M.I.A.'s 2007 hit "Paper Planes" had Hip Hop listeners of all varieties nodding their heads and dusting off their mics for the remix treatment. Now, the British music sensation is further deepening her ties to the Hip Hop genre with a new mixtape featuring a variety of rap's top artists.
According to Billboard, M.I.A. has enlisted a variety of top-tier Hip Hop producers for her latest as-of-yet untitled project. The guest list thus far includes Swizz Beatz, Polow Da Don and the Cataracs, who found chart success last year with the Far East Movement's "Like a G6."
"I think she's really going fucking H.A.M. on this," said Niles "Cyrano" Hollowell-Dha of the Cataracs. "She's not pulling any punches...[she is] working on a mixtape, and she wants it to be like an album."
Polow Da Don also revealed on Twitter that he had been in the studio with M.I.A. He even mentioned that she may be working with Chris Brown,
