Pablo Dylan is a Wannabe Rapper: So What?
I like Internet snark as much as the next person, but sometimes there's just too much hate in the world. Take the case of Pablo Dylan, Bob's 15-year-old grandson who just wants to rap. If you listen to "I'm On One" after the jump, you'll hear that it's not any different from any boy band staple, and it's not heinous or Rebecca Black-ish in any way either.
The fact that he's the son of Bob's oldest son Jesse (a music video director who has worked with the likes of Lenny Kravitz, Tom Petty, and Will.I.Am for the Barack Obama "Yes We Can" video) shouldn't make a difference. So what if he got his break because his grandfather is the poet laureate of folk music? There are worst things in the world. Like, say, every Real Housewives song in existence. Pablo Dylan released his 10 Minutes mixtape, available for download on his site.
In his single, "Top of the World," Pablo raps: "I'm a grandson of a man nothin' less than legendary."
"I consider him the Jay-Z of his time," he said in the AllHipHop interview. "(He) has a legacy that a lot of people look up to."
