Favorite Quotes from Lil Dicky 

“You hear a lot of rap songs about spending money. I thought, wouldn’t it be funny to make a song about saving money because it’s ironic, but beyond irony, I genuinely have pride in saving money.” – Lil Dicky 

“People see a ‘South Park’ episode, and there’s racially insensitive jokes – nobody bats an eye because they’re expecting that in that context. In hip-hop, they don’t expect that kind of thing because it’s a white person in a predominantly black world.” – Lil Dicky 

“I care most about what rappers think about me as a rapper, and I’ve gotten a lot of praise. I think rappers understand I’m a really good rapper, and that means more to me than a random person, you know, ’cause they know what goes into making rap music.” – Lil Dicky 

“Usually, I think of the song, and then the video plays out in my head as I’m writing the song. I started rapping to become a comedian, so I’m certainly thinking about the visual component of things beyond just the music most of the time.” – Lil Dicky 

“As a public figure, I’m always interested in being part of brands that I actually enjoy. So, I would never do something with somebody I don’t believe in, a product I don’t believe in. There are so many products out there that I love that I’d chomp at the bit to be a part of their campaign.” – Lil Dicky
