“Who is Dillon Cooper?” It’s a question that’s been floating around the internet for the past several weeks, sparked by Jadakiss tweeting the link to the 19-year-old Brooklyn-born rapper’s debut music video just days after its release. The young MC’s near-meteoric rise to relevance led to YouTube and Google searches everywhere, but none have yielded anything more than “Shadows”… until now, that is.
Like everyone else, we wanted to know who Dillon Cooper was. We wanted the answer to that question that’s been making headlines on hip-hop blogs across the nation, so we went out and got it. A week ago today, The Fresh Heir and Decriminals teamed up for an exclusive video interview with the man of the moment. As described in detail in Part One of the interview, we spent the entire afternoon with Dillon, on what happened to be the most beautiful March day Boston has ever seen, kickin’ it down by the Charles River and later on the Green Street Vault, chopping it up about hip-hop and everything beyond.
From the interview, and really from the whole day in general, I learned that not only is Dillon Cooper an extremely talented rapper with a diverse musical background, but he’s also a great kid with a positive outlook and an infectious personality that’s going to lead him to success no matter what becomes of his career in hip-hop.
The Fresh Heir is proud to present the first-ever video interview with Dillon Cooper. I have a feeling it won’t be the last. Hit the links below, and stay tuned for much more.
