M.I.A. - Kala [The Samples]



Thanks to Pineapple Express and the plethora of emcees who have rapped atop "Paper Planes" (Bun B & Rich Boy are the first to be credited for this as far as I know), M.I.A.'s 2007 release Kala is making noise once again. I never would have tried to tackle a sample set for this kinda album back in '07 (when we started this f*ckin' sample set trend with the American Gangster samples), but I feel good about it now, so here we are: Kala samples! Crazy sh*t! This mix is by far the most diverse sample set we've ever dropped. I doubt you've heard half of these songs. As always, cop 'n enjoy. I know you'll do both!

  1. Kala was crazy/mad/genius/amazing. Still listen to it regularly. Timbo's track was the weakest on it too!

    This set is diverse no doubt. Didn't think you'd try it so good job.

    What other artist would use Rump Shaker, The Clash and classic Bollywood disco tracks all on the same album?

    Glad that the world is finally catching up and MIA is getting some recognition.

    She's stil criminally ignored over here too. Let's hope that changes soon.

  2. Amen! I hope her "retirement" isn't for real.

  3. just so you know funk doc, DJ/producer Diplo was really the talent behind that album(pretty sure) MIA in concert is very underwhelming and probably has minimal impacts as far as production. shes still pretty hot tho....

  4. True indeed. Diplo was the mastermind behind the production. There's no denying M.I.A.'s talent though...

  7. i remember back in 2004 when M.I.A. was a fresh artist and people like me were waiting on pins and needles for Arular to leak, none of these 'Funk-Doc's were around being 'clad' that the 'world was finally catching up' on her success, it was just a very nicely kept secret. and in all honesty, i wish it would've stayed that way. i hate hearing the "well i knew about her first" talk, because she had no fans in 2004, she had like 100 of them in 2005, and about 100,000 of them in 2006. that's 2 years before 'Kala' even came out, which was the less integral of her two releases by the way. she instantly became the new black, the ultimate "cool" conversation piece. it's gotten so out of hand.
