Pablo Dylan, the 15-year-old grandson of music legend Bob Dylan, is making a name for himself in rap.

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, Pablo Dylan released his “10 Minutes” mixtape, available for download on his site.

“We got like 50,000 views on that, and I just got back in the studio to work on things and perfect everything,” Pablo said in an interview with AllHipHop.

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 continued in the AllHipHip interview. "[He] has a legacy that a lot of people look up to."

While his name carries the weight that got his work out there, Pablo is hoping to gain traction based on his own efforts.

"Of course we do two different things, and I don't want people to see me for what he has done," Pablo told AllHipHop. "But, what I have done, I mean from a musical and personal standpoint, is definitely influenced by him."
