Remember what Diplo did to M.I.A ?
Nah, not when they dated. I'm talking about when Diplo brought her to the masses with with Piracy Funds Terrorism thus making M.I.A. an internet favorite before her album was even released. Well, Diplo works his magic once again, this time for Santi White.
Big thanks to Rashida, beloved friend of sophista-funk, for alerting me to the existence of this gem- the Diplo-Santogold mixtape, Top Ranking CD. It's a nice consolation prize for me and all the other sad kids who missed Mad Fools In The Park last weekend at Summerstage. Hit up The Hype Machine to find it. nightnite.
