup Kid. This fresh single off of A Major Minority finds EL becoming “Don Cheadle for the people,” over a bouncy, club track by producer Ryan Durkin. While the witty newcomer’s lyrics may draw some comparisons to a certain West Coaster with a penchant for name dropping, Black Element doesn’t allow himself to be overshadowed by the beat. A Major Minority is available for free download here.
