Paper Planes vs. A Milli

“Paper Planes” has offically became the new “A Milli!” Who could forget the numerous amounts of artists that freestyled over the “A Milli” track by Lil Wayne. Well apparently M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” has become the hottest remixed track in 2008 since “A Milli” hit the streets. It’s so hot even Weezy remixed the track himself!

Who’s M.I.A you ask? Well she a British songwriter, record producer, and vocalist of Sri Lankan Tamil descent. M.I.A. came to prominence in early 2004 through file sharing on the internet. Her debut album, Arular, dropped in 2005 and her 2nd album, Kala, released in 2007. In December 2007, Kala was named the best album of 2007 by publications including Rolling Stone and Blender. M.I.A. released “Paper Planes” digitally in February of 2008.

We know, we know….you’re asking how is a track that dropped back in February current news? Well apparently hip-hop artist Kanye West found “Paper Planes” interesting and decided to sample the track. The finished product leaked unto the internet last week and is featured on T.I.’s new album Paper Trail. The song entitled “Swagger Like Us” (which was taken from M.I.A.’s lyrics in Paper Planes-“No one on the corner got swagger like us”) features rappers Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and of course T.I.
