It shouldn't be much of a surprise that I write a lot of my blog posts well in advance of them being posted. This usually isn't a problem as I choose topics that have stood the test of time. That being said, I was pretty early on this one and I've been pretty obsessed with this rapper for the last couple weeks.
Lil Dicky is a jewish joke rapper that can legitimately rap. Unlike Lonely Island who have said that they invented that "fake rap shit", Lil Dicky has extra lean rhymes that easily puts him into MC status. I first heard about Lil Dicky from the Get Up on This podcast where he rapped the plot of Lion King, and I found out that he had successfully kickstarted his mixtape. I was blown away by what should have been an album release. Lil Dicky sets himself apart by connecting with real people and real problems in his brutally honest take on life. Added to this is his unbelievably tight rhymes and skilled flow that I get sucked into so easily. The following is my favourite song from his mixtape.
