I spent the last ten months creating this video. It stars John C Reilly, the wolves from Game of Thrones, my brain, dinosaurs, aliens, soldiers and other cool stuff. Here's a link to the video: https://youtu.be/NWWeQlXfSa0 Proof: https://i.redd.it/744fybbu4yqy.jpg

Did you really use your bar mitzvah money to the get the rap shit started?

Lil-Dicky9595 karma


asitz6796 karma

Hey David,

I get mistaken for you a lot, to the point that I have a whole shtick I run through where I just pretend to be you and go with it. Its shown me how terribly annoying being famous can be. I've started collecting pictures with "fans" calling them my #LilDickyPics

  • Do you cause this problem for a lot of Jewish doppelgangers?
  • Can we get a picture together to add to my #lildickypics?
  • Any tips for interacting with "fans" so I can make it more authentic?

Happy Passover btw. (I don't think we look too similar but I get mistaken for you 2-3x a week)

Edit: If we could get a picture or video with all your doppelgangers that'd be awesome.

Edit 2: for the people asking for pics do you not know how hyperlinks work?

Lil-Dicky16342 karma

the funny thing is, i get mistaken for me a lot. like in the sense that people come up to me ALL the time and say "you look just like lil dicky". and i go, i am he. and then they go, no you aren't. and then i go okay. and then they go are you really him? i go yea. they go "rap". isn't that crazy?

Masonjes519 karma

Dude same, I pretty much asked the same thing. Maybe this is more common than we thought!

asitz903 karma

didn't know more shared this burden. Its to the point that its gotten kind of annoying with how often people ask me. Like fuck whatever I'm doing, they've gotta interupt my conversation or attempt to get a drink to tell me they're a huge fan.

would be cool if we could all collaborate on something

Lil-Dicky3431 karma

should we all get on a track?

brittanynicole886500 karma

Do you fuck with the war?

Lil-Dicky12814 karma

no i dont fuck with the war

titsmcgee235468 karma

When you were on Jake and Amir's podcast "If I Were You" you said your dick was too small to have sex from the side, but in your new video, it shows you doing so. Has your dick grown since the podcast?

Also, will you make another appearance on Jake and Amir's podcast? Thanks!

Lil-Dicky7783 karma

i knew this would get called out. it kind of is too small most of the time. but sometimes i can pull it off, if the girl gives me the right leverage.

i hope i do, i love those guys.

ariler5239 karma

Previously you came out with the STM music video which cost you $600. This time you spent nearly $700,000 on another perfect video. Why did you decide to splurge so much on the new project?

Lil-Dicky9110 karma

CGI man. CGI is so fucking expensive. when i talk about dinosaurs, you can do some cheap, cheesy animation, or try to make it look as real as the movies. to make it look as real as the movies, it's gonna cost you a pretty penny. i also have way more money in the bank to spend than i did when save dat money came out. so i could make these moves easier.

aaronjh185075 karma

Do you still go on a lot of tinder dates? Not in this AMA's title anymore

Lil-Dicky4540 karma

i dont tinder as much, no.


The real question is does your tinder profile really say that you're 6'?

Lil-Dicky3128 karma

yes. it does

adub8874574 karma

Hey man. Real talk. You have the hottest chicks in your videos. What steps do you take to make sure you don't pop a boner on set?

Lil-Dicky16193 karma

jerk off every morning before you go in...but honestly, i get boners. i can't help it. i tell the girls "i'm sorry if i get aroused, and i'm sorry if i don't." pretty cool line right

Andrew_j22884297 karma

Hey there, LD. I love your AKA's. Any chance I can get one?

Lil-Dicky8863 karma

AKA ketchup packet

Expulsure3386 karma

If you could collab with any artist, past or present, who would you pick?

Lil-Dicky5935 karma


Lil-Dicky2915 karma

guys thank you so much for coming! i gotta get back to work. i love you all, stay happy!

bfinger442536 karma

When is the new music coming, LD? It's been almost 2 years since Professional Rapper came out.

Lil-Dicky6310 karma

be patient, it takes me a while. i'm working all the time. it'll always be worth the wait, but rushing it and making subpar content is the last thing i want to do. i have really high hopes.

el_blacksheep2429 karma

So like, we should check back again tomorrow? Or nah?

bfinger44543 karma

Thanks for the response. Glad to hear you're back in the studio instead of doing Trojan commercials

Lil-Dicky1974 karma

i love those trojan commercials! Don't forget, comedy is just as important to me as rap. fans of my music will have to understand that as my career evolves. i really want to do both.

RiceeeChrispies2522 karma

Be honest with us. How small is your dick, Lil Dicky?

Lil-Dicky7377 karma

2 inches soft, 5 hard, great girth tho.

stttgttt2206 karma

What's good Mr. Leftward-Sloping Penis! What in your opinion was more iconic: rapping with Snoop, or getting head from Juanita in his office?

Lil-Dicky3162 karma

youd have to put them neck and neck, no pun intended

lilboi694202052 karma

Do you eat ass?

Lil-Dicky3965 karma

no i havent, but my bitches ass's still look juicyyyyyyy

bdlatina1879 karma

Being a Richmond, VA native, I am curious as to why you chose UR over all of the other schools. It is an incredibly nice school, but why did you choose UR specifically?

Lil-Dicky2777 karma

i wanted a pretty campus, somewhere not too far from home (philly) but not too close. and a good school, with a small undergrad total. checked all those boxes

AgressiveVagina1730 karma

How long do you think it will take for "SOMEBODY SUCCCKK MEEE" to catch on as a worldwide phenomenon?

Lil-Dicky2643 karma

mannnnn. hopefully not too long. do you like it. do you think it's funny

Lil-Dicky1708 karma

guys, i'll be sticking around for another half hour. just a heads up

Skippertech1693 karma

Any plans to collaborate with Drake or Chance the Rapper? That would be crazy

Lil-Dicky2697 karma

i'd love nothing more. hopefully one day

obvioustroway1647 karma


Thanks for Doing the AMA man.

My biggest question is...

Are you actually as frugal as Save Dat Money suggests?

Lil-Dicky5111 karma

im pretty cheap yea. i drive a 2002 toyota avalon. i do spend recklessly on food though. i just get so hungry

B_Hartman1596 karma

Hello David.

Have you ever met the legendary Larry David? If not, what would you want to go do with him should you meet in the future?

Lil-Dicky3215 karma

no but holy shit, yesterday, i took a meeting in his office. the guy im making my tv show with makes curb with larry. and it's the same office they shoot in for curb. i felt like i was really on the right track in life.

OGkillerturtle1474 karma

What is your favorite album? What makes you like it so much?

Lil-Dicky3985 karma

college drop out. i love almost every song, it came out when i was like a junior in high school, i had never heard of kanye before that obviously, it was just a perfect storm.

DriveForFive2191074 karma

About how long after talkin wit a bitch did brain get to poop?

Lil-Dicky1602 karma

brain still gotta poop, look at his twitter @hardbodybrain

Deeleerious1065 karma

How much your Bar Mitzvah money, and what specifically did you invest in with the money to start off your career?

Lil-Dicky1880 karma

it was like 6k, and it was about 2k per video back then, so it bought me 3 videos. and my microphone.

treestars4thewin947 karma

If you had to get a tattoo of someone's face who would it be, where would you get it, and why?

Lil-Dicky2078 karma

hmmmm...maybe allen iverson's face on my heart. he just really impacted my life, growing up in philly.

kevin0627938 karma

What's some advice for us guys with Lil' Dicks?

Lil-Dicky3816 karma

don't even sweat it. guys are lucky that girls value personality so highly. if she likes you enough, she won't even care. she'll be so moved by how much she likes you that she'll orgasm easier than she would with a guy with a huge dick who isn't as cool as you. you should also do a lot of foreplay.

kaorte889 karma

Hey Dave! I am a huge fan of both you as a rapper and as a person. I've been impressed with how real you still are despite being so popular. Do you feel like your fame has affected you much on a personal level?

Loved the pillow taking vid. It was truly the best music video I have seen. It was exactly as I envisioned the song so I can see why it took 10 months. Worth the wait! By far my favorite song of yours!!

Keep it real, LD.

Lil-Dicky1419 karma

i dont think my fame has effected me in the slightest. i honestly barely feel famous, compared to where i envision ending up. so, i just think to myself about how small of a scale all of the attention is now, to what it will be like in three years. ask me again in three years. hopefully ill be the same dude. i think i will be. ive always envisioned this life for me, so none of if surprises me

ElChilon855 karma

Do you think the seam between your nuts means that we were once two different people?

Lil-Dicky1214 karma

i never thought about that. but no i dont think so

jacksonvstheworld832 karma

LD, longtime Dickhead here, seen you twice live and you put on an amazing show. Two questions feel free to not answer both.

1) when do we get a new project from you?

2) any thoughts of doing something comedic outside of hip hop?

Lil-Dicky1327 karma

1) i don't know that answer. this stuff takes me a while. and i was touring a lot last year so ive only had the last few months to lock down in the studio. just be patient, i never ever wanna rush stuff.

  1. yes for sure. im working on my own tv show. it's just as important to me as music.

nickcsmf830 karma

Hey LD, just wanted to say thanks for doing this and for finally releasing the Pillow Talking video - it was definitely worth the wait!

I'm assuming everyone else will ask about if/when you've got new music coming out, so my question is this: If you were trapped in an empty room with no doors or windows and only a perfect clone of yourself, would you fuck or fight the clone? You're released after an hour and no one will ever know what happened in the room.

Lil-Dicky1407 karma

i have to fuck him or fight him? only two options? id love to just talk to him...but if that's not an option. fight him. it would be such a good, evenly matched fight

Deckanater795 karma

Hey Dicky, big fan.

In your Snapchat recently, you had a clip of yourself rapping along with what sounded like a sneak peak of a new song from you. Can you confirm this and possibly give any further details on upcoming singles/ album?

Lil-Dicky1482 karma

im making new music all the time. some of it sucks. some of it is amazing. youll hear the good stuff only. been working a lot with brain lately too, he's been in the studio a ton. trying to get him out there.

Dangld603 karma

I love your music?

Lil-Dicky1067 karma


PcmrPcmr592 karma

What's your favorite rap album of all time? Besides your own

Lil-Dicky1234 karma

college drop out

kevin0627513 karma

How do you come up with some of your AKA ideas?

Lil-Dicky990 karma

i just force myself to sit there and thing of random thoughts. and all these random words and nouns come into my head. and i write them down, and pick my favorites

GrandestFan476 karma

LD! Grandest Fans here. We love how successful you have become, very well deserved.

Do you remember writing the ScanGauge Rap song for your Kickstarter?

We play it at every party!

Lil-Dicky553 karma

very very vaguely. im happy you guys liked it tho

djs2125381 karma

Has anyone ever sucked you off after you said "somebody suck me"?

Lil-Dicky640 karma


the_heartbreaksquid357 karma

What are the chances of LD getting a Frank Ocean feature on the next album?

Lil-Dicky811 karma

i should be so lucky. blond is my favorite album of the last 5 years.

LoonyTune93291 karma

How does one compare apples to oranges?

Lil-Dicky779 karma

easily. one is red. one is orange. one has one texture that's less juicy and slimy. the other is slimy. etc.

strumpster285 karma

Would you rather fight ten one syllable words or one ten syllable word?

Thanks for the art, by the way :)

Lil-Dicky701 karma

either or, because words can't hurt me!

ihaveasthmar250 karma

D, huge fan. What has been your favorite music video to make to date? They're all so clever and unique. Maybe share a cool story from one of the sets too?

Lil-Dicky621 karma

ex boyfriend no question. cuz i just knew the whole time it would change my life. and it was fun. and back then, you didnt have to get permits, do things officially, you just ran around with a camera and filmed. shout out brian storm - my DP

Nate1080p239 karma

Sup Dave?

Who was your favourite artist to collaborate with and why?

Also who would you most like to collaborate with in the future?

Lil-Dicky678 karma

well, a bunch of collabs happened digitally. brendon urie came into my studio though, and sang it right in front of me. so that was my favorite. because as soon as he sang, i knew he was perfect and it was cool to witness the moment in person.

NotBStew200 karma

Is brain going to feature on any new upcoming songs? Or was he just a one hit wonder?

Lil-Dicky405 karma

brain's been whippin it up

DrMilsap197 karma

Hey there Stem Cells,

Who in the music industry would you want most to feature in an upcoming single? Also, who is your musical idol? (If they're not the same one)

Big love from Israel, you're making every last one of us proud af.

Lil-Dicky313 karma

drake may be the answer to both questions. im coming to tel aviv for a festival early july, i better see you out there

stttgttt185 karma

LD - how have you changed the rap game?

Lil-Dicky916 karma

i think im doing a lot of stuff, on a pretty successful level, that's never been done before. i rap about sucking my own dick, ya know? and i still went platinum. i think that's pretty sick.

mik0tsi180 karma

Have you ever tought about changing your rapper name?

What did your parents and relatives say when u told them you're going to be a rapper named lil dicky?

Lil-Dicky682 karma

i think i have to see it through as lil dicky. i truthfully dont like introducing myself as lil dicky, ill always say dave. but lil dicky is like batman, it's a symbol more than a person. know what i mean

UhCrunch179 karma

Hello Mr. Bird,

Big fan! What was the process for filming this like? A few days of filming or did you practice and get it all shot in a day (minus CGI and shit)? BTS in the future...?

Sincerely, A Manilla Envelope

Lil-Dicky350 karma

this was 5 days of shooting. 3 for the bedroom scenes, and the set was built from scratch, we took the walls away during the cgi stuff and had green screens there. then we shot the soldiers stuff in one day. then we shot john c reilly one day

NotRyanHawyood168 karma

My fiance wants to invite you to our wedding. Not to preform or anything, just as a guest. If you got an invitation would you come?

Lil-Dicky667 karma

realistically, no. i barely have enough time to go to my friends' weddings. but i still love you guys and respect your union

brk_trt128 karma

Fucken loved this video, Dude. The production is sick!!! Especially loved all the attention to details you made, the shit on the side tables, no dabs shirt, but yo! the sound effects blew me away. Did you do those? Sounded so cray.

Lil-Dicky175 karma

no we hired a great sound design company, Voodoo Highway Music & Post Inc.

gberryhill117 karma

Can you tell us more about the show you're working on? Id love to see you in a comedy show or movie.

Lil-Dicky247 karma

based upon my real life and true experiences. just me being me. a guy trying to be a rapper

WillchairJimmy96 karma

How would you describe your relationship with James the squirrel?

Lil-Dicky160 karma

very up and down, hot and heavy. he loves me, he loves me not type of thing

kayray60395 karma


You are a lyrical genius and I love how your mind works. Love you lots.

My questionnnnn,

So ever since we met the Burds, I've been wondering if your mom has yet to have a conversation with Puff. Daddy's mom? Like have they been able to hash over the woes and worries of their rapper son's lives and did Momma Diddy get to tell momma Burd how she backs her the fugg up?

That would be a lunch I'd like to sit in on.

Lil-Dicky171 karma

no my mom has still yet to speak with mrs diddy. id pay so much money to see that. i say fugg too

conawaylax2292 karma

So I watched your freestyle on Sway in the Morning, and it was awesome! How memorable of an experience was that? Also side note, the line about Michelle Obama was incredible

Lil-Dicky193 karma

super memorable. i was so nervous. i dont know how i did so well. whenever i get scared about life, i watch that and remember how well i performed under pressure

kinetik0684 karma

Lil Dicky,

I'm a huge fan of your work, but more of your skill set. I like pillow talk, but the antagonist was probably my favorite on the album. Do you have any plans to make a serious hip hop record in the future?

Lil-Dicky337 karma

if by record you mean song, yeah. but a serious album, i just hope to god nothing happens in my life that would ever have me making 12 unfunny songs. that's just not who i am.

Dopest_Pope58 karma

Hey there! I just want to say that "Pillowtalk" was actually the first song I heard from you. My friend played it in my car on our way to football practice and we were laughing the whole way there. Since then I've been listening to everything. Just want you to know you've got a lot of fans (at least around me) here in SoCal.

Anyway, my question: How does it feel to be a professional rapper?

Lil-Dicky84 karma

i respect that. i like that's the first song you heard. it honestly feels amazing to be a professional rapper. its a true dream come true

MVass45 karma

LD, I'm pretty sure I got bars and people would like to hear them but I don't know what to do with that talent. How can I get my music heard if I'm rapping over instrumentals I find online? And how can I get in touch with people to make me beats or really learn the fundamentals behind making beats?

Lil-Dicky84 karma

thats how i started, just on instrumentals i found online. its totally possible. i would use these free, amazing beats to your advantage. take a drake beat and make a sick song out of it. industry beats are way better than ones you'll probably be able to get from some random producer you meet in your town. just be original and creative.

Zwiseguy1544 karma

Hey man,

The latest music video is flawless. 10/10, will watch again at least twice. It's great to see a young boy from the Philly suburbs making moves out there.

I saw you perform when you came to UMD last May with T-Pain. He put in work, sure, but between us, you carried the concert.

Seriously though, when are we getting another album? You put out life-changing stuff, and I'm hype for whatever you give us next.

Lil-Dicky87 karma

dude t pain killed that shit, that was my first time seeing him live and he blew me away. he has choreography! be patient about music. it takes me much longer to make than most artists. the music is very involved. and my personal bar is so high at this point, that it takes a lot to satisfy me. and if i'm not satisfied, i can't show you guys

bryantrode133 karma

What was your favorite thing about doing XXL and how was it being one of the only non-trap artists on there?

Lil-Dicky115 karma

i just loved being around all those rappers at once. it was fun and cool for me. i liked lil uzi's swag. like just walking around, he would be like "you see it right? you see it..." and it was sooo funny

darrell143731 karma

LD big fan. How do you feel about the future of the 76ers? And who is your MVP and ROY winners this year?

Lil-Dicky111 karma

i feel good, but id feel better if we got the lakers pick this year. and if everyone wasn't so goddamn hurt all the time.

MVP russ no question (what a good call to choose him for that song right)

ROY - Dario

brunseidon28 karma

Whattup, LD?

  • Do you fuck with the war?

  • Was “Pillow Talking” based on a real one night stand between you and a girl?


Lil-Dicky65 karma

it was loosely based on a few different encounters. and no, i dont fuck with the war

codesForLiving19 karma

What's the story behind the name Lil Dicky?

Lil-Dicky47 karma

made it up randomly the first day i got my computer and fucked around with garageband in 2010. called myself that as a joke, was listening to lil wayne, etc.

616wolverine17 karma

Hey Dave, did you vote in last year's election or have you still only voted at prom tho?

Lil-Dicky59 karma

i voted! i felt like it was necessary. didn't do me much good tho

krisburns53013 karma

Hey Dave,

During your time in the Bay Area did you ever try "Little Star Pizza"? If so (This is my girl and my GO TO spot whenever we're in the city and want to have a pizza picnic)

Follow up question:

Who's your favorite Tanner family member?

Lil-Dicky33 karma

yes many times. my roommates were obsessed. personally, im not too into corn dusted bottoms of my pizza tho. michelle

Pikachu3127 karma

What shows have you binge watched?

Lil-Dicky19 karma

house of cards, stranger things. first half of breaking bad. the wire

tottle3215 karma

Why the anti dabbing movement? I mean, I'm all for it, but where did it come from and what does it have to do with this video?

Lil-Dicky12 karma

to me, it's just enough already. it's too easy to do. too accessible. sick of seeing dumb ass white kids dabbing

laurenhumfries3 karma

What was it like working with Ian Eastwood?

Lil-Dicky5 karma

fantastic, he's a great dude

fevieiraleite3 karma

Hey Dicky,

Video is amazing. 10 months well spent.

My question for you is: have you considered doing any acting gigs at all? I feel like you would do good in a comedy movie or maybe an SNL skit.

Lil-Dicky8 karma

i wanna be a movie/tv star and comedy writer for sure. just as much as music

AUTOHAWK232 karma

Do you really make a living off of your music?
