Making the Band 2 group member Dylan John is “a twice-convicted felon.”
Dylan John was one of the six people selected for the final hip-hop group created during Making the Band 2, despite the legal troubles briefly mentioned on the show. Those turned out to be a conviction for felony assault of a teenager that he committed while on probation for another felony, The Smoking Gun reveals. He received five years probation, not jail time, for the latest offense, apparently in part because of the letter sent to the D.A. by P Diddy (reproduced on the site), who wrote of the show, “It would be extremely unfortunate for him to miss out on an opportunity of a lifetime, particularly when he’s put in the work that’s enabled him to make it thus far.”
