While M.I.A. is up for a Grammy this year for “Bad Girls,” the track was actually recorded way back in 2007. Apparently that session six years ago yielded another track as well, which producer Danja has decided to share with the world today. “Doobie” may have just been sitting on a hard drive for more than half a decade, but if it had been advertised as a new single today, no one would have guessed it came from such an old session. The ode to rolled up marijuana feels as live as any track we’ve heard in 2013. Check it out in the video below (it comes in at the 2:34 mark):
