Nickelodeon airs wholesome interview with 12-year-old rapper Young Dylan and Deebo Samuel
Nickelodeon pulled in football fans on Sunday by airing the San Francisco 49ers win over the Dallas Cowboys. After the game an interview with Young Dylan, a 12-year-old rapper from Annapolis, Maryland, and former South Carolina star Deebo Samuel was as family friendly as you’d expect.
“Deebo Samuel, you had a crazy game, you was doing it all, 100 total yards and a touchdown,” Young Dylan said. “How does it feel being mentioned as a running back and a receiver.”
Samuel smiled, and played along with the atypical interview.
“It’s just amazing, man,” Samuel said. “I don’t second question anything Kyle (Shanahan) asks me to do. I trust him just as much as he trusts me with the ball in my hands, and I just go out here and give it my all.”
As energetic as ever, Young Dylan took the next question in stride, and posed it this way: “What was going on through your head when you knew you guys won?”
“Actually I thought I got the first down, but Kyle put the kicker out there to pin them back deep,” Samuel said. “We’ve got a lot of faith in our defense and they went out and got the job done.”
Here’s the full interview:
