Diplo is the focus of a new short documentary, “Florida to California,” charting his career from his 2004 debut to the EP he released earlier this year.
The standout moment of the 8-minute documentary, directed by Kyle DePinna, is when Diplo professes his love for hip-hop: “Hip-hop is everything. Hip-hop is a mashup of so many different things.”
The short is a succinct trip from his beginnings in South Florida to his rise to stardom in Philadelphia to his latest EP, California, named for the state where it was made and where he now works.
It features appearances from Justin Bieber, Tyler, The Creator, Madonna, Snoop Dogg, Post Malone, M.I.A, French Montana, Steve Aoki, Skrillex and more.
