Source Material for Current Indie Rock Trends: Female Sudanese Rap

M.I.A. boasts a miltant fashionista political agenda. It’s pretty cool but, after three records, the only things gathered from her guerrilla musical musings are an attachment to flashy neon clothing and marrying a rich dude. Historically, struggle has yielded a lot of creative and amazing art. A notable one being the Black American struggle which has lead to… well… The current state of the music. Watching a Sudanese woman rap “I want to sing for freedom/I want to sing for Love” in a thoub and dunks is incredible. We’ve come a long way. I guess some dope shit is surfacing out of the current state of affairs in Sudan.
