From the moment you press play on LTWRX, the debut EP from Houston rapper Dylo, it becomes easy to see the influence that the late, great J Dilla has had on this young MC. Even Dylo reportedy pronounced like "Dilla", though it clearly also derives from the 18-yer-old rapper's actual name, Dylan Lightfoot. To top it all off, Dylo is currently hard at work on his debut full-length, Leftover Donuts. Don't let any of this lend to ida of ripping off or disrespect, however. Lightfoot wears his fandom of a legend on his sleeve and certainly does a tremendous job of letting his own flavor show through in his music. Check out a rad little promo clip for the upcoming record above, which includes a sneak peek at the track "Jazz on Acid", and check out the entire LTWRX EP below. The name of the game is always lightworks.
