Lil Dicky – Professional Rapper (Feat. Snoop Dogg)
In celebration of the release of his debut LP, Professional Rapper, comedian Lil Dicky premieres the music video for the album’s title track on the same day, Friday, July 31.
The music video, directed by Al Levine and Doug Olsen, features the sarcastic Philly rapper getting interviewed by OG rapper, Snoop Dogg, for the position of “Professional Rapper.” His sole objective is to state his case as to why he deserves a chance.
“Coming out of corporate America, every move I made involved a job interview,” Lil Dicky tells Billboard. “So if my next job is being a rapper, I thought it would be super cool to start the album out with a job interview. And who better to be interviewing me for the position than the legendary Snoop Dogg.”
Professional Rapper comes two years after the debut of his mixtape, So Hard. The rapper launched a Kickstarter soon after to fund “phase two of my rap career.” Lil Dicky raised more than $113,000 in one month, exceeding his goal of $70,000.

The Game Takes Drake To Compton For The ‘100’ Video
The Game is as well-versed in rap beef as any other rapper in the, um, game, so of course he drops his video for “100” featuring Drake while the latter’s name is hot. Directed by Theo Skudra, the visual is a ton of performance shots of Drizzy and Chuck intercut with tons of B-roll of the Compton scenery and a ton of city’s residents. Game’s red Blue Jays jersey is dope, and the name on the back being Drake’s is a touch only the name-drop king could pull off.
Game’s Documentary 2 has no official release date, but it was as August 28th recently on Amazon, only to be deleted eventually. While you wait on the album, “100” can be purchased on iTunes here.

Pioneer DJ teases “new performance horizons” for Rekordbox

The teaser video below throws up a few interesting details including what look like proper track decks and an effects rack, suggesting it might be about to go up against Traktor and Serato.

Dan Bilzerian Is Spending Over $650,000 To Party With 200 Friends At Electric Zoo Over Labor Day Weekend
When you’re Instagram playboy Dan Bilzarian, you don’t just spend your Labor Day weekend roasting hot dogs at a casual cookout. You ball out. Hard.
Yesterday afternoon a tipster sent BroBible a few Snapchat screengrabs of a receipt of purchase by Dan Bilzerian for a VIP deck at Electric Zoo on Randall’s Island in New York City. The amount of money Bilzerian is spending to partying with 200 personal guests over Labor Day weekend is staggering — All together, he’s dropping over $650,000 for the package, according to our tipster.
Apparently the Instagram playboy is planning on partying his face off during the EDM festival, spending $350,000 on top shelf alcohol, including 60 magnums of Ace Of Spades champagne, 45 handles Patron Grand Platinum, and 55 handles of Ciroc. Apparently he receives a “VIP Deck” for his 200-person entourage, which I assume is right next to the stage.
The best part of the entire VIP package is easily the “personal firework & pyro controller” for $150,000, which I assume gives Dan control over the Electric Zoo’s fireworks display. It’s probably in his best interest to make sure his expensive pyrotechnics hobby is done in a controlled, legal way.
Here’s the itemized receipt that was sent to BroBible, along with proof of purchase, with blanked out identifying details. Note that those were blanked out before they were passed our way.
