Lil Dicky is an American rapper, comedian, and actor who is best known for his hip hop catalog, which includes his first album, Professional Rapper. He also helped make a TV show called “Dave in 2020.”
Dicky was born in March of 1988 in a township called Cheltenham, which is on the northern edge of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We know his mom’s name is Jeanne, but we don’t know anything about his dad.
Dicky grew up in an upper-middle-class Jewish home in the Elkins Park neighborhood. The rapper was born with a tangled urethra and hypospadias, which had to be fixed through multiple surgeries.
Burd went to the Seeds of Peace International Camp in Israel when he was 14 years old. He went to Cheltenham High School when he got back to the United States. Then, he went to the University of Richmond, where he got his degree with honors in 2010.
Dicky moved to San Francisco, California, after he graduated from college. There, he worked at a company called Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. He would end up in their creative department in the end.
Lil Dicky Career
Dicky worked at his day job while making his first mixtape from 2011 to 2013. The first single from the tape, “Ex-Boyfriend,” was watched more than a million times on YouTube in the first 24 hours after it came out.
Fast forward to 2022, and just on Spotify, Dicky has 4.3 million monthly listeners. He has also worked with Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, Fetty Wap, and a lot of other artists.
Since his first live show in 2014, the musician from Pennsylvania has been on the road a lot. He has been the main act on six different tours, the most recent of which was his 2018 Australia and New Zealand Tour.
Professional Rapper, Dicky’s first studio album, came out in July of 2015. The 20-song project debuted at number 7 on the Billboard 200 chart, and the RIAA in the United States has since certified it as Gold.
Dicky is a rapper, but that’s not all he does. Dave, his FXX show, came out in 2020 and was praised by critics. The show was made with the help of Jeff Schafer, and it tells a made-up story about Burd’s life as a rapper.
Earth by Lil Dicky
Back in 2019, Dicky released a song called “Earth,” which encouraged people to be better about the environment. Even though critics didn’t like it, Dicky donated some of the money to local charities.
People like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and even Leonardo DiCaprio were in the music video for the song, among many others.
Like most entertainers, Dicky has a lot of fans on social media, which helps him make money all year long. First of all, the rapper has 3.1 million Instagram followers on top of his 685,200 Twitter followers. Also interesting is that 7.8 million people follow him on YouTube.
His merchandise, which he started selling a few years ago, is another thing that adds to his net worth. On the website, fans can buy clothing and accessories, such as a “Dave Plush.”
The content creator with many skills has made a lot of money by being successful in many different areas. In the last few years, he has always made money from rapping and acting.
Style of music
People often say that Dicky’s music is funny and easy to understand. In fact, the rapper loves comedy more than anything else. He once said that he started making music “just to get attention comedically, so I could write movies, write TV shows, and act.”
Also, he has said that Childish Gambino, J. Cole, ASAP Rocky, and Snoop Dogg are some of the artists whose music he likes. On the TV show Dave, Dicky is often the opposite of self-centered. In fact, he often shoots himself on his own tracks.
Lil Dicky Girlfriend
The public seems to think that Dicky has only had one serious relationship since he started rapping. Molly was the girl’s name, and Dicky even wrote a song about her.
As far as we know, Dicky is single right now. Ally, a kindergarten teacher, is his love interest on the show. Some people think she is based on a past or present love, but that hasn’t been proven.
