Lil Dicky on Snoop’s GGN

This week on GGN, Nemo Hoes sits down with Philly jawn Lil Dicky to talk about his music, his influences and his sex life. Dicky (government name David Burd) gives props to Snoop who co-signed his rap skills by appearing on the hit song “Professional Rapper” (also the name of Dicky’s debut album).

The animated music video for the track has racked up more than 17 million views on YouTube, just one example of Lil Dicky’s viral appeal. Another example is “$ave Dat Money (feat. Fetty Wap & Rich Homie Quan) which has reached 26 million views and counting. Snoop asks Lil Dicky how he pulled off the star-studded video with absolutely no budget.

Lil Dicky strategically launched a career targeting the comedic/satirical genre popularized by acts like Lonely Island and Eminem. His impeccable comedic timing led Newsweek to dub Dicky the “Jerry Seinfeld” of the rap game.

His end game? Two parallel careers one as a rapper and one as a comedian like Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino. Lil Dicky’s self-released full-length album has a ton of collabs including Snoop Dogg, Brendon Urie of Panic at the Disco, Jace of Two-9, T-Pain, and Hannibal Buress. Lil Dicky thanks Snoop Dogg for the life-changing experience of giving him a shot and believing in his talent.
