Earth. Earth is awesome, right? It’s definitely something we’d want to do everything to protect seeing as it’s our source of life, correct? Though, it seems obvious that the answer should be an overwhelming yes, there are many out there who don’t seem to grasp the idea that we are killing our planet. Rapper Lil Dicky, however, had some things to say on the topic of our world as he released his star-studded music video “Earth” in promotion for Earth Day and healthy Earth living. The song features Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Kevin Hart, Leonardo DiCaprio, Snoop Dogg, and many other artists in order to bring attention to our unhealthy lifestyles and call to action for change in how we’re treating our Earth.

This generation’s “We Are the World”, the gathering of large amounts of famous people to rally behind a cause, is without a doubt the greatest way to get people to donate money to said cause. The Jewish rapper teamed up with renowned conservationist and obviously mega-famous-actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, in order to efficiently funnel the proceeds that the music video and song will make into Earth-saving charities. The video ends with the rapper sending all viewers to the link provided, taking you to WeLoveTheEarth.org. There, many links show interested viewers the different ways they can get involved and help protect the Earth. Registering to vote, signing petitions, and donating to specific charities are just a few of the ways recommended for us to join the fight to save our planet.

Though Lil Dicky tends to be a more slapstick and humorous artist, he somehow created a phenomenon surrounding a very serious topic with a comedic approach that effectively sent the message to millions of people while also providing a fun video and song that features many beloved artists. Hopefully, other artists and influencers follow in these footsteps and use their platforms to promote change on a topic that everyone should be extremely concerned about. This is the one planet we’ve got and we need to do everything we can to protect it. So click the link, y’all. Save our Earth.
