M.I.A. “Vicki Leekx” Mixtape

Casually tweeting that a brand new mixtape would drop New Year’s Eve, M.I.A. made news earlier this month when she announced that a not-so-subtly-titled (Wikileaks: hey-yo!) new release was on its way, “vicky leekx mixtape coming new years eve! layin bad minds to rest 2010!” And right on schedule the controversial vocalist released Vicki Leekx, debuting it earlier tonight in the form of a single continuous mp3. Apparently containing production from such marquee names as Diplo, Switch, Rusko and Blaqstarr, the 36 minute mix extensively relies on a beat-friendly electronic sound that comes in contrast to M.I.A.’s aurally rigid /\/\/\Y/\, which was largely trashed by fans and critics upon its release earlier this year. M.I.A.’s first mixtape, the Diplo-produced Piracy Funds Terrorism, Volume 1, was released in 2004 and wound up taking the #12 position on Pitchfork‘s annual list of the year’s top releases.
