M.I.A. Puts Diplo On Blast; Claims He was Off Cheating On Her While She Worked On Their Music And Had A Dartboard With Her Face

Posted at August 28th, 2017 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in Dance Music, Entertainment, Featured, News

Everybody knows Diplo & M.I.A. have had a bumpy history. They both dated at some point and as much as they meant to each other both artistically and romantically, they have had a lot of animosity over the years. M.I.A. gave us the latest doze of the very same with her latest Instagram post which is pretty much a rant about the perception of her as an artist.

 

 

She was adamant at proving that in no way did Diplo discover her. In fact she says she was the one who got down to it and discovered Diplo’s and Major Lazer‘s sound. She claims Wesley isn’t the loving, full of life goofy characters that is brimming with positivity who can’t seem to do a single thing wrong. In fact she claims while she was working on her music he was off cheating on her. According to her he even had a dart board with M.I.A.’s face on it.

 

 

It’s a pretty heartbreaking story. Check out the post below.

I just want to clear this up Here's a lil story of how this happened. I discovered diplo because Steve Mackey played me a song by him released on big dada! I found out on a "flyer" he was djing and spent 16 pounds and bought my own way into fabric club in London . No one put me on the list! Nobody paid for it! I approached him and gave him my record! There was no label no A N R no channels. a handful of people believed in me , then when I got a deal , they turned on me. This was why i forged my own path and style and genre. I didn't want anyone to say they made me! To this day so many people have made careers off me and the same people distort history destroy the story because of my politics , which he played a part in cementing. He said "politics is a terrible thing for music"in 2010 in the NYT article . During this time when 400 000 Tamil were getting bombed to death , he used to have a dart board of my face on his rider . Jus sayin . "He text me "you're walking backwards into a brick wall" when the NYT article came out. While I was defending privacy laws with a newborn baby like it's me against the world. No one came to my shows during this time because of that article and racist memes mad decent were spreading through hipsters. I let him cash in on the sound because I had no choice. I felt it was important to defend freedom of speech, even for American people and couldn't play the game. Everyone involved in major lazer now came together through me. I made boyz in Jamaica and Trinidad. I took switch there carried beers up the mountain everyday . Wes wasn't there because he was cheating on me in Brazil at the time. he turned up a year later and networked in JA saying he produced BOYZ coz the song blew in Jamaica. Walshy was the directors roommate and Chris was my day to day in Trinidad. it's important you don't see me as a Iil thing diplo discovered because I'm a brown woman , and this is the first story of a brown female musician who smashed it for the first time . That didn't happen because I accidentally walked passed diplo. Ta! This is literally 1% of the story!
