Friday night at New York’s Terminal 5, Julian Assange gave a speech via Skype. Right before M.I.A. was to enter the stage, a video appeared on the screen with Assange greeting the fans. M.I.A. has always been one for freedom and reform, so it is no surprise that she would pull something like this.
Assange is wanted for leaking thousands and thousands of pages of classified American government and military documents. M.I.A. previously contributed original music for Assange’s TV show, The World Tomorrow.Also, She titled her mixtape Vicki Leekx after WikiLeaks.
The 6x Grammy award winner will be teaming up with 3Loco and Mad Decent’s Riff Raff. In an interview with MTV Australia, Riff Raff “accidentally” spouted out about his new album coming out with Skrillex.
“Yeah? Me and Skrillex have an album coming out. I mean we have a song coming out. Oh sh*t. That’s what I do when I speak too soon. I can’t tell you more than that.”
Seems as if Skrillex has been getting his feet wet with Hip Hop infused with his music as of lately. I wonder what’s in the works in the OWSLA camp? But when you throw Mad Decent in the bunch, you can only believe there is going to be madness.
