    Damn. That was a whole lot deeper than expected. The feels.

    Lil Dicky is one of the worst things to happen to rap in awhile.

    Have you listened to G-Eazy, Hoodie Allen, Azaelia Banks, Young Thug, Chief Keef..... They are all much worse. Lil Dicky does joke songs but he's stylistically pretty talented.

    Lol.

    Azaelia Banks maybe has a reprehensible personality but the music she makes is excellent. Young Thug is one of the current best making music. Chief Keef is one of the most influential as well since his rise to popularity in 2011. G-Eazy and Hoodie Allen are in fact terrible and do not belong in the conversation with those other three. Lil Dicky mocks black culture and openly gains from it. It's gross on top of the fact that his music sucks. Rapping fast is not something I find impressive.

    I'll admit that my dislike for Azaelia Banks is 95% based on her personality.

    Young Thug and Chief Keef are terrible. I understand that they are influential (not sure why) and that Chief Keef helped bring 'trap' into the spot light. I don't believe there is any substance to their music. Can you provide any lyrical examples where they have done something noteworthy? I'm open minded - if you can show me something unique, or relatable (because I don't think 95% or more of their fans can relate to their songs), I'd be happy to listen.

    G-Eazy and Hoodie Allen are terrible. We can agree on that.

    Lil Dicky - "makes fun of black culture and gains from it." Sure. And I guess no black rappers make fun of white culture and gain from it. Young Thug and Chief Keef are lyrically terrible but you and a lot of other people still seem to like them. Why can't you just chalk Lil Dicky's lyrics up to being terrible the same way most people chalk Chief Keefs lyrics up as terrible and appreciate his ability? I think Chief Keef is more detrimental to black culture than Lil Dicky could ever be - besides he has a lot of credible black rappers who support him.

    F.Y.I. - I'm not even a big Lil Dicky fan...

    Lyrics are not the only part of a song. You don't have to be "lyrical" to be important.

    jesus fucking christ

    a) fuck this racist asshole motherfucker "rapper"
    b) you are being deliberately obtuse if you compare chief keef and young thug and azealia to fucking g eazy or this dumb parody piece of shit
    c) anyone who cries "reverse racism" over imaginary lyrics where black rappers mock white people is probably a racist

    I would agree with that for most genres. Rap is not one of the genres because a rapper's instrument is his voice/words. Most don't even make their own music. They are only responsible for their words and sometimes production.

    Did I hit a nerve? That's fine if you don't like him. I don't even like him all that much - maybe 5-6 songs tops. And I'm not being 'obtuse' they all have their place and are better than G-Eazy and Hoodie. Azaelia Banks is the biggest racist out of all the ones I named - what makes it okay for her? That's the shit I don't like.

    His entire "schtick" depends on "haha look at me using these rap tropes to poke fun at all these people who have lived entirely different experiences than i have im gonna mock them and use them to get rich" its disgusting

    You are being obtuse. Thug is one of the most interesting lyricists working currently, and Keef has gone so far down a weirdo outsider rabbithole I'm not sure what he'll do next and I doubt you've listened to anything he's done since 2012, when he was a kid reacting to and depicting the culture and environment he was born into as a result of long standing institutionalized violence, oppression, and segregation.

    Anyone who wants to whine about black people making fun of white people is like, 95% guaranteed to be racist, no matter your very "stirring" defense of "I'm not racist."

    The only thing I've gained from making fun of white culture is the respect of this site's community. So not much.

    Wow, I've never even heard of this guy. I just saw this video, thought both it and the song were fantastic and people seem very angry.

    I love this video. His friends lines about "she texted me saying she got cold feet" hits even harder when you realize what's going on

    I like Lil' Dicky. I think he's actually pretty talented, even if he is writing joke songs 90% of the time.
