Internet famous rapper Lil Dicky performing at alma mater, U of R

David Burd, whose music videos have amassed millions of views online, will perform Friday evening at Club Tucan.

From The Collegian:

Richmond alumnus turned famous comedian and rapper David Burd, known by his fans as ‘Lil Dicky,’ will be performing for Richmond students on Friday evening.

The event will take place at Club Tucan at 10:30 p.m. Tickets are required, but can be bought at the door.

“I heard his name before, but never listened to his music,” Sarah Styslinger said, a Westhampton College senior who plans to attend the event. “I think it’s exciting to have a Richmond grad performing on homecoming weekend.”

Burd initially achieved fame in 2013 when he released the comedic music video ‘Ex-Boyfriend,’ in which he raps about meeting his girlfriend’s ex boyfriend and becomes extremely insecure regarding his own stature. The video garnered over one-million views in 24 hours.

If you haven’t heard of Burd, you could be easily forgiven; his success has mainly come through his viral videos and a collaboration with Snoop Dogg. You can view that video below. Caution: NSWF, especially due to strong language.
