M.I.A.’s Vicki Leekx Video: Part One

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/DEeFZqF1LMg" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

M.I.A. released the Vicki Leekx mixtape at the top of January with another custom web domain, which included an interactive globe and listeners popping up as dots across continents. We should’ve known that was just the beginning: in this video, released on Wednesday, we see the globe spinning, lit up with M.I.A. fans, plus her internet-crash style imagery and real Wikileaks footage. This is just part one, so expect more chaos soon…

M.I.A. Vicki Leekx Mixtape

A free mixtape from M.I.A. surfaced recently with the name Vicki Leekx. It sounds like a mix of her old stuff (the alleged ‘Diplo demos’ released via funny domain-name-purchases after the release of /\/\/\Y/\, like “Let Me Hump You”) together with some raw new stuff. As usual with M.I.A., there’s no lack of personal, biting political and social commentary. The title alone should tip you off.

Yes the Little People Will Never Win But They Can Fuck Shit Up

M.I.A.‘s latest vid for her song “Story to Be Told” creates a trippy vortex of internet-inspired imagery.  She even bought a wonderfully explicit domain name exclusively for her clip.  Check it: http://yesthelittlepeoplewillneverwinbuttheycanfuckshitup.com/

“Story to Be Told” is off /\/\/\Y/\, which is out now.

Try not to get too dizzy.

Check out a significantly less controversial new video from M.I.A.,  at least compared to the gruesome “Born Free” video. Our girl Maya has traveled a long, bumpy road to the release of her album /\/\/\Y/\ , but she’s still going strong and sticking with the GIF animation theme in her “XXXO” video. If you haven’t already, check out the “XXXO” remixes featuring Jay-Z and more remixes by Riton and SBTRKT.
