Outspoken British rapper is set to tell her story in a new autobiography releasing this fall.

According to art book publishers Rizzoli last Friday, the book should hit the shelves in October and is being described as an "autobiographical monograph in collages." The 192-page book will reportedly include over 300 images as well as "several unpublished testimonies" from M.I.A. herself.

M.I.A. is currently in the studio working on her upcoming fourth studio album --she recently tweeted to Jay Electronica that she's in London working on the effort. The untitled album will be released on her new label, Mercury Records, and will be her first since 2010's MAYA.

Last month, MIA dropped a video for the single "Bad Girls," which was originally included on her 2010 mixtape Vicki Leekx but is likely to also appear on the new album.

After famously giving American audiences the middle finger during her Super Bowl half-time performance with Madonna, the Ski-Lankan star accused American TV journalist Anderson Cooper of calling her a "terrorist." He replied by tweeting: "You are mistaken. I never called you a terrorist. I don't even know who you are other than the lady who sang at the superbowl."
