The Sri Lankan rapper’s new Wikileaks-inspired mixtape called “ViCKi LEEKX”  is a 36 minute rhythm assault featuring traditional rhythms by Diplo, Switch and Blaqstarr with hip-hop beats ‘n’ rhymes by M.I.A..  Being the political person that she is, Maya opens up the mixtape with a quote from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange:  “We leak the information to the public, and we defend ourselves against inevitable legal and political attacks. Vicki Leekz: leak me.” over a sampling of “I Touch Roses” by ’80s synth-pop band Book of Love. Off to a great start…

Released on New Years Eve, the mix features 19 songs including a combination of remixes and a few previously leaked /\/\/\Y/\ outtakes. You can get the full tracklisting, as well as her mixtape in exchange for an email here, or you can download it below.
