Every rapper has a background story that shapes the artist they become and so does Lil Dicky but his history a bit unique.
Before he blew up he was a creative at an advertising agency and although it might be unusual, he still thinks it impacted his success in the rap game.
"Working at an ad agency really helped my career, because it showed me what was technologically possible, he says. "There was this whole production at my agency when I learned how easy it was to shoot and edit videos. That really opened my eyes to what I could accomplish on a DIY level."
His single "Earth" is out now.
