"2013 i dlted old tweet to bring u this. im leaving @RocNation . Thank to everyone who supported the M.I.A #MATANGI LP. HAPPY NEW YEAR | 2014," she shared via Twitter. The elusive artist added, "Trynu hit 2014 tweets by 2014 then I'm gonna tweet once a year."
M.I.A. signed to Jay Z's management firm in 2012.

"im gonna need @kickstarter and my fans to help make this exsist , ive been black listed through normal channels !!!!!!!" she claimed about a teaser video that Roc Nation would not release.
