If you know anything about progressive hip hop artist M.I.A. then you'll know the one thing you can't call her is soft. This is the girl that has samples of hammers cocking and licking off gun shottas in her tracks as well as spits lyrics about the underworld in her former neighborhoods of: South London, South Central LA and Brooklyn. Well, the young mom now has a new music video by director Roman Gravas that is sure to be up there with the best car-centric productions of all time.
Set in the desert of what is surely a moderate Arab nation (we heard is actually Morocco), the video starts off slowly enough leaving us not knowing what to expect. Then a silver BMW 3-series E46 sedan pops in to view with some of her clique acting menacing for the camera. Nothing new there but then another 3-series show up including some E36s, an old Benz E-class and an Alfa Romeo 156 sedan.
Around 1:50, the video starts getting bananas with all kinds of stunting, drifting and general mayhem. We're not sure how much CG is involved but if that is really M.I.A. looking very relaxed at 2:02-2:12 well then she is as hard as a coffin nail. One chick you definitely would not want to mess for that we have to give props to her for putting together one killer car, er music video after the jump.
