It looks like singer/ entertainer M.I.A. is back! After having a baby and taking a small hiatus from music, she's back and she featured on the cover of Complex Magazine's latest issue. Check out her pics from the issue, as well as an excerpt from the interview where she discusses saying no to Kanye West, thoughts on her son's upbringing, Jay-Z, & more:
Complex: What do you like about hip-hop today? M.I.A.: I think Kanye is trying to take it into a new realm and he’s sort of putting the artistry back into it and sort of taking it in that direction. I was having a conversation about Jay-Z and Nas and how it was really crazy how they were having this Nas vs. Jay-Z moment 10 years ago and no one really talks about it now.
Did you decline a tour with Kanye? M.I.A.: Because I was pregnant. I know Kanye makes it out to be this big thing, like, “She dissed me when I asked her to do a song.” Then he was like, “Then you said no to me and my tour.” I was about to have a baby! But I love Kanye, I think he’s been super-consistent, everything he’s done has been good. I like his interaction with the media, too—he’s just him, and he’s living it.
