M.I.A. scored a big hit back in 2007 with "Paper Planes," a song that became a favorite among hip hop heads. Now, the British singer is enlisting a number of heavy-hitting producers for her upcoming mixtape. Swizz Beatz, Polow Da Don and the Cataracs will be collaborating with M.I.A. for the still untitled mixtape.

"I think she's really going f**kng H.A.M. on this," Niles "Cyrano" Hollowell-Dha of the Cataracs told Billboard.com. "She's not pulling any punches...[she is] working on a mixtape, and she wants it to be like an album." The Cataracs are the production team responsible for Far East Movement's 2010 hit single "Like A G6."

Just last week, BET.com reported that M.I.A. was in the studio recording with Chris Brown and Polow Da Don.
