Wesley Pentz, better known as Diplo, is unquestionably one of the most dynamic forces in music today. He is as much as an international brand (tastemaker, spokesman, curator) as he is a musician/DJ/producer. Year after year, he’s proven himself to be an ubiquitous cultural figure, consistently bridging high and low, mainstream and underground, with remarkable tact and reverence.

Occupation: DJ, producer, record label owner, product endorser, technology investor, soccer team owner, fashion model, actor, filmmaker, author, cartoon creator

Reason why he once missed a meeting with Beyoncé: he got locked up after a bar fight

Artists for whom he has produced for: Usher, M.I.A., Drake, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Madonna, Britney Spears

A few of the figures he looks up to most: Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Premier, The Pharcyde, Wu-Tang Clan

Meaning behind his stage name: Diplo derives from Diplodocus, a long-necked herbivore from the Jurassic period, which was his favorite dinosaur as a kid

3 of the most influential countries he visited before his career took off: Brazil, Japan, India
