La Roux ft. Kanye West...
Used to have respect for La Roux. Whilst some of her music was, at times, a poor imitation of what Les Rhythmes Digitales was doing back when I was still at college, at least she spoke her mind and slated the commercial mainstream acts who got drawn into the celebrity DJing/doing guest spots on 'dance' mixes/released remixes with famous rappers featuring.
Now, in the last couple of months she's put out a mixtape with Major Lazer, done guest DJing slots including Bestival, and has now done this collab with 2nd Coming Of Hip Hop himself.
Artistic expression, or milking it for all it's worth?
