Bob Dylan’s Rapping Progeny

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

People freaked out when Dylan went electric. Imagine how they’ll feel when they learn that his grandson has gone hip hop!

Meet Pablo Dylan, who has just released a mixtape of rhymes called “10 Minutes.”

While most people wouldn’t associate rap with the rock legend from the 60s, his kin has a different take on the matter. “I mean, really, my grandfather, I consider him the Jay-Z of his time,” Pablo told AllHipHop.

While Pablo may indeed be talented, if I am going to get music from a Dylan other than Bob, I prefer Jakob. (Am I the only one who misses the Wallflowers?)

Here is a sample of the youngest Dylan’s music.
