David Andrew Burd, popularly known by his stage name Lil Dicky, is an American rapper and comedian. As a rapper, Lil Dicky gained widespread recognition after releasing the music video of his song Ex-Boyfriend.

Lil Dicky was born on March 15, 1988, in Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania, to Jeanne Burd.
He studied at Cheltenham Township High School in Pennsylvania before attending the University of Richmond’s E. Claiborne Robins School of Business, where he graduated summa cum laude in 2010.
After graduating from university, Dicky moved to San Francisco, California, where he landed an account management job at the advertising firm Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.
Lil Dicky made his foray into the world of creative work when he decided to submit his mandatory monthly progress report as a rap video.
Impressed by his creativity, the company decided to move him into the creative department, where he started writing copy ads for numerous advertising campaigns, including for the National Basketball Association (NBA)’s “BIG” campaign.
In 2011, Lil Dicky kicked off his rapping career by working on his debut mixtape, So Hard. According to him, the mixtape would serve as a launchpad for his career in comedy and screenwriting.
It was not until 2013 that Dicky finished working on his debut mixtape.
This is understandable, considering that he was producing the mixtape while still working his advertising job. However, the wait was worthwhile, as the debut single from the mixtape, titled Ex-Boyfriend, was an instant success, especially on YouTube.
Banking on the success of Ex-Boyfriend, Lil Dicky decided to venture fully into the music industry.
He released several songs and videos as part of a series known as Hump Days. Eventually, he was able to release 32 songs and 15 music videos through his Hump Days series.
Shortly after, Lil Dicky claimed to have run out of money.
He launched a month-long crowdfunding campaign on November 20, 2013, in a bid to raise $70,000 to fund his next music and video projects. The Kickstarter campaign was a tremendous success, raising $113,000.
As was previously indicated, the proceeds from Lil Dicky’s Kickstarter campaign went towards funding more music and videos, eventually culminating in the release of his debut studio album on July 31, 2015, titled Professional Rapper.
