Lil Dicky went to Cheltenham Township High School, where he said he was not a standout. Apparently, he was actually very nerdy, got good grades and was focused on being the class clown. He always had dreams of being a rapper but thought it was a far-fetched dream for a young, wealthy Jewish kid.

He started rapping when he was in fifth grade, opting to rap a history report on Alexander Pushkin instead of just standing up and presenting it.

After high school, he attended and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Richmond in 2010. After graduation, he moved to San Francisco and got a job at an advertising agency. After creating a rap video from his monthly progress report, he was transferred to the company’s creative department.

Personal life

While Lil Dicky calls himself a “hopeless romantic,” he is not currently dating anyone. He said he made out with a few girls when filming his music videos but those never became anything more.

However, though Lil Dicky isn’t currently in a relationship, he’s definitely staying active in the dating world. He claims to have gone on more than 85 dates thanks to dating apps. He’s made it very clear that he’s looking for a woman with a thin body type who is fun and able to deal with his sometimes “selfish” behavior.

Favorite Quotes from Lil Dicky

Tips for success from Lil Dicky

Even if a dream sounds crazy, just go after it. Something that sounds impossible is actually within reach if you pour your heart and soul into it.

Only put your name on something you truly believe in. As an artist, plenty of people want me to rep their brands. However, I only show public support for brands that I personally believe in. You don’t want your name attached to a company that doesn’t align with your values.

Save your money. Everyone is always talking about how you should buy things once you’re successful but saving your money and building for the future is a true key to success. Take pride in the amount of money you’ve saved!

Humor can make or break you. If you do it well, humor can ease a tough situation or soften the blow of tough news. It can show who you are as a person. However, if you tell a joke that’s out of line, it can ruin your reputation for years. Choose wisely.
