The season three finale of Lil Dicky’s hit FX show Dave was one for the books. Along with actress Rachel McAdams and two-time Oscar-winner Brad Pitt, Drake appeared on the star-studded season finale, joining the show’s tradition of reintroducing household names.
Other big stars throughout the course of season three included Usher, Killer Mike, Rick Ross, Don Cheadle, Jack Harlow, and more. According to Lil Dicky, legal name Dave Burd, the cameos all come down to Burd’s persuasive letter-writing to potential guests.
“Drake is like the top of the mountain top musically and as a rapper,” Burd told THR. “I had met Drake and he pulled me aside and told me the show is one of the more important shows of our generation and I knew he was a fan.”
He continued, “With all of them, my writers’ room was like, “This is kind of crazy that you’re putting all your eggs in these baskets because what if they say no?” These people don’t even do TV. Drake hasn’t done TV since ‘Degrassi.’ Honestly, I think the show can have a tendency to get overlooked. Once you sit down and watch, it’s kind of objectively a great show. These are like the biggest stars of our time validating our show.”
Although Drake has given up acting on scripted television shows for executive producing (Euphoria, Top Boy, Saint X), the Her Loss rapper last appeared in films Ice Age: Continental Drift and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. This summer, he’ll embark on the It’s All A Blur Tour with 21 Savage.
