Thomas Wesley Pentz (born November 10, 1978), better known by his stage name Diplo, is an American DJ, music producer, rapper, and songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. He founded and manages record company Mad Decent, as well as co-founding the non-profit organization Heaps Decent. Among other jobs, he has worked as a school teacher in Philadelphia. He is also the co-creator and lead member of the electronic dancehall music project, Major Lazer. His 2013 EP "Revolution" debuted at #68 on the Billboard 200.

During his rise to fame, Diplo worked with British musician M.I.A., an artist who is credited with giving him exposure in his early career. Later, he and fellow M.I.A. producer Switch created a Jamaican dancehall project titled Major Lazer. Since then, Diplo has worked on production and mixtape projects with many other notable pop artists, such as Britney Spears, Beyoncé, No Doubt, Justin Bieber, Usher, Snoop Lion, CL and G-Dragon. His alias, short for Diplodocus, derives from his childhood fascination with dinosaurs. Currently he has been working on Madonna's upcoming album and has collaborated with Skrillex to create the group Jack Ü.
