A lot has happened for Logic since he’s appeared on the XXL Freshmen cover in 2013.
Shortly after getting recognition for his spot last year, the Maryland native inked a deal with Def Jam and went straight to work on his major label debut. This was supplemented by a vigorous tour schedule with the likes of Kid Cudi and Big Sean, as well as later on with his own Visionary Music Group artists. That same year also marked the release of his most successful mixtape, Young Sinatra: Welcome To Forever, which featured his lyrical prowess in tracks like “Roll Call” and “Walk On By.”
It seems like Logic is set up well now for the year ahead. He’s currently on the road for his While You Wait Tour, and steadily supplying his fans with new music to hold them over. Fresh off the release of his laid-back cut “Alright” featuring Big Sean, Logic kicked it at the XXL offices to speak on his first mixtape, quitting his odd jobs to pursue music, the future of Visionary Music Group and more. —Eric Diep
