I know some musicians who have studios in Trinidad. There's a collective of artists and painters there now who went to Central Saint Martins College [in London] with me. They live there and make art. It's neat to see that-[people] not led by money or pretentiousness.

It's a small community, but you really have the space to observe and digest the culture. You go to a place where social commentary is rare and important and you can serve people. That's what's inspiring to me-finding someplace where people haven't already seen themselves in a certain light. First released in , with its mix of beats and claps, edgy vocals and lyrics, it marked M.

Short clip of "Bird Flu" showing the Gaana -inspired track's use of urumee drums. People reckon that I need a political degree in order to go, 'My school got bombed and I remember it cos I was years-old'. I think if there is an issue of people who, having had first hand experiences, are not being able to recount that — because there is laws or government restrictions or censorship or the removal of an individual story in a political situation — then that's what I'll keep saying and sticking up for, cos I think that's the most dangerous thing.

I think removing individual voices and not letting people just go 'This happened to me' is really dangerous. That's what was happening And I just think that that's just what people want to put out there, you know, 'You don't have the right to talk about this'.

And they use me as a puppet to explain that to you, that only people who, you know, have a PhD in this shit are allowed to talk about this.

Or that only politicians are allowed to talk about politics, and that's why we're fucked, because the cycle is constantly kept within that fucking framework.

There aren't more people standing up and telling their personal experience You have to follow this bureaucratic bullshit to get any sort of action, and it's all part of this cycle.

Like back in the day, we had ideals of revolution and fighting back, and most of the time that shit starts with individual people having personal relationships, these experiences.

And now it's so disconnected and the media can paint a picture for you Whether it's the floods, or starving people in Africa, or whatever. It's all funnelled through this channel, you really are not getting it from the horse's mouth, you know? List of awards and nominations received by M.

Others suggested that the Bush administration simply didn't like the message of her music. Or perhaps the hang-up was simply some mundane bureaucratic snafu, with no political significance at all. In any case, for most of , M. In an interview, M. What sounds, at first, like the simplest kind of "stick-'em-up" thuggishness might be heard as a broader critique of the violence and profiteering marring even the highest levels of human society.

But, really, it could be a much bigger idea: Selling weapons and the companies that manufacture guns—that's probably the biggest moneymaker in the world. Or maybe we're getting carried away with all this postmodern intellectualizing.

Maybe the lyrics mean exactly what they sound like they mean, and the song really is just a celebration of simple gangsterism. Since the debut of her first album, Arular , in , M. But until "Paper Planes," she struggled to really break through to mass audiences. Arular got named on just about every critic's annual top-ten list but barely sold , copies in America. It's no secret that a violent "gangsta" attitude can help a hip-hop artist make it to the big time just ask 50 Cent, who famously survived a gunshot wound to the face on the way to becoming a rap star.

Is it an accident, then, that the song that finally became M.
