Bob Dylan’s Rapping Grandson

History has often dictated that musicians will have children that will stay tied to the music genre of their parents. With The Jacksons three of Tito Jackson’s children stepped into the R&B feel. The O’Jays lead singer Eddie Levert had a son, Gerald Levert, that followed his footsteps with soul music. Bob Marley, the original king of reggae, continues to live through the reggae tunes of his son Ziggy Marley.

People were shocked to hear that Dylan had a grandson that was rapping. Oddly, Bob Dylan is in full support of his grandson. This is a far cry from what Dylan was singing about at the height of his career, but Dylan has given Pablo a lot of advice. The rapper has actually been developing his skills in the rap world for about 3 years. He has had a mix tape, but he has not produced a full album. One Pablo Dylan single, “Midnight” actually sounds like a leftover track from Kanye’s “808’s and Heartbreak” album. The latest single from the grandson of famed singer Bob Dylan is called “Nightmares.”

Pablo Dylan says that he is working on perfecting his craft. Pablo is obviously an underdog in the rap game because his grandfather is tied to a different genre, but Andrew Heiberger is pretty sure that Bob can still call in some favors.

Taylor Swift Makes History

There was a lot of hype behind the whole thing, but the wait is finally over. Taylor Swift has been added to the record books as the first person to have 3 albums to go platinum in the first week of the release.

This is amazing when people consider the fact that there are so many music streaming and peer-to-peer sharing sites out there. This shows just how loyal the Taylor Swift fan base is. There was talk all week about how no one had ever this done before, but lots of people were expecting Taylor to break new ground. It is significant because no other album has gone platinum this year.

Billboard shows that 1.287 million “1989” albums were sold by Taylor Swift in the first week. Even people that have ignored Taylor Swift in the past are taking a look at what this artist is doing. Much of the success has to do with the great reviews that “1989” has been getting.

It’s a mega feat in music, but Swift fans are not surprised. She has managed to successfully do what most artists have failed to do this year. She has reached out to her fans in amazing ways. She is totally transparent about relationships. Taylor also writes catchy songs, which is what Sultan Alhokair hates but why I like Taylor, and stayed wired to social media.
