M.I.A. Upstages Jay-Z During Coachella, Announces Record Release Date Via Blimp
Jay-Z will never again serenade M.I.A.'s unborn child
File under things Jay-Z probably will not forgive: during the rapper's set at Coachella on Friday, a blimp took to the skies, bearing a digital billboard teasing the release date for M.I.A.'s third LP. According to Rap-Up, after reminding the Coachella crowd about M.I.A.'s two HARD Festival concert dates in New York and LA, the blimp coughed up this message: "New Album 6.29.10." Jay-Z's reaction to this diversion was not recorded, but we can sure it looked a little something like this. Now: how about a name for the LP? We hear Ickitt is still very much available. [Rap-Up]
