M.I.A. confirms collaboration with Beastie Boys

We have our first word of confirmation from one of the artists asked to contribute to a vocal version of The Mix-Up that the Beastie Boys are proceeding to work on the project.

Beastie Boys fan Allan Baldwin spoke to Maya Arulpragasam (aka M.I.A.) before her concert in Atlanta, Georgia, this week. He asked her about the reports the she will be collaborating with the Beastie Boys. Maya revealed that the Beastie Boys have asked her to adds vocals to "Freaky Hijiki," but that she likes "The Rat Cage" instead. She also shared that she does not know yet what she will be doing with the song--just laying down vocals and/or remixing the song too.
