MIA (British/SriLankan hiphop...this is the chick who won an Oscar for the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack)
MIA is so good. I just hate that every radio station on the planet overplayed Paper Airplanes, I hate even more that that's the only song everyone knows from her.
Eh, I really think MIA is a little overrated.
I liked Paper Airplanes before Pineapple Express used it, but now it's moved down because I hear it so much.
I prefer Immortal Technique, Jedi Mind Tricks, Diabolic, and Common for my Hip-Hop.
If anything MIA is underrated, for the most part no one knows how good her other stuff is.
Jedi Mind Tricks, sooo legit.
I think my favorite album is GZA's Liquid Swords. Golden.
Currently I'm going through a folk-ish phase:
Fleet Foxes-Fleet Foxes (got this towards the end of last year, my second favorite album of 08 and introduced me to this genre)
Iron & Wine- The Shepherd's Dog
Lightspeed Champion-Falling Off the Lavender Bridge (folk sound, the lyrics not so much)
Bon Iver- For Emma, Forever Ago
EDIT: And if anyone's wondering, my first favorite album of last year was M83's Saturdays=Youth
