Thats the gist of the hip-hop feud between M.I.A. and rapper DeLon, whose single The DooWop (Be Mine) is out now.
Both artists hail from Sri Lanka, where DeLon claims M.I.A. supports a local terrorist group known as LTTE.
The groups symbol is the tiger and M.I.A. prominently features the animal in her videos, lyrics, and clothing.
By affiliating herself with LTTE, DeLon argues that M.I.A. is glorifying terrorism and telling people to fþck off.
He says that wearing any sort of tiger paraphernalia in Sri Lanka could get someone killed, but opposing LTTE is also dangerous.
Since publicly calling out M.I.A. through a Paper Planes diss on YouTube, DeLon has received death threats from the Tigers.
Its worth it though, since M.I.A. has caged her use of the symbol.
