During his rise to fame, Diplo worked with British musician M.I.A., an artist who is credited with giving him exposure in his early career. Later, he and fellow M.I.A. producer Switch created a Jamaican dancehall project titled Major Lazer. Since then, Diplo has worked on production and mixtape projects with many other notable pop artists, such as Britney Spears, Beyoncé, No Doubt, Justin Bieber, Usher, Snoop Lion, and G-Dragon.
His alias, short for Diplodocus, derives from his childhood fascination with dinosaurs. Currently he has been working on Madonna’s upcoming album and has collaborated with Skrillex to create a group Jack Ü.
He previously dated British-Sri Lankan singer and rapper M.I.A. for five years, from 2003 to 2008. He also has a son named Lockett, born in 2010. In July and August 2013, he was in a publicized Twitter feud with rapper Flo Rida. Diplo claimed that Flo Rida’s video for the track “Can’t Believe It”, featuring Pitbull copied his video for the track “Butter’s Theme” featuring Gent & Jawns. Flo Rida responded, claiming that he had never seen the video. – Wikipedia
