Diplo Talks Working With Justin Bieber, Train Tour With Skrillex, And Upcoming Snoop Dogg & Major Lazer Collaboration

Fuse caught up with Diplo this weekend at Bonnaroo 2012 to get up to speed on a bunch of things he has going on in 2012. To start, Diplo talks about working with Justin Bieber, saying that they put four or five "ideas" together, but only one record made the album. He also says that Justin Bieber is "good at everything," including ping pong and rapping.

Diplo also speaks on his upcoming train tour in Canada with Skrillex, which will also include Grimes, reminiscent of the 1970 train tour featuring the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and others, that was documented in the 2003 film Festival Express. And he discusses the upcoming Snoop Dogg reggae album that will feature artists from Mavado to Willie Nelson. He even spoke on his recent work with Riff Raff—and why people hate that he's working with him. 

Cool stuff. Check the interview above.
