MIA is my favorite hip-hop artist although i don't know that much about her aside from her music. I did friend her on facebook and many of her posts were about political crisis that were in progress around the world. Her music is very informed and inspiring. She motivates people to stand up against systems of oppression and i value her work because of that. She makes direct connections to capitalism and how that negatively affects people. I admire her courage and creative knowledge. She is affective in motivating change on a global level because she shifts consiousness. She has shifted my world view.
