I salt and pepper my mango

from M.I.A. – Sunshowers Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Peep Maya’s recipe for mango:

In Sri Lanka, Mexico and the Caribbean they put salt and pepper on green mangos. When it’s warm, they put chili peppers and salt. It’s amazing. I used to eat them on the way to school in Sri Lanka. The other meaning would be that I present an alternative to what already exists in your everyday stereotypical convention.
