Wow! Well this answers a lot of questions!

M.I.A.'s new album, /\/\/\Y/\, has been getting a lot of unfavorable reviews, but the latest is coming from an unlikely source - one of her producers, Diplo, who alleges that the rapper didn't give a shiz about any of the mindless noise she threw onto the record!

He reveals:

"She didn’t care about it. I was in the studio with her, she didn’t write anything. Me and Switch tried our best to be quality control of the record and she didn’t want that. She kind of went on her own way. I was like, Look, nobody in your crew—we were the only people she could trust, and our asses were on the line too. We got here because of working with people like her. We care about the way things sound, and when the people that she works with don’t, then it’s fucked up. She’s got a talent in every aspect. She’s got ideas bigger than any artist I’ve ever met and she’s someone to fuckin’ make that happen. All she has is a bunch of yes men around her and they kinda suck. I burned like twenty bridges with her. I build my own bridges, it doesn’t matter. I’m honest. As soon as she comes to terms with what she does then we can work again. One of us has to be like, We fucked up, and then we can do it again.”

Wow! Sounds like he's pretty embarrassed with the quality of the music!

We can't say we blame him!

Hopefully M.I.A. will get her head out of her ass next time around, and focus more on making music then doing whatever she can to be against the grain!

Thoughts??

    It's rap this girl does right? So what's the big deal? How can you tell good rap from bad rap? All sounds like shit to me.



  2. 2

    like you know anything about music everything you listen too sounds all the same and its shit.



  3. 3

    Wow sounds like they want publicity for her album. She is not even that big.



  4. 4

    This isn't as bad as some of the other stuff he's said. From this perspective, his bitterness makes sense. He should probably stop talking about it so much though. It makes him look crazy and obsessed. And this is really disrespectful to the other producers & writers she worked with though :/



  5. 5

    I like her music a lot but she seems like a bitch in real life :/
    Anyway this guy sounds like a bitter, creepy control freak…

    That's cool. Neither did I.



  7. 7

    LOVE her and a lot of the things she stands for.



  8. 8

    And it wouldn't have anything at all to do with the fact that he's not fucking her anymore.



  9. 9

    Shes an asshole anyway and for that alot of people wont even bother buying her album!



  10. 10

    Still, Perez, still?

    Re: Tube Steak – What the hell are you talking about? Racist much!!!! She is Indian fool from India…..sounds like some one is ignorant!!!!



  12. 12

    Anyone who knows anything about M.I.A knows she snubed Diplo on the album and did a lot of stuff without him this time around so hence the sour grapes..Personally I really enjoy Diplo and I also really enjoy MAYA. M.I.A is avant garde in a few years people will go back to the album and get it then.



  13. 13

    @Denise G Thank you for being intelligent.

    No wonder she didn't focus on the music, she seems too busy talking shit about people lately. I love me some M.I.A., her first two albums are brilliant, but I wasn't impressed by /\/\/\Y/\ at all.



  15. 15

    Re: DeniseG – ….same thing how ever you slag her she is still STUPID….biting the hand that feeds you…way to have a long career Ms. Patel….



  16. 16

    they used to be fuck buddies, so maybe there is a little animosity going on there??



  17. 17

    she isnt a very good artist
    that was unprofessional of her.
    show some passion and appreciation for music
    they are MILLLIONSS who are dying to be in the place your in
    dont take it for granted.

    even artists as great and as talented as micheal and whitney fell.

    Actually she's a Tamil from Pakistan. Ignorance indeed.



  19. 19

    Ok, well you can say critics called it shit..but I have been reading nothing but GOOD reviews for this album. There is always gonna be people on both sides of the fence, don't skew the facts to favor your opinion. So, whatever. You just hate M.I.A. now because she criticized Gaga. Whatever (I'm not interested in Maya, what she says outside of her music or her personal life)..you know she can be an asshole sometimes but this album is FUCKING SICK. These are some of her best songs and I can't get the music out of my head. Don't listen to Mario he endorses talentless hacks all the time and the minute anyone bashes Gaga they suddenly suck. Get over it dude and don't make it seem like you care about the politics or what she stands for..it's all about your wifey(who by the way I like) so…take it whichever way you want this album is REALLY REALLY good. Won't be taking it out of my cd player for awhile.

    HER NEW ALBUM IS AMAZING!!!!



  21. 21

    It's not THAT bad, but it does make me wish she'd work with Diplo and Switch more instead of Rusko, who single-handedly ruined what could have been an excellent album. In fact, MAYA is on par with Rusko's own work, ear-grating-noise-electro. I have no doubt that she will recover on her next joint, no worries there. She's an artist.

    She is tamil, but from Sri Lanka, grew up in England.



  23. 23

    This album is a big, hot mess of ear-grating, migraine inducing noise. Another prime example of someone with no talent having an opportunity that thousands WITH talent could really make good on and contribute something great to the world.



  24. 24

    She's absolutely brilliant. She's not the type of artist who makes music to sell it. She makes music to send a message, and to make a difference.



  25. 25

    Her music sounds like a fork stuck in a garbage disposal and someone screaming because their hand got stuck trying to fish it out.



  26. 26

    245,746,720



  27. 27

    No this bitch in particular sounds like shit. I mean come on seriously? What the fuck is this noise?



  28. 28

    I actually like her new album.



  29. 29

    I wasn't aware having one hit song in life landed you a permanant spot on Perez Hilton's site. She sucks and NO ONE CARES.



  30. 30

    It is actually getting more favorable reviews then unfavorable. Plus diplo is just butthurt because she used new people.



  31. 31

    Plus it is actually her best album. But what would you know, you like Lady Gagal



  32. 32

    Everything about her is phony and sucky



  33. 33

    Re: DeniseG – She's Sri Lankan. Not Indian.



  34. 34

    Wow…



  35. 35

    It's not like her first album was so great either. She is a gimmick rapper.



  36. 36

    Re: Tube Steak – Wow! What a racist moron you are!



  37. 37

    Re: LuckyStar101 – Oh yea what the hell does she stand for??????



  38. 38

    Re: Tube Steak – STUPID FUCK



  39. 39

    The two of them used to date. That could explain some of the bitterness.



  40. 40

    ha ha…what a burn ….mia sucks ass



  41. 41

    I have been listening to the deluxe album all day and I LOVE it. If you don't like it then don't listen.



  42. 42

    I love this album. I say its the best that shes made



  43. 43

    Re: the Dorian – You are really ignorant. Maya is not about hits…she has an awesome body of work which fans adore. Some of her music is currently the freshest, most exciting out there.
    But it is true, you probably would hate her albums…go back to listening to your top 40 crap.



  44. 44

    if shes doing it all on her own then its better,.
