 LIL DICKY ANNOUNCES 'LIFE LESSONS WITH LIL DICKY' HEADLINE TOUR

Multi-platinum selling artist Lil Dicky will embark on an international fall headline tour, titled “Life Lessons with Lil Dicky,” set to kick off on 9th October in Manchester.

Lil Dicky’s newest release, “Freaky Friday,” featuring GRAMMY-winning, multi-platinum selling entertainer Chris Brown, debuted at #1 on iTunes overall songs charts and #1 on Apple Music Top Songs chart, while the video surpassed 10M+ views in less than 24 hours, and over 800M streams to date, making it his biggest record yet. Additionally, the multi-hyphenate talent is currently shooting a pilot for a half-hour comedy based on his life for FX Network, which is being executive produced by Dave Burd, aka Lil Dicky, as well as Kevin Hart and Scooter Braun.

Lil Dicky erupted literally overnight, when his debut video garnered a million views in just 24 hours. Since then, the prolific entertainer has racked up hundreds of millions of views, a #1 album and an overwhelming fanbase. That fanbase expands to his peers, including Snoop Dogg, Fetty Wap and Rich Homie Quan, all of whom appeared on his acclaimed debut album, Professional Rapper.

Professional Rapper debuted as the #1 Rap Album, #1 Comedy Album, #1 Independent Album, and #1 Digital Album on the Billboard charts, and #1 overall on iTunes. The first single, “$ave Dat Money,” skyrocketed to RIAA Platinum-certified status and was named "the song of our generation" by BuzzFeed, while the video has since surpassed 96M views. The following single, the title track featuring Snoop Dogg, also garnered more than 100M views on YouTube and continued to solidify Lil Dicky as a musical force to be reckoned with. 

He has since gone on to win the People’s Choice Webby Award for Best Online Film and Video: Music Video and was chosen as one of XXL’s Freshman Class 2016, following in the footsteps of prior “class members” such as Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Wiz Khalifa, and many others.
