With eleven music videos that have each garnered more than 1 million views (over 39 million in total), a track that became the #1 most viral song IN THE WORLD on Spotify (“Lemme Freak”), multiple sold-out gigs and confirmed festival plays – all of which has been done independently – Philly-born hip hop YouTube sensation Lil Dicky’s road to his debut LP release is one that most new artists dream of walking. With jet-propulsion momentum behind him, including praise from the likes ofThe New York Times, BET, Hip Hop DX, MTV, Billboard, and many others, Lil Dicky has set a date for his highly anticipated debut album, ‘Professional Rapper.’
The self-released full-length studio LP will be available on July 31 and will feature the previously released cuts “Lemme Freak,” “White Crime,” and the recent “Classic Male Pregame,” as well as 13 additional tracks and some exciting, soon-to-be-announced guests.

After dropping his mixtape ‘So Hard‘ in 2013, and cultivating a rabid fan base with his blend of rap and comedy, Lil Dicky has dedicated the last two-years tediously honing his craft as a lyricist, and is ready to be taken seriously as an emcee. “I really ended up falling in love with rap in the process and I don’t see myself going away from it anytime soon,” Dicky said in a recent interview withHipHopDX. “The mixtape to me felt like a comedian who is really good at rapping, whereas I think my debut album feels like a good rapper who’s funny. It’s subtle but there’s a difference.” ‘Professional Rapper’ will showcase Dicky – whose influences include Jay Z and Drake – as an evolved and confident lyricist with skills that have caught the attention of some heavy-hitters in the rap game. “I have some great collaborations on the album and a couple of them will probably shock a lot of people. I’m excited to see how my fans will react when it’s time to reveal the line-up.”

Lil Dicky will embark on his headline ‘Professional Rapper Tour’ (see full dates below) on May 27in Detroit, and will make stops to perform at Bumbershoot, Summer Set Music Festival, andBunbury Music Festival this year. Dicky also made a recent appearance on ESPN’s Highly Questionable talk show. Tickets for the tour are available now at www.lildicky.com.
