M.I.A may be having visa issues, but that will not stop her from releasing new music. The British rapper has previewed a 2Pac-inspired track, entitled “Poc That Still A Ryda”, which is set to appear on her upcoming fifth album.


“Poc That Still A Ryda” opens with Middle Eastern influences, and the raps are delivered in singsong style. It features hi-hats and bottomless bass, with key lines punctuated with silence to give them emphasis. The introduction is reprised towards the end, preceding the final verse.


The song, which samples Enigma’s “Lost Four”, is accompanied by a visual of men racing horses and cars through the desert. During a recent Periscope session, M.I.A. revealed that the follow-up to 2013’s Matangi will drop in July featuring 12 tracks, but apparently no Rihanna collaboration.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
