Lil Dicky is an American rapper, comedian, and environmentalist. He came to prominence with the release of the music video of his song “Ex-Boyfriend” (on April 25, 2013), which went viral with more than one million views on YouTube in 24 hours. He released his debut album Professional Rapper on July 31, 2015. In 2018, his song “Freaky Friday”, featuring Chris Brown, became a worldwide hit. He also gained attention for his 2019 music video “Earth”, which featured many singers and actors including Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Kevin Hart, Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth, Katy Perry and Leonardo DiCaprio. The song was made to raise awareness about the environment, pollution and climate change. Burd stated that a portion of the song’s proceeds are being donated to a variety of environmental charities.
Burd grew up in an upper-middle-class Jewish family in the Elkins Park neighborhood of Cheltenham Township, on the north border of Philadelphia. He attended Cheltenham High School. Speaking about his time in high school, Burd said “I was a pussy. I was really awkward looking. I wasn’t getting any girls at all, but I was very class-clownish and I got good grades.” After graduating from high school, Burd began attending the University of Richmond, where Burd’s step brother and comedy rapper Phatdik also attended at the same time. Burd graduated summa cum laude in 2010. He then relocated to San Francisco, California, where he worked in account management at the advertising agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. After reimagining his monthly progress report as a rap video, the company brought him to work in their creative department, where he wrote copy for ads such as the NBA’s “BIG” campaign.
Burd’s interest in music started when he was a child, listening to hip-hop music and alternative rock, Burd began rapping in the fifth grade after doing a history report on Alexander Pushkin using rap music. In his youth, the hip-hop and rap music artists Burd listened to most were Nas and Jay-Z.
Burd says he initiated his rap career “simply to get attention comedically, so I could write movies, write TV shows and act”. However, he “fell in love with rapping” and says he’s “not leaving that game until proved point”.
Burd began working on his debut mixtape, So Hard, in 2011. The mixtape took Burd over two years to finish because he still had his day job at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners during its development. Burd recorded a majority of his early material for So Hard on his MacBook Pro and a $400 microphone; in 2013 he began releasing one song per week for five months straight. On April 23, 2013, Burd released the music video for his song “Ex-Boyfriend”, the mixtape’s leading single. The music video went viral, receiving one million views within 24 hours of being posted on YouTube. Burd released a new song or music video, in a series titled Hump Days. Following the release of 32 songs and 15 music videos, Burd launched a Kickstarter, stating, “I’ve officially run out of money… In a nutshell, you are funding phase two of my rap career.” The month-long crowdfunding period began on November 20, 2013, with the goal of raising $70,000 in order to enable Burd to create and produce more music, music videos, and go touring. The Kickstarter well exceeded its target, raising $113,000.
