Lil Dicky “$aves Dat Money” by Making a Music Video for $0.00
When Lil Dicky raps “Ay, we gon’ save that money (I’m so stingy),” he damn well means it. So the clear thing to do for the music video was to call in favors from Fetty Wap, Rich Homie Quan and a bunch of his famous friends and produce the whole thing for $0.
The super-low-budget video features blinged-out scenes with Fetty Wap and Rich Homie Quan, and then grainy footage of Lil Dicky walking door-to-door in Los Angeles, asking random people to let him shoot on their property for 15 minutes. He also recruited people like NBA star Kevin Durant, Tom Petty, DJ Dillon Frances and Sarah Silverman to lip-sync on the video, and cut in some shots of his cameo from T-Pain’s “Make That Shit Work” video.
The resulting video is both economical and catchy, with more than 4 million views since it went online a few days ago.
Lil Dicky’s debut studio album “Professional Rapper” features other big name collaborators like Snoop Dogg, T-Pain and Hannibal Buress.
