So recently I have been following M.I.A. and her crew. I'm sure you've all heard that she's been working with Baltimore's own Blaqstar and with his pro toge RYE-RYE (if you wanna know more about her Google), but enough about them, I'm stuck on Santogold! She's a new artist who has been doing her thing in the music business for some time now. She has been recognized by Rolling Stone as an "artist to watch" for her quirky beats mixed with reggae, hip hop, and techno and her "bizzare approach to lyrics". Santogold, born Santi White has a degree and all that jazz, but still has this youthful swag about her--talk about a role model. Her new single Creator/Les Artistes is popular with music heads everywhere and is perfect for those indie-dont-give-a-damn-hipsters who just love to make "ART". She has toured with M.I.A and even opened for Bjork and has still maintained her own unique sound (she is DIFFERENT than M.I.A)! Her debut album, "I Believe In Santogold" is sure to be hot shit. This Brooklyn girl is on the rise, and we mos def. love her over here.
