"The DJ world is the corniest fucking group of people …"

Trends come and go. What's hip now won't be so in a few years. Eventually, we'll all be sitting around, having a great laugh at what used to be, pining for the 'good 'ol days' all while shaking our fists at the new generation of assholes. It's what happens. It's what always happens.

But when you're an architect of the biggest music phenomenon to hit popular culture in, arguably, ever, there's a different perspective of it. You see the good, you live the bad. Diplo, a man whose name is synonymous with the dance culture, hates what he's helped build, and went off on the EDM scene in a recent interview with Billboard to air some laundry.

"The DJ world is the corniest fucking group of people," he says. "We’re not celebrities, we’re not famous for any good reason. We’re just … really lame. Besides people like Dillon Francis, who makes fun of the whole thing, or Calvin Harris, it’s a sinking ship. It’s a really lame culture. I’m sad that I’m part of it, but I play the game.”

For someone who has his hands in everything from Snoop Dogg to the pop charts, it really isn't unreasonable for a guy like him to feel the way he does. At 37, he's been on the viewing end of a scene gone too big for longer than most of his fans have been alive, and is one of the few who've earned the right to critique. Sure, the whole Bieber thing is pretty unforgivable, but dude's making his money and holds no apologies for it. Can't blame him.

He's not, not right about the whole thing?
