Published: August 9, 2012 - 10:14am
During an impromptu Twitter Q&A with fans, UK rapper MIA answered some questions which revealed some tidbits about her upcoming new album which is geared up for release this December.
MIA's third studio effort will follow up 2010's '/\/\ /\ Y /\', which was met with lukewarm reviews. The new album will be available this December alongside an autobiographical book, documentary and art exhibit. MIA doesn't have a title or track list locked down but did reveal that her single 'Bad Girls' will be on the record. The rapper also said that the upcoming effort will do something that very few hip hop records do these days by featuring "no collabs".
With the new album not having any guests, MIA also may have included a jab at her former producer by saying that her new record will feature producers "that don't act like fame whore coloniser". MIA summed up her thoughts on the new record by brushing off the critics who said she stumbled on her 2010 sophomore effort saying:
"No one in the industry collected blows in the last 3 years as much as me , this is a f*** you to them and a thank you to you."
