Brain Ft. Lil Dicky & The Game – How Can U Sleep
Lil Dicky and The Game trade murderous bars on “How Can U Sleep.”
After dropping his hilarious and undeniably dope debut album Professional Rapper, many fans were left wondering what’s next for Lil Dicky, aka The Independent Variable.
Lil Dicky surprises fans with I’m Brain, the first release under his alter ego, Brain, which features an appearance from The Game on the EP closer, “How Can U Sleep.”
Rhyming about everything from Billy Madison to haters, Dicky also raps about race. “All of my lawyers are black,” he raps. “Shit is ironic as hell / I guess that’s what happens when Jews started rapping / Used to have turtles, no wonder I’m snappin’.”
The Game shouts out Gucci Mane and Tupac Shakur, and he also doesn’t shy away from controversial topics, dissing the current president and hip-hop newcomers. “I don’t give a shit, big or tall, short or small,” he raps. “I’ll cut your dick off and sit it on Trump’s wall / Then spray paint ‘Fuck the President’ / It’s evident, hip-hop dead, new ni**as irrelevant / Different colored braids, you ni**as stuck in a maze.”
Bragging about his alter ego’s latest release, Dicky — who hasn’t dropped an album since 2015’s Professional Rapper — took to Twitter with praise. “Brain a top 3 new wave rapper,” he tweeted. “I’m not even kidding.”

Overall, an excellent collaboration from an unexpected pair.
But I don’t want it next
Someone tell Complex it ain’t complex
And what you lookin’ at is now like a Timex
I am checked the on now off the clock like compound
I’m really adamant, you’re really adequate
I’m really passionate, I’m Billy Madison
I’m the motherfucking graduate
