M.I.A. – Hit That

Fresh off of recent publicity garnered from the trailer for Pineapple Express – which used the track Paper Planes – I have for you today, via those good people at Blender.com, a rare and unreleased M.I.A. demo of a track called Hit That, which was produced by Bangladesh.

mp3: M.I.A. – Hit That

The track is in a similar vein to Paper Planes, with it’s “all I wanna do…”, but instead of gunshots it’s “zoom-zoom-zoom”. It’s typical M.I.A. and catchy as hell. Enough people already knew of the Sri Lankan emcee extraordinaire, but the recent publicity will no doubt shoot her into further stardom – if they’ll let her into the US that is. She might be a soundwave terrorist, but the only hits M.I.A. has on her mind are of the musical variety!

    That’s a pretty mean track! I’m usually in the know with any M.I.A. tracks or remixes, but this is first time I’ve heard this one, so KUDOS to you my friend!!!

    I’ve had that track since last December. If I have it, it’s hardly rare or unreleased.

    It’s pretty good and typical of M.I.A.

    Yup, it’s been heard before, but it is mostly definitely ‘unreleased’. Back before people started spreading random mp3s around the internet, ‘unreleased’ actually meant that it has never been available for sale before. Which this hasn’t.

    What is the fricken point in being so negative, annie ander, and what an asinine thing to say ‘it’s pretty good and typical of MIA’ you’re not making a documentary or filing an insurance report. Blogs are on the whole one of the few bullshit free places on the net don’t spoil it, be happy.
    Love this track thanks for uploading.
