    the Dj noodles mixtape is cool.. but its kinda hard to listen to that “milli” sample for 40 mins without going crazy. enjoying the kardi version.

    also cool to see how many Obama references there are in this mixtape.

    Bulgarian A Milli version, don’t know if that counts as global:

    thanks for that, BS. it’s “local” of course — if you live in bulgaria. but for me, it’s “global” / “international” / coming from somewhere other than here. i think you may be right that “global” feels like a misnomer here — really lil wayne’s version is the only that’s truly heard worldwide/globally — but when we consider all the international versions alongside each other, i don’t think it would be wrong to speak of “a milli”s global reach.

    hmm still dubious of exploitation film “feminism” tho i see where the literalness or rawness could be fresh? powerful at least. The writer mentions an 80s cult film, surprised she didnt mention I spit on your grave. Theres a long history of non zombie/monster rape revenge movies, an inspiration behind kill bill.

    naija millie:

    by the way, rachel, me (dubious) too. and so is the author of the original rant, i think. (which is why i called it an account/critique.) it seems pretty sarcastic throughout.

    & thx for the additional millis!
