Logic has had a lot of great features on some well-known music sites. Last month, HipHopDX talked to Logic about “how he went from being an opening act fighting for respect to packing venues for headliners.” It is a must read if you’re a fan.
It’s been said that “where there is no struggle there is no strength,” and if that’s the case then this Maryland rapper, Logic, must be one of the strongest people alive. From birth he was hurled into a world of adversity and the cruel realities of drugs, poverty and racism stared right in his eyes from the very moment he would first open them. Things that could have made him weak only made him stronger, and what should have made him a mere statistic turned him into a role model for others.

Name: Logic (Young Sinatra)
My style and/or skills have been compared to: Well, to be honest, we live in an era where everyone feels the need to compare. I’ve gotten Drake because I sing, Mac Miller because my skin is white even though my father is Black, and J. Cole because of my raw lyricism. However when its all said and done I am Logic.
Watch Logics interview with gagorder.me where Logic talks about his Young Sinatra nickname, his influences, fans, and where he sees himself in the future.
Hailing from the DMV, more specifically Maryland, 22-year-old rapper Logic has been steadily cranking out music over the past couple of years that, at times, makes you feel like you’re back in ’96. The funny thing about it, though, is that’s precisely his goal.
Never one to conform to “what’s hot” or “what’s buzzing,” Logic has been inspired by the Hip-Hop that helped redefine the genre and culture throughout the 1990s. Artists and groups like Nas, Wu-Tang, Jay-Z, and Gangstarr, are all influences of the young rapper, who has found a way to combine what he loved about each artist and give you something that is raw, lyrical, innovative, and fresh, while at the same time being 150% Logic.
AllHipHop.com spoke to the newly anointed Breeding Ground artist to hear his story, discover his inspirations, and find out what’s to come in the future from the Maryland native. Find out below:
AllHipHop.com: When did you first fall in love with Hip-Hop and decide that you wanted to be a rapper?
Logic: Well, I first started for real when I was about 15 years old. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen the movie Kill Bill, but the whole score is done by RZA from Wu-Tang. I didn’t really know Wu-Tang. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I knew your Nas’ and your Biggie’s and stuff but I wasn’t really that big into it. I always loved the music but when I listened to the score, I was into Anime and Kung-Fu movies and stuff and when I heard that I was just like “wow!” The combination of Kung-Fu and Rap blew me away so I started listening to RZA, Raekwon, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, everybody, and it just opened up a whole new life for me, I guess.

“The second I jump on a stage, I’m rocking it, ain’t nobody stopping it
Whoever goes on after me, I’m sorry, ain’t topping it.”
