Rolling Stone just released a lengthy profile on Diplo, revealing that the DJ and producer, who got his start right here in Philly, will be collaborating with The Biebs during a four-day studio session this week.
Diplo has worked with artists like M.I.A, Snoop Dogg, Usher, Kanye and Chris Brown before, but this latest pairing is a bit unexpected, though I doubt it will hurt his career any more than that Blackberry commercial. Diplo told Jonah Weiner of Rolling Stone, “We met him [Bieber] when we were working with Usher. He came with this diamond-encrusted Rubik’s Cube someone had given him, just playing with it.” Why is that not surprising?
Diplo also weighs in on Chris Brown in the article, “Chris Brown served his sentence. What else can you do? I do think he’s an a**hole – like, at the Grammys, he could have been more graceful. But he’s an artist. He’s good at what he does.”
We highly suggest reading the full article over at RS but be forewarned; it will make your own life seem depressingly pathetic in comparison.
