Wesley "Diplo" Pentz and Chris "Jillionaire" Leacock in Trindad, a print from the Universe Diplo book 128 Beats Per Minute
Hey, we know those dudes.

Philly-based, globally-manifested DJ (and now super-producer) Wesley “Diplo” Pentz had a book of his international exploits published by Universe today under the title 128 Beats Per Minute. The premise is simple: photog Shane McCauley followed Wes from his Mad Decent block parties in Philadelphia to gigs in Kingston, Tel Aviv and Hong Kong–among others (see Trinidad, above with frequent LargeUp contributor Jillionaire and watch the trailer below). Writer Alexander Wang provided the foreword and Friedrich Nietzsche provided the philosophical underpinnings. Seriously. Purchase the book via Amazon and in other Diplo-related lolz watch “Diplo Hates You” after the jump (and don’t miss Wes in his role as the laser in Major Lazer at the Roots Picnic)

    Hey fuck your wack-ass autostart videos. The fuck makes you think whatever bullshit you have loaded is better than what I’m listening to already. If I wanna listen to the fucking song I’ll hit play, okay player? #usability #dumbasses
