If I were to inform you that the 15-year-old grandson of folk music legend Bob Dylan was an aspiring musician, you’d probably expect to hear something equally folksy and warbly like good ol’ gramps. But while the kid may be following in the family footsteps, he’s by no means trying to take on the folk music scene.
Meet Pablo Dylan, a brand new addition to the rap world. According to Pablo, he and grandpa Bob aren’t too unalike. The teen told AllHipHop.com that he considers Bob Dylan to be “the Jay-Z of his time, and he definitely has a legacy that a lot of people look up to…He feels strongly about my music and I love him to death.”
Pablo’s just released a free eight-track mixtape over on his website, titled ’10 Minutes’. He cites Eminem as an inspiration, and it’s clear that he’s still in the angsty teenager phase of his life. But it certainly sounds like he’s inherited a bit of the family talent.
Check out his single ‘Top Of The World’ below. What do you think of the latest musician in the Dylan family tree?
