The producer, who has worked on all of M.I.A’s previous three albums and also dated her, said that he advised her repeatedly not to rap about politics and blaimed her political stand on her last album failure.

“Maya left herself open for attacks. She’s not an easy artist to criticise because she’s very left-leaning, she’s progressive, she’s a woman. She’s good in a lot of aspects, but when it comes to die-hard, facts-on-the-ground politics she’s at zero. She’s nothing,” Diplo told WWD.com

”But she totally did. She didn’t have a plan B. I told her from the beginning it’s not going to work. And [journalist] Lynn Hirschberg just ate it up. If she didn’t the critics would have ate her up anyway because the record wasn’t good.”

M.I.A recruited Chris Brown
