British-Pakistani actor, rapper and activist Riz Ahmed just dropped his new single "Mogambo" along with the corresponding official video.

In case you were not aware, Riz Ahmed is playing the villain in Venom, out in theaters on October 5, and the new single is politically charged with the Trump era in mind.

As Variety points out, the song was inspired by a trip that Ahmed took last year to Pakistan. "It’s a message to anyone who feels unwanted right now," he said. "It took me a long time to realize that the same reasons you might be excluded are the same things that you should be proud of about yourself. That’s really what it’s about...I hope it connects with people."

In addition, the name of the song derives from a Bollywood film, Mr. India, and its villain of the same name, which is featured in the Instagram post below.

Watch the music video for "Mogambo" above, and let us know what you think.

You can catch more of Riz Ahmed in 'Venom' this Friday, and according to early social media reviews, the film is a "complete failure."
