Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Logic – Young Sinatra: Undeniable [Mixtape]

“I used to follow my dreams, until I caught up to them” – Logic

Word association. I say “Logic”, you say …? Lyrics, versatility, confidence? Those are just a few of the 22 year old’s most distinguished characteristics.

I was first introduced to Logic by Chris Zarou last July when he signed an independent record deal with Visionary Music Group. Christening my ears withLogic’s debut mixtape, Young, Broke, & Infamous, it was evident the young Maryland MC bolstered a repertoire unlike any other up and coming hip-hop artist. Mainstream beats, lyrics with a deeper flavor than seven layer lasagna, & a repeated intellectual and versatile flow. At that time, Logic had a slim 1,500 Facebook fans and a couple thousand Twitter followers. With very little blog coverage at that time, college sites began to join the movement which sparked a very successful sophomore mixtape, Young Sintra. Playing off his idol, the great Frank Sinatra, Logic’s fan base (shout out #RattPack & #BobbySoxers) was steadily growing. Logic has said Young Sinatra was a representation of the transformation of him turning from a boy into the young man he is today. Keeping the core values consistent with Young, Broke, & Infamous, Logic offered more originality and even more versatility. Serving up a blend of tracks for the streets, the avid fan of lyricism, college students, and even the fine groupie women (Bobby Soxer’s).

At this point in time, there is nothing better than new logic in my eardrums.  Taking a detour from the first single off his upcoming mixtape (still untitled), Logic has some fun going in over the Justice sampled track, “D.A.N.C.E.”.  When I heard Wale go in on this beat a couple years back, it’s since been a staple for any party playlist I compile.  With an infusion of electro and disco, Logic (being a fellow DMV artist) maintains his lyrical aggression delivering a sequence of lines that you’ll be reciting for days on days on days.  It’s cool to see Logic switch up his sound from his previous single, “Young Sinatra III”, which was a very raw sounding hip-hop track, but maintain his consistency at the same time.

I’m warning you now kids, you’re witnessing the birth of hip-hop’s next star.  Being featured in XXL Magazine’s “The Break” just yesterday, this kid’s going to be everywhere before you can spell “Bobby Soxer” backwards.  If you’re not with the movement, join in below and make sure to check his previous single YS3 after the break.  The mp3 will be released once the video reaches a certain number of views.  V’s up.  #Visionary

If you saw the video on monday, you’ve more than likely been waiting for the mp3 to drop.   Well, Logic promised that once the video hit 75,000 views, he would release the mp3.  Surpassing his goal by nearly 25,000 in a mere 48 hours, I present you the first single off Logic’s third coming mixtape, ??????.  If you haven’t watched the video yet, I suggest doing so, twice.  It’s that refreshing.

After introducing Logic to the majority of you only a couple months ago, he has dropped one hell of a mixtape and a handful of dope videos to go with it.  Shot by GRVTY, here are the newest visuals from the Maryland’s own, Logic. Produced by Black Diamond, “All I Do” may come off as a mellow track, but the hooks catchy enough to get a crowd of people chanting.  If you’re feeling this track and video, be sure to catch up with Logic below.  I see you Gumby!

Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Logic – Young Sinatra (Mixtape)

 “Mafiatic mindstate, Hip-Hop heads never die we multiply then dominate” -Logic

With that being said, where are all my hip-hop heads at?  Logic has been a regular feature here on FNT over the past couple of months with the release of his three previous visual singles off this project, “Mind Of Logic” as well as “Young Sinatra II” & “Just Another Day“, as he has quickly rose to a favorite for hip-hop fans around the blogosphere.  This 22 track project has finally arrived, and the self dubbed, “Young Sinatra” takes another step forward in his journey to success.

“I can feel it now the fame is coming soon, how can sky be the limit when there’s footprints on the moon”

It’s not often talent like this strikes us out of the blue.  Logic has exploded on the scene, showcasing uncanny delivery with his crispy clean voice and meaningful lyrics.  Still only 21 years old, Logic is an artist that I truly believe yields the potential to make a successful and prosperous career in the game. His progression since his breakout mixtape, “Young Broke, & Infamous” is definitely evident, even though I was completely beside myself when I first heard his debut tape.  Rather than mixing in some industry beats and remixes as he did on his previous tape, Logic brings us an all original piece of work, working with various producers and collecting only a few features.  One of the most confident young artist’s out there, he is not scared to share his feelings with his fans, boasting his life accomplishments on record.  You have to know you have talent when you compare yourself to arguably one of the greatest faces in music, Frank Sinatra.  Typically, I’d resent that, but here, I can’t help but embrace it.

Upon initial discovery of Logic, the first artist that came to mind was J. Cole.  Huge shoes to fill, yes, but too many similarities for my not to at least explore the belief.  Logic is definitely his own artist and is not biting anyone’s style, but his lyrical mindset, the way he carries himself, his story, etc, remind me of a young J. Cole.  Only time will tell, but listen to this project and maybe my comparison won’t sound so obscure.
