The Anti-Rap = More Real Rap

First and foremost, I’m not a huge Lil Dicky fan even though he grew up in our backyard (Cheltenham). I’ve listened to a few of his tracks and some I enjoy but others I think are tough listening. That being said, Professional Rapper is a great track. Dicky’s self awareness shines through in this song and having Snoop back him up gives it credibility.

If you wanna do this, then you won’t get far acting like a little bitch
Nah, that’s my niche!
Don’t get offended by this, but that’s the market y’all missed
That’s the target I’ll hit
And that’s the heart of my pitch
I wanna do this whole thing different

lil-dicky-philadelphia-tourDicky knows his target and hits it with “funny rap”. It isn’t the traditional rap but he’s creating his own method of delivering content. He hits and misses on various tracks (and 90 minutes is far too long for his album) but even though I don’t consider myself a “dickhead” yet, I’ll give him a chance.

And my favorite line from Snoop

Why does everything you say sound so soft?

The next best track and definitely worth listening too as the hook is tight.
