M.I.A. is the first new solo project from Warhol.SS since last year’s Chest Pains. Bringing a refined aesthetic to his flex-heavy tunes, Chicago’s Warhol.SS has a great ear and a flow to match. With production from the likes of OZ Musique (Travis Scott), Kid Hazel (21 Savage), Bobby Kritical (Future, Lil Uzi Vert), frequent Warhol collaborator Staccato, and more, M.I.A. cultivates an immersive trap experience, packed with fascinating sonic details (detuned synths, entrancing flutes, melodic percussion) and flashy turns-of-phrase. The EP boasts the recent single “Top Off,” in which Warhol and Ugly God swap witticisms atop Kid Hazel’s trunk-rattling instrumental. Featuring an additional appearance from Famous Dex, M.I.A. is available everywhere today
