PreHistorE-Days gave Mines students one last place to party on Saturday evening at the annual concert. This year, the headliner was none other than the Professional Rapper himself, Lil Dicky (a.k.a. The Independent Variable).
Huey Mack, a rapper known for “Favorite Song” and “Take it All Back,” opened the concert. His set list included his hits, Disney’s “Cruella de Vil”, “You Again”, R. Kelly’s “Ignition”, snacks, and jokes about Colorado’s relationship with weed.
Lil Dicky (a.k.a. Stem Cells) began by hinting at a striptease, performing “Professional Rapper” and “Work (Paid for That?)”, and throwing water on the first few rows. He also sang the national anthem and impressed the audience with his American Idol song of choice, R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly”. Lil Dicky (a.k.a. The Original Pancake) also performed popular songs “Too High,” “Sports,” “White Crime,” the first five minutes of “Pillow Talking,” and “$ave Dat Money.” He also took things to an emotional level with his performance of “Molly”.
About halfway through his time onstage he threw snacks into the crowd, including but not limited to: Doritos, a veggie plate, gummy bears, and ranch dressing.
During his performance of “Lemme Freak,” which launched him to YouTube and rap fame, Lil Dicky (a.k.a. Young Dick) stripped to his underwear and brought a female student from the crowd onstage, consequently giving her a lap dance. He presented her with flowers after the song ended.
Lil Dicky (a.k.a. Firm Handshake) ended the concert with the first song he posted to YouTube, “Ex-Boyfriend.” Lil Dicky (a.k.a. Young Professional), his stage presence, humor, and talents made PreHistorE-Days’ Saturday show a concert for the ages.
