“Seemingly every hip-hop blog from The Masked Gorilla to SoulCulture UK has been asking the same question: “Who is Dillon Cooper?” We decided to find out the answer for ourselves. Earlier this week, [we] teamed up once again with Decriminals and linked up with Dillon for an exclusive interview. We spent four hours shooting some video, taking some photos, and most importantly just getting to know each other and chillin’ on an oddly gorgeous March afternoon,” explains Boston-based hip hop blog, The Fresh Heir.
Since the 19-year-old emcee’s “Shadows” video – which was his first ever video, may I add – hit the net and was subsequently spread across the Twittersphere by Jadakiss, Dillon Cooper has experienced unprecedented popularity, having racked up over 20,000 views on YouTube and is nearing 1,000 Facebook fans in little over a three week period.
Sitting down with Tim Larew of The Fresh Heir, Dillon lifted the lid on his rapid success, speaking on his new-found online fame, seeing his video tweeted by Jadakiss and what future material we can expect from the teenage phenom. All that plus some hot freestyles in the video below.
