Album Stream: M.I.A. - /\/\ /\ Y /\

​Let it be known that the latest album/clusterfuck of music from M.I.A., /\/\/\Y/\ (easier known as "Maya") leaked onto the internet Tuesday afternoon. In response to this, the spiteful M.I.A. has made the album available for a full album stream via her MySpace page. The lead single and subsequent video/ginger massacre for "Born Free" made the rounds a while ago, while "XXXO" and "Teqkilla" made the rounds just a few days ago -- and thank god for "XXXO," as most of this album is pretty rough and simply not up to M.I.A.'s usually stringent standards.

/\/\/\Y/\ is due out July 13, but go ahead and check out M.I.A.'s MySpace to hear the album in its entirety. You may go ahead and then judge her work all for yourself and wonder if the pissing contest between her and New York Times writer Lynn Hirschberg over the production of this album and some french fries was truly worth it.
