Sweden Democrat reports rappers to the police

A member of the Sweden Democrats has filed a police report against two Swedish rappers for a song that allegedly threatens party leader Jimmie Åkesson, Swedish Radio's P3 channel reports.

In the song, called Black Doves And Wilted Lilies, rapper Jason "Timbuktu" Diakité sings: "Dunk Jimmie yellow and blue," a Swedish expression that's akin to saying "beat someone black and blue."

That line prompted Sweden Democrat member Tony Bengtsson to file a police report against Diakité and Sebbe Staxx, who is also featured on the track.

In his report to the police, Bengtsson wrote that "the only purpose of this song was to legitimize violence against the Sweden Democrats".

Diakité was recognized at ceremony in Parliament on Wednesday, though several politicians boycotted the event saying his song was a political threat. Diakité has said he has always rejected violence and called the lyrics in question a "play on words".
