After entering the rap scene, Lil Dicky has introduced a creative and witty style of rapping characterized by rapid-fire delivery of lyrics that usually come with a ton of wordplay. Although he originally began his music career to bring some attention to himself as a comedian, he soon dedicated all his efforts to writing and performing. In 2013, he released the lead single from his So Hard mixtape that took a total of two years to create, and it gained over a million views within 24 hours on YouTube. Once "Ex-Boyfriend" went viral, Lil Dicky went on to raise funds for the second stage of his career, and he was soon performing at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia. In 2018, Lil Dicky also went on his Australian tour, where he revisited some of his roots from prior study abroad days.
From a Freaky Friday to an Earth-Saving Collaboration
David Andrew Burd, now known as Lil Dicky, was born and raised in Philadelphia in an upper-middle-class Jewish family. His upbringing is often the subject of his records, and he steps away from the thoughts surrounding the religion of his family. Once his lyrical ability went viral, artists like Snoop Dogg and Chris Brown took notice. Lil Dicky ended up collaborating with both of these artists relatively soon. The collaboration project allowed Lil Dicky to boost his career even further with songs like "Freaky Friday" and "Professional Rapper," both of which are accompanied by hilarious videos. Outside of his rapping and comedy career, Lil Dicky is also an environmentalist who strongly argues for preserving the earth's natural resources and for fighting against global warming. This is best demonstrated by his song "Earth" that was made with the help of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and a slew of superstar celebrities. With more than 160 million views, the song has allowed Lil Dicky to raise a substantial amount of money that was donated to DiCaprio's foundation.
