Still on the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift? Well, look no further because V has got you covered. Giving Santa a run for his money; rapper, artist, and activist M.I.A is auctioning off a one-of-a-kind art piece that’s arguably the hottest (and rarest) gift of the season.  Selling her first piece since 2002; earlier this week M.I.A unveiled a never before seen work of art titled FLY PIRATE via Instagram to announce the forthcoming auction. Guaranteed to put your friends art collections to shame, FLY PIRATE will forever be a topic discussion when hanging in your home. 

Not just a ploy to pad her pockets, the auction ultimately serves as an opportunity for the UK-born rapper to give back. Singlehandedly schooling us on what the holiday season is truly about, M.I.A will donate the proceeds to a charity benefiting the Amazon Rain Forrest. Talking exclusively to V Magazine; the rapper shared her thoughts on the importance of this charitable act. It’s my way of contributing to an ongoing struggle to protect what is important; nature, oxygen, and endangered species,” said M.I.A.  

Already proven to be the gift that will keep on giving; FLY PIRATE is now available to the highest bidder. With only a few hours left to the auction close, head over to M.I.A’s Instagram to submit a bid for your chance at winning an original M.I.A. painting.
