It’s been one hell of a year for Visionary Music Group/Def Jam crooner, Logic. When you’re junior mixtape exceeds 500,000 downloads in a short years time, it’s not easy to maintain the same charisma, confidence, and quality and delivery it cohesively in a full bodied 20 track mixtape. Logic is that minority statistic, disproving critics that were convinced a major deal would lead to “sell out records”. Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever epitomizes the intersection of fluent lyricism and major mainstream production. Yes, he signed to Def Jam, but it should be noted that his core is still VMG. Logic has not changed. The team has not changed. The music has not digressed. The bank account….may have gained a few fruitful commas.
“Everybody talk about logic, no sell out
Bitch I had a deal for you before it fell out” – Logic (Tim Westwood Freestyle)
I’d give you a track by track analysis of this project, but quite honestly if I committed to that, I would be sitting here for more hours than I have. Ultimately, I’m a fan just like you. We share the same passion when listening to the music. From here I can only hope those who haven’t opened their ears to Logic do just that. Listen. I won’t tell you to play this record or play that record because it’s all personal preference. The substance and depth is consistent track to track. Yes, there are some notable features, but to be quite honest, Logic outshines them all. Enjoy the music, you’re witnesses the come up of a legendary figure.

I know last week I posted a remix mixtape someone did of MF DOOM, but I am more excited to be posting up this fresh track from the master lyricist. Collaborating with one of Hip-Hop’s top producers right now, Clams Casino and MF DOOM were meant to work together. Clams did a incredible job on this usual DOOM vibed beat, it really sets up MF DOOM to spit as he does, with the the utmost understandings of the universe. No release date yet, but this track will release sometime this year.

Nothing better to hype up your already highly anticipated mixtape than a brand new video and a brand new track. Chance had the opportunity to link up with the likes of illRoots (directed the video), Ab-Soul, and Skrillex on his latest trip to LA, and I had the opportunity to hear some of the stories. Let’s just say I hope Chance goes out to LA again soon. The song itself is just another example of why Chance is the next big thing. Chance’s lyrics are on another level, evidenced by “lean all on the square, that’s a fucking rhombus,” as some body who failed geometry, even I could appreciate that line. The video, filmed by the great people of illRoots, is original and awesome, and captures the mood of the song perfectly. Check out the video above and be on the lookout for Acid Rap, April 30th.

A San Francisco native going by the name, Grip Grand, took it upon himself to use 12 different acapellas from the legendary MF DOOM and remix them into this mixtape. MF DOOM, who is known for not being accepting of remixes of his works, actually posted this up on his Facebook, mind blown. After taking a full listen to the mixtape, I understand why the rapper was ok with these remixed works. The beats do not only sound like classic DOOM, but the other samples used in the tracks leave me wondering if he actually played a part in the production of these. Whether or not he actually did (most likely not), it is really cool to see him support remixes of his works like this.

After landing one of the last spots in this years XXL Freshman Top 10, Maryland hot spitter Logic drops off his newest single off his highly anticipated mixtape, Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever. It’s been a glorious few weeks for Logic fans. Showers of new content. After wrapping up his first European tour Logic x GRVTY presented the newest episode of Just Another Day: Europe, we saw Logic’s XXL Freshman solo feature, the face of Visionary Music Group announced he had signed a major deal with Def Jam Recordings (empowered to still make the music he wants to make), he obliterates one of Outkast’s most legendary records (paying respect to the legends) on his new single “Roll Call”, and most recently shares his studio session at Tim Westwood’s crib in London where he takes lyricism to a new level. In a nutshell, Logic’s non-stop grind is steadily spilling out of the studio into the ears of his fans. With his forthcoming mixtape, Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever, dropping on May 7, Logic is about two months away from being “THAT DUDE” in hip-hop.
Oh, I forgot to mention he also announced another nationwide tour beginning this May. Grab your tickets before they sell out.

Chance drops off the fourth and most likely final single due for his upcoming mixtape, ACID RAP. Given $5000 for the video, Chance and Hannibal Burress navigate downtown LA and see what $5000 can get them. The beat is a nice relaxing one that emphasizes Chance’s flow. Big things for Chance in the future. Acid Rap coming to you on the 30th.
