So, Bob Dylan's Grandson is a Rapper?

Posted By on Fri, Jul 22, 2011 at 5:00 PM

I sort of feel bad for this kid...after all, he has the right to do whatever he wants with his life, he's likely to have had a rather artistic childhood, especially since his father is a music video director, and probably these days every kid thinks he's a rapper. However, this particular song is not good. Not good at all.

“I mean, really, my grandfather, I consider him the Jay-Z of his time, and he definitely has a legacy that a lot of people look up to," Pablo Dylan told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview. "He feels strongly about my music and I love him to death.”

Pablo is the son of the famous folk singer’s son, Jesse, famous for having directed music videos for Tom Petty and Lenny Kravitz, and for having directed the Will.I.Am music video for "Yes We Can," inspired by President Barack Obama's historic run in 2008.

“We just put out the mixtape 10 Minutes; we got like 50,000 views on that, and I just got back in the studio to work on things and perfect everything.” Pablo said.

“My single with Little Chuckee and Darnell Robinson is dropping soon," an excited Pablo said about his song with Young Money’s Lil’ Chuckee. “Me and Darnell did a song on my mixtape, he hooked me up with all the people and they sent the song back with a hook and few verses.”
