I guess we know what Jay Electronica's been doing all this d*mn time: Call of Duty and white women. Aye bruh, I ain't mad, but d*mn can we get the album? A story recently broke in which the Roc Nation spitter was accused of laying some Exhibit D on the wife of millionaire Ben Goldsmith. Cold f*ckin' world.

Now the pair are due to split, so far, Jay Elec has not spoken publicly on the issue

A spokesman for Goldsmith, 31, said last night: "Ben plans to file for divorce on the grounds of adultery." The Eton-educated financier was arrested last week after a bust-up at the couple's West London home. Goldsmith is said to have confronted music producer Kate, 30, after finding texts arranging "secret" meetings between her and hip hop star Jay Electronica. Cops were called after furious Goldsmith kicked one of his children's toys, which allegedly hit his wife, bruising her leg.(The Sun)

Despite all the recent press Elec has received, we are no closer to finding out when the f*ckin' album officially drops! Does Hov even know?

What this means for Jay Electronica's career has yet to be seen. On (May 15) Jay-Z said that a new album by Elec is coming. Electronica has been signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation since 2010. "I love that, I want to support that sort of energy. I want people to be creative and not traditional, not just a single [at] this time, this time [and] this time," Jay-Z told MTV News when he was in Philadelphia to announce his  two-day Made in America music festival. "You know, he [Jay Elect] operates at his own time, but the album is really close."(MTV)

The MTV hidden camera show Punk'd is back, and they're kicking things off in high gear by pranking one of the biggest rappers in the game. Drake actually thought the Vice President of The United States needed to meet with him, so yeah ... they got him pretty good.

Although the show has had A-listers like Justin Bieber on hand to punk their celebrity pals, this episode was all about going big or going home. In a meeting with his punking team, Kutcher said, "I'm thinking Gaga. I'm thinking Drake. I'm thinking Kardashian -- only the one that dates the football players." Drake, it seems, had been the A-lister producers had been hankering to get on the show. "We have to give him something that he can't not show up for. Even though he knows we're out there, we just have to go for perfection," the host said, before pitching that he always wanted to throw a star in an earthquake scenario.(RapFix)

The Canadian rapper took it all in stride, later telling MTV cameras being "punk'd" is actually a sign that you've made it in the entertainment industry.

I said very early on in my career that this is such a sign of feeling like you really accomplished something when Ashton decides to punk [you], so today is a semi-feeling of accomplishment, but at the same time, f-k you! I do not appreciate that at all!"(NicoleBitchie)

Check out the clip here. And let us know: What current rap star would you like to see appear on Punk'd?
