Though Riz Ahmed's acting star seems to rise and rise as the days go by, it's nice to know that he hasn't forgotten about his bonafide dope rapper alter-ego Riz MC—yeah, he gets wheeled out on late night from time to time, but it's nice to see him back on true form alongside Heems and Redinho for an outing with Swet Shop Boys.

The transatlantic group's new single "Thas My Girl" is the first track from their new 6-track EP Sufi La, available digitally from May 26. "Thas My Girl" picks up where their debut album Cashmere left off—by turns sharp, politically insightful, steeped in South Asian heritage, and obviously extremely funny ("you know it's real when you stop watchin' PornHub"), as Riz's furious bars play off Heems's chill flow as perfectly as ever.
