When Lil Dicky claimed he had recruited a slew of big-name artists for his new song, he wasn’t kidding. On Friday (April 19), the Philadelphia-born rapper shared the music video for his environment-inspired new track, “Earth.”
The seven-minute music video begins with footage of a city with smog from cars clogging the air, giving the scenery an orangey hue. The clip shifts to a group of kids hanging out and causing mayhem in their path. As they joke around, they knock over a trash can, allowing the content to litter the floor. As they go to leave, Lil Dicky passes by and tells them to clean up the trash.
After changing some choice words, the kids take their leave, but one decides to stay behind and pick up the trash. While picking up the garbage, the kid finds a book laying there. He picks it up and takes a look inside. When he does, it transports the viewer into an animated world where all the cartoon animals (or plants) in the jungle are voiced by the musicians the rapper enlisted.
The song features Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Zac Brown, Brendon Urie, Hailee Steinfeld, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Hart, Adam Levine, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Sia, Miley Cyrus, Lil Jon, Rita Ora, Miguel, Katy Perry, Lil Yachty, Ed Sheeran, Meghan Trainor, Joel Embiid, Tory Lanez, John Legend, Bad Bunny, Psy, Kris Wu, Backstreet Boys, and Leonardo DiCaprio.
The video concludes with Lil Dicky encouraging the viewer to “look into whatever the f*** Leonardo DiCaprio is always pushing” because if anyone knows about climate change, it would be him.

In conjunction with the song’s release, the Lil Dicky launched a website to give fans more information about climate change and the different ways they can do their part to help. The profits generated from “Earth” streams and views will be donated to select groups of nonprofits that tackle issues like climate change, the energy crisis, and sustainable farming.
