Die Antwoord

Die Antwoord, is an amazing hip-hop group from South Africa.

But hip-hop doesn’t do them justice. As their website states, Die Antwoord are a fre$, futuristik, flame-throw-flow-freeking zef rap-rave krew from da dark dangerous depths of Afrika.

Watch this video of “I Fink U Freeky” to see what I mean.

They left a major record label vying for creative control and have just released their second album, Ten$Ion, on their own ZEF Recordz label.

“I Fink U Freeky” is also a free download from RCRDLBL.

M.I.A.

M.I.A., one our favorite artist/provocateurs, has just released “Bad Girls”.

The song is a new version that first appeared on her Vicki Leekx mixtape that she made available on New Year’s Eve, 2010. Vicki Leekx is a combination of alternative versions of songs from her album Maya as well as new material purportedly inspired by the controversy over Wikileaks.

Vicki Leekx remains as a free download.
