Diplo Makes Country-Fried Cameo in ‘Old Town Road’ Video With Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus


Diplo is a DJ and producer that defies classification, but did you know he's also a model? Yeah, he's got certified washboard abs, which makde him the perfect crossover cameo star for the big-budget "Old Town Road" music video.

Lil Nas X has one helluva pop cultural phenomenon on his hands. He and his buddy Billy Ray Cyrus got a whole host of cool cats to appear in the minifilm. Vince Staples is in it. Rico Nasty is there. Even Chris Rock makes an appearance. Diplo tweeted that his own role was "small but important."

Diplo is knee deep in the country world, as of late. He recenly released a fiddle-tinged tune with Cam called "So Long," and he was the first DJ to perform at Stagecoach Festival in April.
