For all those who haven't heard the news yet. Visionary Music Group (home to Logic) just announced that our homie QuESt will be joining the team as their latest pick up. Congratulations to both sides. Lets all wish QuESt the best of luck and continued prosperity throughout this new journey with Visionary. Good luck friend.
"Visionary Music Group is excited to announce the signing of Miami based hip hop artist, QuESt. Fresh off a sold out national tour supporting fellow Visionary Music Group and Def Jam artist Logic. Today we're excited to release a brand new record and visual entitled "NEATO Season." QuESt decides to tackle the classic Childish Gambino "Unnecessary" track.
"NEATO Season" is the first song/visual QuESt is releasing as a Visionary Music Group artist. This record will be on QuESt's upcoming project set to release later this year. We're not going to release the mp3 until his full project is released."
Logic is one of the most talented artists in the game right now, and the video above will show you why you should check him out at a venue near you. The House of Blues show in Chicago was a sold out, high energy orchastration, where Logic performed hits from his whole catalog along with a heavy emphasis on his new project "Welcome To Forever". Throughout the show he spoke of peace, love, and positivity — a message I appreciate his help in spreading, in combination with incredible lyrical ability, break-fast delivery, and a fiery authenticity that what he says, he means.
Just coming off his own tour, Logic also jumps on board 'The Cud Life Tour' where he'll open up alongside Tyler The Creator for the moon man Kid Cudi. All three artists have amazing live shows where they get the crowd extra hype, which is why I believe this is going to be one of the best tours this year. In conclusion I'll let the video speak for itself, with one final statement: Gowhere Hip Hop <3's Logic!
Previously: Kid Cudi "Cudi Zone" x "Memories" x "Day 'N' Nite" Live at SXSW 2013
Here's a tour I'ma get tickets for. Cudi, Big Sean, Tyler The Creator, and Logic. *nods head*
I'm personally a big fan of Cud, Tyler, and Logic who's on the come-up. Yes, I left out Tyler. Don't get me wrong, I love the dude's personality and brand; I just never got into his music the same way. After missing out on his last show while we were in SXSW, and also after #TeamGowhere's glowing review, I definitely want to see a live performance from Odd Future's frontman and this tour would be the perfect setting.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow. And I'll update this post if the dates/locations become revealed.
UPDATE: Now "tomorrow", the first batch of dates and locations have been revealed, with Cudi adding more to be announced. (Hopefully Chicago!)

Tonight the Welcome To Forever Tour arrives in Chicago! House of Blues across the nation are sold out to see the XXL Freshman and new Def Jam signee Logic put on a live show. And he's accompanied by a talented set of emcees in their own right: C Dot Castro, Skizzy Mars, and QuESt. We'll be in the house tonight to see all the acts do their thing and having seen Logic perform first-hand before, I know we're in for a dope show.

Watch our classic, throwback interview with Logic last summer below for the answer to the following question and be the first to e-mail (email@example.com) or tweet it (@gowherehiphop) to us:
What and where was Logic's last job before becoming a rapper?
I'll be looking at the timestamps to see who delivers the first correct answer and will announce the winner on Twitter. Good luck and hope to see ya at the show tonight! If all this is irrelevant to you, then don't sleep on Logic's latest below — including his Welcome To Forever mixtape!
Yesterday's MTV RapFix had a jam-packed show with guests French Montana and Fat Joe flanked by four freshman (yup, that alliteration was on purpose) — Action Bronson, Logic, Travi$ Scott, and Dizzy Wright. Those four proceeded to spit 30 seconds of quick-hitting bars to conclude the show. You could tell the "no cursing" rule messed up Action's rhymes, but he begun things pretty well. Logic was the best with his slick rhymes and the "p" alliteration I wish there was more of (that was fire). The first half of his rhymes were a written? No matter though, because he spit those raps confidently, which was what I was felt was lacking with Travi$ and Dizzy afterward. Maybe it's just their energy in general but both of them had a lifeless delivery that didn't match the energy of Logic's or of the environment and beat in general. Just a one-time critique though for me personally; not gonna let that carry over into my interpretation of their future music. What did you guys think?!
