Words by Jillionaire—
O.G. LargeUp contributor Jillionaire had quite a year, touring the world with Major Lazer and doubling back across the globe on his own as a DJ. He checks in with his annual “best of everything” list, running through yearly highlights from video shoots in Jamaica to dust-dodging at Burning Man. Read on below, and make sure to check his 2013 Toppa Top 10 Electro-Caribbean Crossover Tunes countdown here.
Did too much stuff this year to be honest. Every day was a new adventure. Went snowmobiling in Aspen, went up to the top of the Eiffel Tower, Ibiza is my new favorite place, and the Baltic Coast in Poland is my second favorite. A lot of private jets, and even more Jeremy Scotts. The biggest Chicken n Beer thus far — Machel Montano and Sean Paul came through, with performances from Dominique Yung Unique, Jovi Rockwell and my bros Walshy Fire and Diplo. Spent my birthday by myself, lost in Buenos Aires. Jimmy Fallon. Our performance at Cannes Film Festival got shot up by some lunatic, but we went on anyway. Took a helicopter from Philly to the Hamptons. Bread and Butter Berlin. Sailing in Stockholm. Disneyland.
