People I Love: M.I.A.

What can one say about Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam, that hasn't already been said by the adoring hipster press?

The only Tamil/Brit/Sri Lankan Grime/Hip Hop/Graffitti artist I can name, this lady has stones bigger than most New York rappers.

Her songs are immensely listen-to-able, and each one has amazing lyrics on a wide variety of topics, like standing up to authority, working to help the downtrodden, and generally being aware and alive. Love her.

Check out her music:
