Dylan Owen Interview & Freestyle [FNT Exclusive]

Posted by on October 17, 2012

The first time I heard Dylan Owen was just about a year ago. He had just submitted “All I Do” to our “Sheeps, Jeeps, and Beats” contest with Jon Kilmer (which he eventually won), and I was completely infatuated by his expeditious delivery and sharp wit. Who knew at that point that we were playing a role in unleashing a star. That a project as honest, introspective, and imaginative as Keep Your Friends Close was in the making. Months after that release, Dylan has become one of the most compelling and promising artists of the year, showcasing an amount of creativity and lyrical depth that few emcees can compete with—record deal or not. As I strive to bring more lyrically-focused hip-hop artists to the FNT limelight, Dylan is a perfect place to start. That said, we are proud to bring you an FNT exclusive: a freestyle and interview that highlights Dylan’s pure lyrical power, wit, charm, and heart—those qualities that make him the special musician that he is. Check the video below, and if you have managed to miss it thus far, here is his most recent EP, the phenomenal Keep Your Friends Close EP.
