M.I.A. has her own way to respond to the critique that has been aimed at her after Lynn Hirschberg’s interesting but almost TLDR-piece in the NYT was published. She has now published her own truth up on the N.E.E.T-blog, go read and listen to soundbits from that infamous interview, over here.
Most important part of the post is actually that she also graced the world with a new track addressing the haters, called ‘I’m A Singer’ which majorly samples ‘Hater’ by Various Productions.
I like this track… ENJOY!
Here’s the biggest treat off MTV’s Lil Tunechi Weekend for Memorial Day weekend, the official video for ‘Knockout’ ft. Nicki Minaj. The video is nothing special really, green screen thing, directed by David Rousseau but Nicki steals the show:
Also, peep the videos for ‘Da Da Da’, ‘Runnin’ ft. Shanell and ‘Get a Life’, all taken from “Rebirth” and all directed by David Rousseau:

A group of NYC party-goers got an unexpected treat from Kanye West last week as he made a suprise stop at Manhattan’s CV nightclub and previewed tracks from his upcoming Good A** Job album due out later this year. Travelling with a small entourage consisting of Kid Cudi, Consequence and Plain Pat. West who has been been extremely low-key since his debacle at last year’s MTV VMA’s, played a handful of tracks for the crowd through DJ/hip hop producer Scram Jones who was playing the party…
“Kanye leaned over and said, ‘Play track three.’ They all went nuts, Kid Cudi was dancing on the table, and then we cut it off at about a minute-and-a-half. We went to another record, and that got everybody excited, and Kanye said, ‘Play number seven.’ That’s how it kept happening. By the end of the process, we played four records,” the DJ added. - MTV
Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

Yeah we’ve been waiting a hot loooong minute for Donnis sophomore mixtape to drop but soon the wait will be over, the new and final release date is set to the 22nd of June.
The reason for the long delay? Donnis will simultaneously release an album and a mixtape the same day! The major label debut, the “Fashionably Late EP”, will drop on Atlantic.
Donnis brings in help from Estelle, John Legend, GLC & more for the “Fashionably Late” mixtape which is presented by Clinton Sparks. The mixtape will feature tracks from the EP, sprinkled among borrowed beats that Donnis gladly laces with his playful lyricism and southern inflection we all love.
Here’s the latest offer, yet another great one produced by Needlz, called ‘Yup’.
