  • album “A.I.M” by M.I.A.
  • As new musical programmer for London-based Meltdown Festival, M.I.A. leapt at the chance to call upon today’s big names in rap and hip-hop. Her line-up includes the gorgeous Mykki Blanco, Atlanta rapper Tommy Genesis and the young French artist MHD. Young Fathers, Dexta Daps, Yung Lean, Afrikan Boy, I Wayne and Mr Eazi will also be taking part. There still might be some surprises in store as the Tamil artist has also been busy soliciting PNL and Radiohead via Twitter. By taking charge of the programming, M.I.A. keeps the standards high as she brilliantly follows in the footsteps of other famous programmers including Lee Scratch Perry and David Bowie
