The perfect combination?

In a recent interview with The Fader, Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Pentz, got candid about his decision to transition from behind-the-scenes guy to leading man. Oddly enough, it was Justin Bieber who helped him solidify his position.

Diplo had known Justin Bieber and his manager Scooter for quite some time, and it was when Bieber hit a low point that Diplo stepped in.
