Santogold and Diplo go for Top Ranking on new mixtape

    Santogold has taken a lot of bumps over the fact that she seems like a more radio-friendly version of M.I.A.; accused of ripping off Maya’s fashion sense and using a lot of the same producers behind her albums. And now, those allegations will be even harder to dodge with Top Ranking, a mixtape masterminded by Diplo and featuring prominent contributions from Santogold (sorta like Piracy Funds Terrorism isn’t it?).


    Top Ranking is out via Mad Decent, and is available to purchase from Turntable Lab right now. It will hit stores “everywhere else” soon.
