Kickstarter campaigns are not only helping movies get off the ground, as rapper Lil Dicky can attest.

The internet rapper recently reached his Kickstarter campaign goal of $70,000, but instead of it going towards the production of a film, the money will instead go towards his music production, video and touring costs.

Lil Dicky has released a variety of mix tapes online — including the single “So Hard” — in the last several months and this Kickstarter money will now help in getting him to the next level.

He also recently signed with creative music agency Jingle Punks’ management arm Pop Up, which also recently inked rapper Tyga.
