Dylan Raw the CEO of Raw Affiliation Inc. has been regarded as a musical prodigy by the media since he came on to the main stage as a headlining solo act when he was just 12 years old. Now, the 23-year old rapper has set his sights on more than just making the music. In March of 2021, after releasing his 7-song project titled KILLTHEKING, Dylan signed the second largest record deal in the history of Maine musicians. Second to only the rapper known as Poverty, who in 2002 signed with industry tycoon Ted Field (Founder of Interscope records) to a massive multi-album contract totaling over 7 figures.

As a performer and collaborator, Raw’s resume in the music industry speaks for itself. From being a touring opener for legendary rappers like Papoose and DJ Unk at just 14 years of age, to ghostwriting and producing with some of the biggest producers and artists on the planet, then growing up and maintaining a stronghold in massive markets like Los Angeles, Houston, Las Vegas, and Atlanta. Raw has amassed an enormous following on social media, garnering millions of online streams to songs he’s written, recorded, and produced which he believes is crucial to ensure massive success.

Not only does Dylan Raw have a breath of experience as a performer, opening for legendary acts like DaBaby, MadeinTYO, DAS EFX, Riff Raff and many more – but he’s also got songs “on wax” (meaning recorded) with rappers like The Game, Fabo from D4L, and his New England counterpart Millyz. Dylan recently posted a video clip to his Instagram page @DylanRawMusic of Millyz saying “Yo it’s your boy blanco… and this is Dylan Raw man, and he runs Portland Maine.” Millyz goes on to shout out the rapper’s company Raw Affiliation towards the end of the video, which was originally posted in 2017. It does raise an interesting point however. Has Maine ever seen a rapper like Dylan Raw?

History shows that no, Maine has never had a recording artist that has left quite the footprint on the local scene, (as well as the music industry as a whole) the way Dylan Raw has. The young entrepreneur has proven that he cares a great deal about the betterment of his community, as Raw Affiliation Inc. sponsors and supports Youth Sports programs all throughout the U.S. year after year. “I care a lot about Portland, Maine…and I want our city to have a respectable name and a place in rap. I want to do what Drake did for Toronto in my own city,” said Raw.

Fans watch closely in anticipation for Raw’s upcoming studio album, speculating and debating on social media things like: what the album will be titled, and when it will be released on all streaming platforms. For now, we enjoy Raw Affiliation’s latest music video release “Honeymoon” and keep our fingers crossed that Dylan Raw will deliver another classic for all of us listeners to enjoy on June 1st, what the company refers to as “National R.A. Day.” This coming June 1st would mark the 8th consecutive year the rapper dropped a major song, project, or concert on that day.

As we look forward to seeing this young businessman and musical savant grow and mature over the next few years, we will be watching not only the rappers social media pages intently for updates, but also subscribing to the company’s website, rawaffiliation.com as well (the online destination to access the unreleased content produced by Raw Affiliation.)
