Probably the same as #1
Just saw a silent movie made in 1927 by a black movie company for a black audience. One character was a high-toned composer/pianist. Another character, a con artist, referred to the pianist as "dicty" in a disparaging way. So the word's been around for a while. "Leave that dicty man and come with me. With your beauty and my brains, we'll be rich."
