“A Long Story Short” is finally here! After a phenomenal display of lyricism, wit, charm, appeal and dedication on his freshman solo mixtape “Great Expectations”, URB Magazine NEXT 1000 candidate Element, of the critically acclaimed Los Angeles based Hip-Hop collective, Custom Made returns with his highly anticipated succession “A Long Story Short.”

After wrapping up the latest Custom Made mixtape “The Lost Weekend”, the official group LP under Babygrande “Original Dynasty,” and selling over 43,000 copies worldwide of his first solo project “Great Expectations,” Element continues to deliver an array of passionate, real life stories that his fans yearn for. “Its extremely important that I spit the truth,” explains Element. “Things I see in my everyday life, things I‟ve been through, stories that were told to me from my elders, or just a regular conversations I’ve had; I feed off of all of that then write about what touches me the most. That‟s where the passion comes from.”

Even though this is a mixtape; with all original production and all new music, it sounds more like an album. This time around, All of the production is handled by Custom Made producer, Abstrakt Soundz.

“A Long Story Short” features Custom Made cohorts Bluff, Scoobs, Six, Skitzo and the lovely voice of singer Dena Fleming. It is the second installment of Element’s mixtape series and is also here to hold fans over while he polishes up his Official LP titled “Battle Cry.” With this release, Element is definitely defining his talents as a poet, his uniqueness as an emcee and his sincerity as a person all in “A Long Story Short.”
