During a Guy Raz YouTube interview, Diplo discussed his DJing career and explained that pursuing this path was not initially part of his plans; he was exploring new opportunities as a young person.

I didn't have a plan, honestly; I was like, “Let me do this for now; I'm young, and maybe I'll get a job soon, but let me try to do this…there's so many opportunities to be a DJ”…back then there wasn't much of a road map and we just kind of did it because I thought it was part of the culture and I was like, “I'm gonna do something, this is where I'm from…I want to be part of this culture”.

The American music producer’s prominence in the music industry emerged with international notoriety after collaborating with M.I.A. on the Piracy Funds Terrorism Vol. 1 mixtape. Further collaborations resulted in Diplo joining hands with DJ Switch and M.I.A. to create the Grammy-nominated track Paper Planes.
