The Latest Dylan Releases A Tape

Bob Dylan’s teenage grandson is entering the music business, not as a folk troubadour or even simply going electric – but as a rapper. “He feels strongly about my music,” said Pablo Dylan (pictured), “and I love him to death.” Pablo is the son of Jesse Dylan, Bob’s eldest, and Susan Traylor. Just 15-years-old, Pablo recently released his first hip-hop mixtape, “10 Minutes,” which you can download from his website. He and his grandfather “do two different things”, Pablo told AllHipHop (via Rolling Stone), but Bob is “definitely” an influence, “from a musical and personal standpoint”. “Everyone around me influences me, and I have learned so much from him just listening to his records,” Pablo said. For Pablo, Dylan is just another part of the canon. “I consider him the Jay-Z of his time,” he said. Personally, I must add, I don’t think Jay-Z is the Bob Dylan of ours.
