How Do You Create a Dubstep Bass Like This?

I'm working on creating a track similar to this but I'm unsure of how to create the dubstep bass sound. Here is an example (yes I'm aware the rapper sucks)

YouTube - Friscoe Spittin Practice Hours

I have Protools, FL 9, Nexus2, Gladiator2, & Sylenth1 if that helps..

Thanks

Actually he's on point. It's pretty basic stuff.

Run saw or square through a filter LFO or EG. That's it. Tweak to fit your sound.

It does sound like a square-waved synth. Lots of bending going on of course. And a filter eating some of the top but doing something nasty to the midrange (resonance).

Edit: above poster got it too :p
