When the population of “aspiring rappers” has surpassed guidos on the Jersey shore, it makes it difficult to identify true talent.  I was introduced to Dillon Cooper, a 19 year old MC and Guitarist born and raised in Brookyn, NY.  He just recently relocated to Boston where he’s attending the well respected Berklee University, which looks to be the right move for the young kid.  This video above was shot by the one and only Jon Kilmer, and at first glace this kid showed me enough confidence and charisma in his delivery to continue watching with an eager eye.  His lyrics are on point, his sound is well rounded, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love an Ali sample to kickstart the track?

Dillon’s mission is to speak from his soul and stay true to his self and his crew, R.A.D; Ridiculous and Driven. Seen in the video are RAD JaY THE GREAT who is actually the producer of the song and T-RAD, Dillon’s older brother.  Sound off in the newly refined comments section!
