Romain Gavras + Morocco = Another Stunning Video

Romain Gavras and M.I.A. have done it again. Following up their highly controversial “Born Free” video collaboration, the director brings the pop star to Morocco for a video with almost as big a scope as their last.

Maya Arulpragasam gets all freestyle on your ass

I seriously cannot figure out what everyone is smoking. I don’t care what the haters say, the new M.I.A. record is brilliant: the beats are sparce, complex, bad ass.
