M.I.A. And The Theme From “The Wire”: A Blogger’s Dream

Dan Gibson / November 4, 2008


As a music blogger, I am contractually obligated to post this new video featuring M.I.A. However, I should mention the real star of “Way Down In The Hole,” which is promoted by the above clip, is Baltimore’s Blaqstarr, whose stream of releases–including I’m Bangin’ No. 2, which he released in August–have been unfairly ignored. I’m hoping that M.I.A.’s fame-dust will make its way onto Blaqstarr, since tracks like “Shake It To The Ground” deserved a lot more hype than they got initially. [YouTube]
