New M.I.A. Record “Like Gucci Mane Meets Animal Collective”

This just in! So we got off the phone with Thomas Wesley Pentz aka Diplo nanoseconds ago and between launching a Major Lazer cartoon series on Adult Swim, touring the world and continuing his valiant social work with Heaps Decent in Australia, the best dude on Twitter is Producing M.I.A’s new album. In his own words it sounds like “Gucci Mane meets Animal Collective” which is alright by us.

Check out what Diplo had to say about the new LP below and look out for a full interview in the not too distant future.

“Been in the studio with M.I.A. working on her new record. It’s like Gucci Mane meets Animal Collective. I think there are a couple of people [producing] but we’re going to finish it off, me and Switch. We’ve done like four tracks already.”
