M.I.A. Announces New Mixtape

    The world was introduced to M.I.A. with the seminal mixtape Piracy Funds Terrorism. Today Ms. Arulpragasam announced via Twitter that she’ll be putting out her second ever mix Vicky Leekx on New Year’s Eve. It’s been a rough year for the singer, with the panning of her junior record /\/\/\Y/\,  the cancelled shows, the whole New York Times thing – let’s hope this will help restore her swagger. [NYmag]
