Diplo shares brilliant Kanye West story

Just as Mad Decent drops 5th annual Christmas mix...

 

EDM DJ Diplo shared his best Kanye West story recently during a TBS Storyville special. The hilarious clip provides some fascinating insight into West’s ‘Watch The Throne’ sessions and West and fellow rap superstar Jay-Z reportedly rented out the Mercer Hotel in New York. 

During the clip, Diplo recounts one of his best Ye experiences, whereby he was summoned to the aforementioned hotel to produce a track. Before he knew it, a host of celebs had descended on the room, including Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, T-Pain and Kim Kardashian, who Ye hadn’t wed at the time. 

We’ll leave Diplo take it from here...

“So Kanye came back in, he opens the door… and he says, ‘Guys, I’m gonna marry Kim Kardashian, I’m gonna be president one day and I’m gonna be a fashion designer.’” As the man says, two out of three ain’t bad!

It’s been a busy time for Diplo recently, as Mad Decent also just dropped its 5th annual Very Decent Christmas compilation. The holiday-centric tracks are an excellent alternative to the Christmas music you’re sure to be sick of soon, and feature everyone from Major Lazer to Megatone. What’s more, you can listen to that one below…
