On the 14th stop of his 25 city nationwide tour, Logic and his Visionary Music Group rolled into the Windy City for another sold out show at Reggie's Rock Club late last week. Hosting the evening was B96's very own Julian On The Radio who was able to catch up with Logic right before jumping on stage and give us this fun, yet informative interview for GWHH. Touching on interesting topics such as his alter-ego, "Young Sinatra", and his "Rattpack" and "Bobby Soxer" members, Logic also talked about some of his inspirations for his music as well as the meaning and substance behind his records. And if your a fan of Logic and listen to his music, than you'll know that what he says in this interview is right on point. But after some of the typical cliche questions, as expected for you new Logic fans, Julian and Logic chop it up about Logic's "Mac Miller" reference, and whereabouts for the famous Gumby suit. They also go in about Logic's job history and list of artist he wants to work with in the future. Just under 8 minutes of some "real" answers from Maryland's fast up and comer.
Now all these Q&A's are great, but I want you (the viewer) to see pass just that and take notice of the person that makes Logic Logic. Look at the way he carries himself and how humble he is in his answers. Notice how much he's smiling and how much fun he's having during this interview. Trust me, it's not a coincidence that he just so happens to have some of the most loyal fans in the industry. And all those characters I quickly mentioned are easily reflected and heard in his music. So if your not on the Logic fan bus just yet, I suggest you wise up and get on, because it's getting crowded fast. And you can bet your ass I'm riding shotgun. P.S. Dope shirt Logic!
Four hundred thousand views on a video here...two hundred thousand on another one over there...and one hundred thousand plus downloads on a mixtape that's only several months fresh. The "Numbers" don't lie son. My man Logic is really starting to make some noise, and the bond between artist and fan is stronger than ever. Logic is as loyal to his fans as his fans are to him. So it was no surprise seeing Reggie's sell out a few weeks ago when Logic took to the stage to perform while on tour in Chicago. I witnessed a bitter Midwest open its arms and embrace the pack. Fans literally showed up hours in advanced, shrugging off piercing cold winds all for the chance to meet the young MC out of MD. Now that's love.
You know my dude had to show it back though. So in return Logic previewed and performed a good amount of the material off his future spring release, which I will say is sounding amazing. Lucky for everyone GWHH's own Stan Perry was able to catch footage of Logic performing two jams off the upcoming mixtape. One being a verse of an unfinished cut and the other being "Numbers," which Young Sinatra filmed a video for while staying in Chicago. In the video up above you'll see that Logic also took some time after his set to lounge on the couch with yours truly, where we spoke about the shoot as well as the overall theme to the follow up project.
I believe the time and place for my homie's February 10th performance of 2012 couldn't have been more fitting. I was able to see friends excel and succeed at what they love doing the most while doing it. The best part about it though is knowing that their journey is only beginning. I personally can't wait for the day in which the RattPack takes over the world. Believe that too, because it's comin'. Yup!
Word to my man Terrence Jones on the awesome editing. Homie brought the skills.
On the weekend of February 10th, Logic (rapper out of Maryland) invaded Chicago for a live performance @ Reggie's as part of his tour with OCD. Logic's time in the city was real groove as he and the pack spent their days shooting a music video for a single off his upcoming spring tape release. You know...that swag sh*t y'all ain't ready for.
Peep the first interview the Gowhere Hip Hop team and I popped off with Logic while he came through and kicked it with us @ headquarters. Throughout the piece you'll catch Logic speak out about the new mixtape, the RattPack, his stay in Chicago and the music video he shot here, plus more. Tune in and enjoy as the homie and I share some good times and good laughs. Shouts to the Jugrnaut fam for keeping a homie fresh #RattPack boi!
