In April, Gucci Mane's camp announced a forthcoming album collab with Diplo. "NEW EDM ALBUM WITH @diplo ON THE WAY !!!!!" it read, though @diplo was quick to axe the EDM label. For months, this was the only information we had regarding what is sure to be a watershed moment in American history. Gucci Mane's three year prison sentence makes it hard for us to get a quote and—as we found out the hard way—getting Diplo on record ain't all that easy, either.

Eventually though, we were able to grab some time with Diplo after his opening night performance at Bud Light's Whatever, USA in Catalina Island. He touches on working with Gucci Mane and Justin Bieber, as well as the upcoming "Where Are Ü Now" video. Check it out.
