Lil Dicky topped multiple charts with his debut album ‘Professional Rapper,’ surpassing fellow emcees such as Future, Migos, Drake, and others in weekly album sales. ‘Professional Rapper’entered the charts as the #1 Rap Album, #1 Independent Album, #1 Digital Album, #1 Comedy Album, #2 R&B / Hip Hop Album, and #3 Top Current Album. The album also peaked at #1 on iTunes (overall) and Google Play and landed Dicky his first spot on The Billboard 200 chart at #7.
Lil Dicky recently premiered his video for the album’s title track, featuring legendary Snoop Dogg, which garnered over one-million views in just two days – making it Dicky’s thirteenth music video with over a million views each. Dicky’s current radio single “$ave Dat Money” featuring Fetty Wap and Rich Homie Quan has set its course for the charts, after spiking at #4 on Spotify’s Global Top Viral Hits chart and becoming the top Shazam.
‘Professional Rapper’ features the aforementioned tracks, as well as previously released cuts “Lemme Freak,” “White Crime,” and “Classic Male Pregame,” and 11 additional tracks with featured guests including Fetty Wap, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain, Rich Homie Quan, Brendon Urie from Panic at the Disco, Hannibal Buress, Jace from Two-9, and Brain. ‘Professional Rapper’ is available now oniTunes.
With video views totalling over 40 million, a track that became the #1 most viral song IN THE WORLD on Spotify (“Lemme Freak”), a follow-up track that became the #4 most viral song in the world on Spotify (“$ave Dat Money” featuring Fetty Wap & Rich Homie Quan), multiple sold-out gigs and confirmed festival plays – all of which has been done independently – Philly-born Hip Hop sensation Lil Dicky’s road to his debut LP release is one that most new artists dream of walking. With jet-propulsion momentum behind him, including praise from the likes of The New York Times, BET, HipHopDX,MTV, Billboard, and many others, you can watch Dicky explain his road to #1 as part of a recent interview with Ambrosia For Heads.
After dropping his mixtape, ‘So Hard,’ in 2013 and cultivating a rabid fan base with his blend of Hip Hop and Comedy, Lil Dicky has dedicated his last two-years to tediously honing his craft as a lyricist, and is ready to be taken seriously as an emcee. “I really ended up falling in love with rap in the process and I don’t see myself going away from this anytime soon,” Dicky said in a recent interview with HipHopDX. “The mixtape to me felt like a comedian who is really good at rapping, whereas I think my debut album feels like a good rapper who’s funny. It’s subtle but there’s a difference.” ‘Professional Rapper’showcases Dicky – whose influences include Jay Z and Drake – as an evolved and confident lyricist with skills that have caught the attention of some heavy-hitters in the rap game.
