M.I.A Exposed for Questionable Use of Lyrics?

I came across an interesting press release on Billboard Publicity Wire that I wanted to share. As some one that is intrigued with “freedom of speech”, I am a bit torn by the apparent publicity stunt that this press release is attempting to pull off. In one respect, I completed agree with the artists DeLon’s right to produce what he is calling “an educational video containing graphic evidence of M.I.A’s imagery…” and possible ties to terriost organizations, but than on the other hand is he using her to gain his on publicist????? Was M.I.A. Exposed or has she just been Exposed to LIFE?????

For more information about his controversial remix of M.I.A’s “Paper Plans”, which is featured in the movie Pineapple Express and how Universal Music Group (UMG) had his video removed from Youtube download the press release here. To view DeLon’s video visit www.ceylonrecords.com.

A Warrior Nation – “Superficial”

Thursday I had an opportunity to check out my friends A Warrior Nation live at Molly Malone’s in West Los Angles. Exposed to LIFE through music, I had an AMAZING time!

If you are not aware of the band, A Warrior Nation is Nick Eaholtz & Adam Lampert, an incredibly dynamic writing and production team. Together they have created a catalog of poignant soulful funk grooves. Their messages range from relevant social causes to provocative life situations, including relationship drama. A modern fusion of Soul Funk with elements of Rock, Jazz, and R&B, A Warrior Nation is reminiscent of Jamiroquai and Brand New Heavies.
