M.I.A. Covers ‘The Wire’ Song!

By

If for no other reason than the fact that we love both M.I.A. and The Wire and will use practically any excuse to indiscriminately post things tangentially related to either of them, here's M.I.A. and Blaqstaar's awesome (and presumably cost-efficient!) new video for "Way Down in the Hole," a track which samples the Tom Waits song by the same name, which you'll likely recognize as the theme from The Wire. Phew! Now if only R. Kelly, Helen Mirren, and Ben Silverman would all announce some project together, Vulture could take the rest of the week off.
