I guess I will say that this is a banger that DJs should definitely play. I dig some of the chopped up action already and M.I.A.’s voice is booming, per usual. The sample is of the Swahili intro from The Lion King’s ‘Circle of Life’, and shouts out to ‘Bamboo Banga’ too. Plus, the lyrics touch on people below the border and adds to the rebellious premise. On that note, enjoy while you can!
