New M.I.A. Track Is A New York Times Diss

You know that spacey joint M.I.A. dropped on Twitter earlier this week? Turns out it’s not about The Matrix, or giving birth or NASA technology but a retaliation against a recent New York Times article that crowned Sri Lanka as the world’s best travel destination.

According to Maya’s publicist: “It is called “Space Odyssey” produced by Rusko and M.I.A. The song and video were made Monday night for $100, after the New York Times, as she says: “fucked up so hard.” Check her tweets – she obviously finds it reckless and ignorant of the paper to not even scratch their own walls on what is reality in Sri Lanka.”

Now you know.
