I’m sorry if this has been asked before, but I can’t find anything in my search.. I’ve listened to the WTF podcast interview you did a while back many times, and each time the lyric you mentioned sticks out, and strikes a heavy chord in me. “You were an evil man most of the time, but on our best days we were partners in crime”.

The M.I.A. book foreword

vandlo: I met Maya in 1998 at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. She joined the film degree program late, with no interview. She just blagged her way in on the phone and turned up halfway through the term. We all dressed in dark colors and talked serious art theory. Maya wore […]
