Published Oct 26, 2010Frequent M.I.A. collaborator Blaqstarr has popped up all over the eclectic artist's tracks, most recently declaring he wanted to "hump you baby from the back," on her "Lemme Hump You" track. Still, aside from 2008 mixtape King of Roq, Blaqstarr's cache in the M.I.A. camp hasn't translated into any major solo releases. That should change when he releases his next EP in early 2011.
According to a press release, the record is called The Divine EP and will be Blaqstarr's first release for M.I.A.'s N.E.E.T. Recordings imprint. The PR adds that the EP "showcases his fearless and relentlessly experimental brand of electronic hip-hop." Blaqstarr furthers that sentiment, saying, "There are no bounds for my music, so expect to experience every one of your best feelings when you listen to it."
A tracklisting for the record hasn't been released just yet, but we do know that online sensation "Oh My Darling" will be included. That track can be streamed below. Look for The Divine EP to drop on January 25.
