Aside from simply just working on Dave, Lil Dicky is also the co-creator and head writer of the series. But, his favorite part of the entire process is editing. 

"Even if you have the perfect script, you’re thinking like, 'Could this scene have another joke in it that’s funny?' You could always come up with another idea. With editing, you have what you have. You are locked with your footage. There’s a liberation to not being able to get more things. It’s about problem-solving," he said, explaining how he nitpicks the edits on Dave.

'Dave' is based on Lil Dicky's real life and his personal insecurities.

Unlike many people in the spotlight, Lil Dicky is not afraid to be open about his personal insecurities. In fact, Dave is based on the rapper's own life and his own image issues. So, where did this stem from? The rapper opened up about overcoming his own issues with self confidence while partnering with Dollar Shave Club for the brand's #MenGetReal campaign.

"I was very self-conscious about so many things," he said about his younger self. "When I was born, I had surgery on my penis. So, from a very young age, body trauma and physical insecurity has been, like, top of my mind. I would avoid hanging out with girls because I was afraid my penis was too weird. Every step of the way it was the total top of my mind." 

The rapper was born with a condition known as hypospadias, which is talked about on Dave

"Only as a true adult, I’d say 25 ... was I just able to be like, 'You know what, I am who I am and let's just embrace this,'" he added. "I feel like it only made me happier. Life is so short. I worry about so much all the time, so just having that huge amount of body insecurity taken off of that list of worries is just a huge weight and it's allowed me to just live my life in a happier way."
