Anyone who pays attention to the internets knows already that the new M.I.A. album Kala has leaked. I was actually looking forward to this one, I Liked arular for a little while but it wore thin. Galang is still a standard jam though. Supposedly some of the early leaks were missing a track called paper planes. I went back to get the extra track and it seemed instantly familiar as soon as it started playing. I go back and listen to Straight to Hell by The clash and sure enough someones been sample digging. Not like you have to dig very far in a crate to find a copy of Combat Rock. I don't know who produced the M.I.A. song but i'll get behind it for the clash sample and the liberal use of gunshot sound effects.
