Dylan Dilinjah, Dave Chappelle

Dylan Dilinjah is blaming legendary comedian Dave Chappelle for “burning” his music career to smithereens with his infamous “Making The Band 2” skit on “Chappelle’s Show.”

Watch the classic skit below. 

Dylan reflected on how Dave’s portrayal of him in the infamous skit impacted his music career on the latest episode of “We Are Flatbush.” 

The 44-year-old rapper hailing from Brooklyn admitted that for a while he had no choice but to lean into the attention he received from the skit. 

Dylan was able to ride the wave of the wildly popular skit by launching the “Top 5” radio show and a craft beer. 

He even fought to trademark the infamous quote, “Who’s the top 5 rappers? Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, and Dylan.” 

But, ultimately fast times slowed up when the industry stopped laughing with him and began laughing at him. 

Dylan Dilinjah said, “Any time I send my music to DJs, they say, ‘Oh, that’s the n— that Dave Chappelle made fun of, nah, I’m good on that.”

Not only that, but now, every promoter says, ‘Nah, we’re not booking him.’ So now I have a newborn, and the fridge is empty in 2005, and no one is calling me. Everyone is laughing,” he added. 

The former Da Band rapper became overwhelmed with emotion as he continued to vent. 

I’m legend now! But [back then] I’m fucked up for what you just did. And you’re not answering the phone.

At that time, no one picking up they phone.

Not one label; and at that time, you had to sign to a record label.

And I called all of them direct. And they said, ‘I can’t help you.’

That joke gone, boy. That joke took over. That joke burned [my career].

Watch below as Dylan Dilinjah speaks his peace.

Did Dave Chappelle’s skit make you take Dylan for a joke?
