M.I.A. on Crypto, Assange and Her New Album


I all the time noticed the “Vicki Leekx” mixtape as a chunk of artwork fairly than a chunk of music, simply because it was very serendipitous, of every part and occasions that was going on on this planet. It principally simply occurred. Also, I made the “Maya” album and it bought actually badly reviewed by everybody, and everybody’s like, “Oh, my God, this is the worst album she’s ever made, she’s completely lost it.” And then I made “Vicki Leekx,” and everybody was like, “Oh my God, this should have been the album, it’s the best thing ever, this is the magnum opus of music at the time.” And I feel, to me, it was extra to do with the truth that it was a part of a collective expertise of what was going on on this planet.
