M.I.A. releases violent new music video for “Born Free”

Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam also known as M.I.A. is a jack of all trades, including becoming a prominent individual within the music scene. Most known for her single “Paper Planes,” she has been nominated for two Grammy Awards. In addition in 2009, Time magazine named her on the top 100 list of “World’s Most Influential People.” Her songs tend to deal with political themes, and this new video for her song “Born Free” doesn’t stop short of that tall order.

The video plays more like a short film coming in at just over 9 minutes long, and despite the disturbing content, the film is brilliant to say the least. The visuals portray so much realistic emotion that it’s impossible to walk away from the film unchanged. M.I.A. has successfully made a video that will shock and awe audiences for some time.

Warning: This video contains graphic images, violence, explicit words and is not suitable for work or for the light of heart. Play at your own risk:
