By now you’ve probably heard of Lil Dicky. His debut album Professional Rapper blew up when it was released late this summer, signaling that the buzz generated from his earlier releases wasn’t just a joke. Where Dicky has always excelled has been his videos,and on the visual for the Fetty Wap and Rich Homie Quan-assisted “$ave Dat Money” is no different. It doesn’t hurt that “$ave Dat Money” is one of the best songs on the album, but the design for the video is what really makes it stand out. The premise is simple: Dicky sets out to make the most extravagant music video possible while spending no money. The video includes scenes of LD and crew driving around Beverly Hills trying to find someone willing to let them use their house, conversations with a Lamborghini dealer, hanging out at a yacht marina waiting for someone to come by, and posting up outside the club trying to get into the VIP.
The most brilliant move, however, is how Lil Dicky involves T-Pain. T-Pain was shooting a video at the same time and was convinced to let Dicky post up off to the side and frame the shot to make it look like T-Pain’s video crowd was for him. That’s going a long way to pull in a favor to save that money. You can check out the video for “$ave Dat Money” below and be on the lookout for the what’s sure to be fascinating mini-documentary of the making of the video in the near future.
