Diplo claims Kanye West told him about his idealistic plans for his future before the rest of the world knew about them - specifically concerning his now-wife, Kim Kardashian.
During an interview with TBS's Storyville, the 'Be Right There' hitmaker recalled his experience at one of Ye and Jay Z's 'Watch The Throne' sessions.
According to Diplo, the duo rented out the entire Mercer Hotel in New York, "because that's what you do when you're Kanye West", and Diplo was asked to produce a track for the album.
He explains meeting the two rappers as well as Jeff Bhasker - one of Ye's favoured producers - T-Pain and the Olsen twins, among other industry figures.
Diplo recalled the moment Kanye entered the room with Kardashian at one point, who was still married to NBA player Kris Humphries at the time.
The producer claims that the following day, Yeezy predicted he'd marry the reality TV star.
"Guys, I'm going to marry Kim Kardashian. I'm going to be president one day. And I'm going to be a fashion designer," Kanye allegedly announced to everyone in the private room.
The superstar pair married in 2014 during an elaborate ceremony in Florence, Italy.
The 'Ultralight Beam' rapper famously stated his plans to run for President during his acceptance speech at the MTV VMA's in 2015.
Fashion-wise, Kanye has built a successful empire in the form of his popular Yeezy brand.
