"Lil Dicky's debut album came out today (Snoop, Hannibal Buress on it)"
Mixed feelings about him...The world doesn't need another 'frat rap' white guy
I think its at the very least kind of interesting/entertaining that he owns being a "Comedy Rapper" yet wants to be respected as an actual rapper...and IMO at least, raps technically better than Mac Miller, G-Eazy, Asher Roth, etc.
And I can't lie, I love "Lemme Freak", mustve listened to it/watched it at least 10 times

I think when it's ALL making fun of rap culture it's just not fun to me. When there's some actual songwriting in other songs it's a little eaiser for me to rock with.
There's rappers that do parody type stuff, like Homeboy Sandman for example....but he always does it in a way that says "this thing I'm making fun of.....but BUT I GOT SOMETHING BETTER THAN THAT THO" and with Dicky in the few songs I've heard I haven't heard the other side.
I haven't listened to Dicky's album yet, but I have a friend who's a diehard....so I will eventually. Hopefully there's other ideas on the album besides The Earth Song and the I switched bodies with Chris Brown joints.
Also, Asher Roth has an album dropping in a week (at least he did before the country went to shit) and I'm looking forward to it. I haven't heard anything from Dicky that fucking with what I heard on Pabst & Jazz....that's just me tho.
