After Deadmau5' recent 'button-pushers' tirade, the art of DJing continues to get a verbal bashing, this time around from the Snoop producing one half of Major Lazer, Diplo.
In an interview with Vibe magazine, Diplo had a dig at the very activity that helps score him an income:
“Sometimes I make more money in a weekend than my grandpa made in a year. Being a DJ is pretty bullshit. I’m lucky I can produce records, too, because DJs don’t do shit. They just fucking play records. Usher is trained to dance. Justin Bieber had to train 24 hours a day to be a performer. What I do is pretty simple. It’s a good time to be a DJ and make good money, but you definitely can’t have an ego doing this shit because it’s not that cool.”
