Logic isn’t slowing down. Born Sir Robert Bryson Hall, the rapper is fresh off his third studio album, “Everybody.” The album featured his hit single “1-800-273-8255” which spent 42 weeks on the chart and peaked at number three.
But long-time fans know Logic for his various mixtapes, releasing his “Young, Broke, and Famous” mixtape in 2010. This was soon followed up by his “Young Sinatra” mixtape trilogy. This trilogy includes: “Young Sinatra,” “Young Sinatra: Undeniable,” and “Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever.” Since then, he has released three studio albums: “Under Pressure,” “The Incredible True Story,” and the aforementioned “Everybody.”
Now, Logic has released a new mixtape. A follow-up to 2016’s “Bobby Tarantino,” “Bobby Tarantino II” was released on March 9, 2018.
The mixtape gives Logic his second number-one on the Billboard Hot 200. The chart looks at traditional album sales, streaming, and digital sales. Supported mostly by streams, this mixtape is Logic’s second number-one in less than a year.
The young rapper is currently signed to Visionary Music and Def Jam Recordings. He, however, has since branched out and created Elysium. This record label holds a special place in his heart as he sees himself as more than a rapper. Logic stated, on creating the record label, that he sees it as a space his artists can grow and experiment with their music:
“I wanted a place where they can feel free and literally do whatever they want because this is so much more than just music.”
Logic’s sentiment that it’s about more than just music hits more than those creating the songs. It also refers to his fans.
“Logic sheds light on the social issues that are concerning our society. He talks about different topics such as mental health, injustice, and inequality which have an effect on many lives in different ways,” says Nicole Geissberger, a student and a softball player here at Greenville.
Not only does Logic speak to social issues, he also gives hope. This sentiment is especially true for Greenville student Laura Rayson. “Logic is someone that I look up to because his words and music give me and others like me something to hold on to when days get hard. His new album ‘Everybody’ has so much to offer everyone that listens.”
But that isn’t all. Logic will also embark on a tour to support his mixtape. Titled, “Logic Presents: Bobby Tarantino vs. Everybody Tour,” it will feature guests NF and Kyle. NF, birth name Nathan John Feuerstein, might be best known for topping both Christian and secular charts, as well as his certified gold single “Let You Down.” Kyle, birth name Kyle Harvey, might be best known for his song “iSpy” and for being one of Rolling Stone’s artists you need to know.
Logic’s tour will begin June 8 in Boston, Massachusetts. The tour will hit major cities like New York, Atlanta, Detroit, and Los Angeles. Most notably, St. Louis is included as a stop. On August 3, Logic, NF, and Kyle will be at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater. Ticket prices range from $25.00 in general admission on the lawn to $39.50 in the center row to $59.50 closer.
