M.I.A.

London, UK via Sri Lanka
miauk.com

Believe the hype: Maya Arulpragasam will save modern music. A pan-global army of one, this Sri Lanka via London MC simultaneously spits political fire and gets booties shaking. Completely bypassing typical hip-hop touchstones, her sonics are a mind-bending pastiche of Jamaican dancehall, UK garage and samples that literally span the globe. Always current, always empowering and shockingly original, this is an artist whose story is just beginning.

Essential (Legal) Downloads: "Galang," "Bucky Done Gun," "Bird Flu," "Boyz"
