I was bumping M.I.A.'s leaked single "Steppin' Up" and couldn't help but say (to myself) that she was giving me "Nicki Minaj" vibes on the track. It must have been foreshadowing, because the two ladies did collaborate for M.I.A.'s upcoming release, MAYA. Why is it that M.I.A.'s name never comes up when people talk about the hottest female rapper out right now? She's done big things...her "Paper Planes" spawned a WHOLE other top ten hit...everyone knew both "Paper Planes" and "Swagga Like Us"...still she's forgotten.
"Teqkilla" is true to it's name and is an ode to spirits and libations. Listen closely, you may have trouble detecting when M.I.A. ends and where Minaj begins.
