Lil Windex (real name – Dylan Godfrey) is a Canadian rapper based out of British Columbia who has more than 179k subscribers on YouTube.
He was born on September 22, 1992, in Mission, British Columbia, Canada – a district municipality in the Lower Mainland of the province.
Godfrey has 2 brothers.
Dylan began his career as a YouTuber uploading videos on July 3, 2013, under the name DTG. Currently, he has over 166,000 subscribers, but all of his content is deleted.
His content was mainly comedic skits, occasionally of other local artists. In addition, he used to upload music videos for his early demos.
On June 28, 2017, Godfrey began posting videos on a new YouTube channel, under the name – ”Lil Windex.” In the present moment, the channel has over 179,000 subscribers and more than 39 million views.
On July 9, 2017, he uploaded a video, named – “Cleanin Up.” His music video for the song earned over 1 million views on YouTube in less than a month. Currently, it has over 11 million views.
BDice directed the music video for the song. “Cleanin Up” is an interpolation of the Korn 1998 single ”Freak on a Leash” remixed by renowned producer C-Lance.
On March 7, 2018, he released a video called – ”Bitcoin Ca$h.” The song criticized the bitcoin core and praised bitcoin cash.
Note – Bitcoin Cash is a cryptocurrency that is a fork of Bitcoin created in 2017.
Bryan Kelly, a stock analyst, explained:
”Bitcoin cash is doing a “hard fork” or “effectively a software upgrade.”
”When you do a software upgrade, everybody usually agrees. But in this particular case, everybody is not agreeing.”
During an interview, Lil said about bitcoin cash:
“I’m vested in BCH, I’ve made some money.”
Godfrey went on to say:
”But being that it’s way newer than bitcoin and hasn’t seen the same gains, I haven’t made a billion or anything.”
The song starts as follows:
“B####, I got that Bitcoin cash (Bitcoin cash)
Yeah, you could say I got them big boy racks (them big boy racks)
They, say Windex how you live like that (how you live that that)
How, you make the foreigners whip like that (how they whip like that)
Cause, b#### I said I got that Bitcoin cash.”
On March 20, 2018, he released another single, titled – “San Pellegrino.” The video was directed by BDice. It features his long-time friend Merkules (one of Canada’s rising hip hop stars) on the beat produced by Deadkeys.
The music video for the song includes a few sponsors from medical cannabis suppliers in British Columbia, including:
- High Society Canada;
- Ridge Meadows Cannahealth;
- Phant Extracts.
Lil Windex is married, but the name of his wife was not released to the public.

When asked if he recommends any good cleaning products for glass, he responded:
”I can only recommend one. It’s the best one I know: Lil Windex.”
