I'm all tome like the wall at the bank.
If there were an artist on the Freshman '16 that was more of the contradiction of the traditional rapper it would be Lil Dicky, but on the other side of that of the spectrum if were a rapper being measured with the most bars on the Freshman '16 cover it would be Lil Dicky. With an awkward style and a killa flow, Lil Dicky is steadily paving his own lane in hip-hop. His biggest hit to date '$ave Dat Money' ft. Fetty Wap and Rich Homie Quan, has over 47 million views, which is funny since it is also a contradiction of the average rap song. Where he advocates for you to save your money opposed to the normal rap song that glorifies spending excess amounts of money on houses, cars, clothes, hoes, meals, rap videos, and of course the club. The path to stardom has also differed from Lil Dicky, so much in hip-hop we hear about the struggle, we hear about the lifestyle of growing up in the ghetto and hustling to make a way out, while music ultimately becoming the avenue in which rappers make it. In Lil Dicky's case he grew up pretty much well off in a middle-class suburban neighborhood and also went on to join corporate America at an advertising agency, before deciding to quit and pursue a career in rapping. And as his resume states on 'Professional Rapper' a song with the legendary Snoop Dogg, Lil Dicky shows he is qualified and is prepared for all that comes with being a professional rapper. At first look many people write off Lil Dicky, he's awkward, he's white, he's not wearing the Cuban link chain nor is he Polo'd down to the socks. But I think 9 people out of 10 would admit after you get past all that the talent and the bars blow you away. He also gives hope to the 20-year old somethings out still chasing a dream. So if 15 minutes of fame is a real thing, then Lil Dicky is undeniable is on the clock. Here are some quick facts about Lil Dicky.
